Small-scale farmers cool the planet
The Fair World Project has announced the release of their latest video: Small-Scale Farmers Cool the Planet. From the devastating impact climate change has already had on parts of the world, to the role industrial agriculture plays in destroying the soil and warming the planet, to the simple solution - organic, regenerative agriculture - this new video explains where we are headed if we continue on our current path, and what we can do to avert a global climate disaster. Ronnie Cummins from the Organic Consumers Association, along with Vandana Shiva and leaders from the Rodale Institute and Via Campesina are featured in the 17-minute documentary that is available here.
The Fair World Project was initially launched by the Organic Consumers Association in 2010 with an emphasis on promoting fair trade in commerce, especially in organic production systems, and protecting the term “fair trade” from dilution and misuse for mere PR purposes, as conscious consumers expand the market for fairly traded products. While still guided by the principles of fair trade, they have expanded their mission to include labor justice, sweat-free apparel and family-scale farming. More information is available here.
