New American Dream

Takoma Park, MD

New American Dream helps Americans consume responsibly to protect the environment, enhance quality of life, and promote social justice.

Ever wonder about the impacts of beef and corn, choosing local vs. organic, and buzzwords like "free range" and "all natural"? An increased focus on food, food politics, and sustainable agriculture means consumers have greater access to information about responsible food choices. Unfortunately, even for people who want to "do the right thing," not all the information out there is easily digestible. The Cater to the Earth campaign will address these issues by unpacking the buzzwords and finding the critical links between how your food choices affect the environment, your health, and social justice.

Over the next few weeks, we will expand our educational section and launch a personal pledge page to help illustrate how what you eat affects your carbon footprint. We’ll also blog about food issues, provide you with earth-- and belly-- friendly recipes to try out. The Responsible Purchasing Network will also produce a Green Dining Services guide identifying best practices for institutions looking to make their food-related purchases and services more environmentally sound.
