Welcome to Food Earth Health
On this site I will be writing and sharing information and resources about the relationship between the food we eat, the products we use on our bodies, the things we use in our everyday lives, our health and the health of our Earth. Rather than focus on what is wrong and rather than tearing down specific products and practices and companies and dwelling on the ‘dark side’, I would like to pursue what is good and safe and clean and sustainable about the foods and products that are being grown, harvested, manufactured, packaged and presented to us as consumers. I would like to highlight those goods that give us glowing health, that do not impact our ecosystems in a harmful way, that are safe for the people that bring them to the shelves including the people that harvest and manufacture them and the workers that resource the raw materials that go into them. What we focus on and feed with our attention grows and gains strength. So on this site we will focus on the innovative ideas and practices that are helping us to preserve our health and our precious ecosystems on our amazing, life giving Earth.
I hope you will join me for this journey into what is good out there and that you will support those efforts by using the real power that you have at your finger tips; your power and influence as a consumer. Each time we make a purchase of any kind, we are casting a vote. It is at the moment that money changes hands that we have the opportunity to make a difference, to define what we want and what we will not accept for ourselves, our fellow man and our life giving Earth.
In the words of author and marine biologist, Rachel Carson, ““The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.”
