Thankfully Earth Day Is Earth Days This Year

This week marks the 51st year of Earth Day Celebrations, and considering according to Science Direct, the United States is losing soil ten times faster than it’s replenished. We need to pay more attention to what is happening with our farmland. The  Earth Day network strongly supports regenerative farming as a solution to transform farmers into environmental heroes.  

I don’t know any growers who think of themselves as environmental heroes; however, I know many farmers are proud of the way they farm and consider themselves stewards of the environment.  Solutions like adding labels to products identifying them as products of certified regenerative agriculture is a giant leap for progress. 

Growers, ranchers, fruit, and vegetable growers are coming on board rapidly, but we still have lots of ground to cover. It ultimately takes demand from the consumers to make this happen. That is why we are all responsible for the success of this solution, and all play an essential part. Have you considered enjoying a plant-based meal today or using a footprint calculator to determine how your meals impact the planet.
