Imagine a world
where the land is fertile, the water is clean, the air is fresh and all are
fed. In this world nature is treated as a community, not a commodity, and our
food is healthy for us as well as the planet. We all wish for this - but how do
we get there from here?
One simple step is to move toward
a plant-based diet, for our food choices profoundly effect the whole web of
life on Earth. The good news is that the healthiest way to eat is also the most
economical, the most compassionate and the least destructive. What's best for
us is also best for the planet.
EarthSave is dedicated to helping
create a better world by showing the powerful impact of our ordinary eating
habits and promoting positive alternatives. We educate people about the dietary
link to environmental degradation; encouraging sound nutrition, conservation of
resources and sustainable agriculture. We show how an animal-based diet, and
the factory farming which underlies it, causes enormous depletion and pollution
of the natural world, suffering for the animals and danger to our own health.
EarthSave includes people of all
kinds taking informed action to heal our lives and planet. Through books, audio
and video tapes, speaking tours, local support and action groups, school
nutrition and environmental programs, conferences, seminars, workshops and
wilderness outings, we encourage a responsible approach to restoring balance,
kindness and health to our society.
EarthSave Cincinnati is a local group,
affiliated with EarthSave International, that was formed to promote eating
plant-based foods, sharing concerns for our environment,
compassionate treatment of animals and improved health. We sponsor a monthly
program featuring a vegetarian potluck and speaker on the third Sunday of the
month at the Clifton United Methodist Church except for
outdoor programs during warm weather. We encourage you to learn more about us
and what we believe by exploring our web pages and visiting us at any of our
activities (See our Events page).
