Industrial meat production is the leading cause of water pollution in the United States. Much of the corn and soy grown at an industrial scale to feed livestock pollutes waterways with excess fertilizer, depletes the soil, and contributes to the destruction of prairie landscapes.
We can live in a world with clean drinking water. A few simple practices can dramatically reduce pollution and improve soil health: decreasing fertilizer use, diversifying crops, and managing manure responsibly. If we get large companies like McDonalds and Whole Foods to demand better practices from their suppliers, the entire meat and feed industry will change for the better.
Join other concerned residents and local organizations for a fun event Thursday night to learn more about the campaign, help us strategize how to win, and take action!
RSVP to let us know you can make it, and bring a friend! Kids are welcome.
