Lotus Foods co-founders Caryl Levine and Ken Lee are committed to changing the way rice is grown around the world. In their efforts to do so, they are proving that reducing methane emissions can work hand-in-hand with increased farmer livelihoods, reductions in water usage and empowerment for women.
Glens’ Garden Market has climate action in its DNA. Founder Danielle Vogel created the Washington, D.C.-based store after leaving a career working on climate change legislation in the U.S. Senate. “Glen’s exists to make climate change progress – one bite at a time – by serving Good Food from close by, and growing relationships with partners, who treat their land, their animals and their ingredients with respect,” says Vogel.
We are excited to announce the rollout of a new Climate Collaborative action group, Retailer Climate Action Progress (ReCAP) Community, to support retailers who want to deepen and expand their climate action efforts. Through virtual monthly gatherings, we will help natural products retailers explore their unique climate challenges and opportunities and create new pathways to meaningful action.

What I witnessed at Climate Day 2018 at Expo West two weeks ago filled me with inspiration and hope – two emotions that are not always easy to come by for those of us working on climate change! The natural products industry is building a climate change movement and has no intention of staying quiet about it.
