There’s no need to wait for the next election to powerfully impact the future of our world! Bob outlined the enormous impact of our food choices on our world’s life support system, food supply, resources, climate change, and the other creatures (human and nonhuman) with whom we share this planet. We learned how simple it is to be part of a growing, positive movement that is making a huge difference in our world–and leave feeling more empowered, alive and connected!
