Food, Inc., the movie, encourages viewers to "take part" in helping build a sustainable, healthy environment. They direct viewers to a website, called Take Part and oh what a website it is. It covers everything and anything related to our environment and provides a number of areas that you as a consumer, teacher, parent, advocate, business-owner -- whatever it is, -- can be a part of changing our world in an effort to prevent the environment from growing worse. You can even become an "eco-snoop" if you want. I clicked on the Issues button and went to food, which led me to organic vs local and a plethora of other subjects relating to organic food. There's a good article on buying local vs buying organic (bottom line - buy both and seek out local organics). I'll be reading for a couple weeks on this one. Very, very informative website. Many of the pages link to Treehugger.com and many of the organic articles come out of Rodale.
