Dear Green American,
New Year, New Brew!
It's a New Year and it's time for a New Brew. Starbucks is on every corner so it's easy to make it a quick pit stop on the way to work or while out shopping. However, Starbucks doesn't have to be a place of habit.
Take our pledge to commit to one month visiting alternative coffee shops. Bonus points if they serve fair trade and organic coffee and milk!
After a month, you might find that, walking one more block, you have a new favorite place, and your money is backing more progressive companies that support sustainable farming and agricultural practices.
Take the pledge!
Tell Us About Your Local Indy Coffee Shops with Organic Milk
We want to get the word out about great local coffee shops that serve organic milk. We are building a map that will allow shoppers to find better alternatives to big coffee chains.
Send us your favorite local coffee shop; bonus if they serve fair trade and organic coffee in addition to milk.
If your favorite shop doesn't currently serve organic milk, let the staff know you would like them to. Hearing from you and your friends may be the tipping point the owners need. If the shop does make the shift, tell us about it!
Calling All Chef-tivists!
In 2014, we launched a farmer-grower initiative to get more in touch with food producers that are doing things better and focusing on changing the food landscape.
Now, we're looking for chef activists - "chef-tivists" - (professional or amateur) who use food to stand for something greater.
As an organization, we care a lot about the ingredients that go into our food and so do chefs. Some chefs take this a step further and speak out about issues threatening our food system, such as GMOs.
Know anyone in your neighborhood who fits this description? Please let us know!
#NonGMOLunch Pics on Instagram
Let's be honest. We all like sharing pictures of our food on Instagram. Sometimes it's because your meal is just too pretty, or sometimes it's because you made something new and are really proud it turned out tasty.
We are asking all of you to take the conversation around GMOs to Instagram.
Use the hashtag #NonGMOLunch on Instagram to share your favorite GMO-free meals with your friends and families. Make sure to follow us so you can tag us in the photo too!
