Agitating for Change
When mainstream media starts paying attention, you know you’re having an impact.
An article this week
by the Associated Press confirms that your willingness to boycott
products and sign petitions, your conscious—and conscientious—buying
decisions, are forcing Big Food to make, at the very least, small
changes. According to the report, Americans are not only paying closer
attention to what they eat, they’re making such a stink about
“mysterious, unpronounceable” ingredients that some manufacturers are
reformulating top-selling products.
OK, so we’re still a long way from the finish line. But as Wall Street food analyst, Ali Dibadj, points out in the article:
used to be that people would just decide not to buy the product. Now
they're actually agitating for change. There's a bullhorn—which is the
Internet—so you can get a lot of people involved very quickly."
You are the “people”
Dibadj is talking about. Your involvement, your passion, your energy and
your work are moving the ball forward.
Without you, there is no movement.
