Climate change is a global issue, and we can all do our part to combat it. By supporting natural products brands, specifically, you can help mitigate the risks by championing healthy soil and carbon sequestration. Supporting these practices not only helps protect our planet, it also shows that you take your responsibility as a steward of the Earth seriously. But you can’t just talk the talk—you have to act. How? Three Fixers offer excellent advice.
SUSTAINABILITY EXPERT: SHAUNA SADOWSKI
“With up to one-third of global greenhouse gas emissions coming from the food system, and 80 percent of those emissions stemming from agriculture, the biggest opportunity for food companies to support healthy soil and carbon sequestration is through their connections to farms. I recommend supporting brands that work with farmers and support better agriculture with their purchasing power.”
REGENERATIVE FARMER: ALBERT STRAUS
“Support carbon farming, recognized globally as a solution to fight climate change. This regenerative agricultural practice helps move carbon from the atmosphere and put it back into the soil. The pasture grasslands of an organic dairy farm are an ideal environment to implement carbon farming practices. In addition to reversing climate change, carbon farming practices also work to improve crop and pasture productivity. When soils have more organic matter, they provide proper nutrition and naturally increase the volume of pasture production. And with increased pasture production, cows have more nutritional-rich grasses, allowing farmers to reduce outside feed costs.”
REGENERATIVE FARMING ADVOCATE: SARA HARPER
“One of the best ways to support healthy soil and carbon sequestration is to support brands that work directly with farmers who uses regenerative practices or can share how they are working to increase soil health.”
