Why this matters

The problem

It’s time to reconnect with the food we eat — starting at home. Switching to organic, plant-based foods from local eco-farms, reducing (or eliminating) meat and dairy consumption, and even growing some of your own food are all steps that help combat climate change, protect forests and waterways, and make us healthier and happier.

Giant corporations have separated us from our food and the people that grow it so they can turn a profit. They’re using toxic pesticides and fertilizers to grow their crops and feed laced with growth hormones and antibiotics for their livestock — and they’re relying on us to turn a blind eye. Small-scale, organic farmers do it better, and we can all play a part in protecting our planet and our health by supporting them.

What you can do

Corporate control has broken our food system. In fact, just six agribusiness giants — Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, Syngenta, Bayer and BASF — control more than 70% of the world’s seed market.
