30 Bananas a Day!

What’s Organic About Organic? is an entertaining, educational, and empowering documentary feature that delves deep into the dirty challenges that arise when a grassroots agricultural movement evolves into a booming international market. From farm fields to government meetings to industry trade shows, this film takes a sobering look at the hidden costs of conventional agriculture and explains why the organic food debate extends well beyond personal choice and into the realm of social responsibility. Together we must look forward towards a new future of chemical-free pastures where our health, the health of our planet, and the agricultural needs of our society are truly greener! :D

Check out http://whatsorganicmovie.com/ to see the trailer, buy the DVD, and view the showtimes (and post-screening speakers/events) scheduled for this weekend!!

All my best,
Laura

Definitely one of those ‘food for thought’ films feeding hungry minds by helping to raise eco-consciousness among consumers wondering why they should care about organic farming…

• Number of pesticides classified as carcinogenic that are presently applied in massive amounts to our major food crops: 53
• Number of daily pesticide exposures of the average child in America: 5
• Amount of toxic synthetic chemicals used in organic agriculture: 0
• Number of tillable acres worldwide: 3.5 billion
• Number of acres worldwide currently farmed organically: 76.6 million
• Number of Americans who support the labeling of genetically modified foods: 90%
• The only federally regulated label that expressly prohibits genetic modification: USDA Organic
• Number of greenhouse gas emissions attributed to all food and agriculture: 31%
• Amount of carbon dioxide that could be captured if organic farming practices were applied to all the cropland on the globe: 39%
• Amount of conventionally produced food products sold in the US: 96.5%
• Amount of organically produced food products sold in the US: 3.5%

Help initiate the change needed to bring about stronger organic regulation and progressive food policy! :))
