Good food for people and planet

The choices we make around food are essential to our health and wellbeing, and that of our planet.

In the U.S., our agricultural system relies on GMOs and related pesticides, as well as massive amounts of energy-intensive synthetic fertilizers. Industrial crops and chemicals deplete the very soil they depend on, robbing the future of nutrient-rich soil and contributing to climate change. Chemicals and fertilizers also run off into rivers, lakes, and oceans, polluting the water and killing wildlife.

There is a better way. Green America is working with consumers, farmers, food companies, and allies nationwide to shift our agricultural system from one that is destructive to one that nourishes the soil, sequesters carbon, and provides healthy nutrition to our families. We are leading the fight to get companies to drop GMO ingredients, reduce pesticides, and shift towards organic practices.

We all must eat. Find out how you can better choices, and use your consumer voice with companies, to shift the United States to agriculture that is safe for people and the planet.
