Committed to Better Practices and Safer Products

A few weeks ago Moore Charitable Foundation met with Bob Keefe, Mae Wu, Attorney, Health Program, and Linda Greer, Program Director Health & the Environment to discuss one of my biggest concerns: Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) in North Carolina. CAFOs, also known as factory farms, are polluting the state’s air andorganic water at alarming rates, while also creating antibiotic resistance in humans. Denmark has succeeded in curtailing the use of antibiotics by establishing a reporting system forcing farms to disclose how much they are using. The hog farm industry is threatening our basic rights to clean water, clean air, and clean food. Please join the fight for better practices and safer products. When shopping for meat, look for these labels: USDA Certified Organic, American Grassfed Certified, Animal Welfare Approved, Certified Humane.
