When you factor in everything it takes to run our energy-intensive, polluting industrial agriculture system, that system turns out to be one of the biggest culprits when it comes to global warming.

Farmers have the power to cool the planet. Consumers have the power to push farmers to grow food using planet-cooling, organic, regenerative practices.
It’s time to power up.
