Dear Organic Consumer,
I am writing to you today from the Global Climate Summit in Paris.
Before I explain why I’m here, I have two messages for you.
First, from all of us at OCA, and our sister network in Mexico, Via Organica, thank you for being a part of this growing and increasingly powerful food and farming movement.
Second, before you dig into your Thanksgiving dinner, take a minute to thank the soil, Mother Nature and conscious farmers. Without fertile soil, without hard working farmers, there would be no food on our dinner plates.
That brings me to why an international delegation from the Organic Consumers Association and our new project, Regeneration International, is gathered in Paris. We are here to ask world leaders from the 190 nations attending the United Nations COP21 climate negotiations to hear—and to act—on our message of hope.
Our message is both simple and urgent. Healthy soils are necessary to feed the world. They are also the planet’s largest carbon sink. If we fix the soils, we can feed the world, and cool the planet.
