“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
