Mark has an interesting perspective about the world. When he contacted me about doing a guest post about food for Global Patriot, I was a little miffed about how a glutinous little bugger like me can ever be a boon to noble causes. Then he explained how he thought that food was one of the ways that connects us all, and through it – the whole economy of the food industry and how the chain is completely interlinked from the producer/farmer through to the local grocers and ultimately the end consumer. It’s the people, ultimately who opt to for ethical farming methods and organic greens and those of us foodies who champion fresh produce and resist homogenisation (and food over packaging) that we are actually fighting a good fight to keep a healthy, thriving eco system going.
Hope I inspired you a little there, do join the conversation over at Global Patriot.
Why Global Patriot?
I provided a little guest post for one of the coolest new causes around, called Global Patriot. Currently, it is spreading it’s message via a blog – and it’s concept is one which campaigns for ways to care for our entire planet. The issues covered are wide ranging and Mark Lovett is spearheading this effort to tackle them. Some issues include (but aren’t limited to) eliminating hunger and poverty, supporting equal rights as well as climate change and sustainability.
Of course, there are also many hundreds and thousands of organisations out there passionately working hard to solve some of our worlds biggest headaches and one of GP’s aims is also to create awareness for the good work that’s being done and hopefully inspire people to join the conversation to be a patriot, for the world we live in.
