“I can certainly see that people in the environmental movement are being disheartened… [but] we’ve all got to do our little bit… Actually doing something invigorates you.” – Dr. David Suzuki, academic, science broadcaster and environmental activist.
These have been difficult weeks, watching the death and destruction wrought by hurricanes in the U.S., and massive flooding in Mexico, Sierra Leone and Southeast Asia.
You want to help those in need. You worry where the next storm will hit. We all want to do something.
We can’t undo the wrath of storms past. But the good news is this: Every single one of us can do our part to help cool the planet. And scientists are clear: If we cool the planet, we won’t stop every hurricane, every flood—but we will reduce the amount of rain, flooding, damage and despair.
What can you do? Buy consciously. When it comes to food, that means supporting the farmers and brands that use regenerative farming and land-management practices—practices that restore the soil’s capacity to draw down and sequester carbon.
Next week, our Regeneration International project will bring together about 110 scientists, farmers, activists, educators, climate experts and environmentalists to collaborate on global strategies to scale up regenerative organic agriculture.
This meeting couldn’t be more timely. Or more urgent.
We know you’re being asked to donate to many worthwhile causes, including hurricane relief efforts. We are grateful for any support you can provide for our work around food and farming, and their relationship to climate, healthy economies and communities, and your own health.
We’ve “all got to do our little bit.” As we can attest, it’s invigorating.
