In the U.S., our agricultural system relies on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and pesticides, as well as massive amounts of energy-intensive synthetic fertilizers. Industrial crops and chemicals deplete the very soil they depend on, robbing the future of nutrient-rich soil and contributing to climate change. Chemicals and fertilizers run off into rivers, lakes, and oceans, polluting the water and killing wildlife.
