Event description

Description

Concerned about clean water, climate change, and Big Ag? Join us for Mighty Earth's "Clean It Up, Tyson" 2018 kickoff.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 24, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.

WHERE: Farrell's Lounge, 311 W. Dickson St., Fayetteville

The meat industry is the leading source of water pollution and poses an enormous threat to our climate. As the largest meat company, Tyson has played a central role in bringing about many of our most dire environmental problems. We're working to change this.

The meat industry's biggest impact comes from the corn and soy fed to the farm animals. The feed grown at an industrial scale to feed livestock pollutes waterways with excess fertilizer, depletes the soil, and contributes to the destruction of prairie landscapes. It also causes the release of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas 300 times stronger than carbon. The practices used to grow these grains threaten to radically destabilize our climate.

We don't need to choose between good food and a clean environment. If we get large companies like Tyson Foods to change their practices, the entire meat and feed industry will change for the better.

Join other concerned residents and local organizations on Weds, 1/24 to learn more about the campaign, help us strategize, and take action!
