Those of us deeply committed to the “green” movement have developed an acute awareness about the food we eat, consumer purchasing trends, and the current status of our planet’s resources. Those committed to living sustainably and ensuring a high quality, chemical-free food supply for our children’s future are aware of the truth. We are not fooled by the million dollar advertising campaigns and propaganda put forth by big business.

So many people today are frustrated and even enraged with the “do nothing” government, big business, and big agriculture. The battle will not be won with tricky politics and big money; instead, it is being won by simple, honest choices.

The truth is that this modern green movement is the largest movement of its kind in the history of the world that was not pushed forward by government or religion—or by any other big institution, for that matter. The movement is grassroots: it is you and me, it is one person at a time, making choices of integrity and thoughtfulness, leading to the unstoppable mass we have today.
