What do Customers Think About Regenerative Agriculture and How are Brands Adapting?

DO CONSUMERS CARE ABOUT FARMERS, PESTICIDES, WATER, WASTE & SOIL? THE ANSWER IS...

"I appreciate companies that see the connection between cause and effect. I think it is one of the most important aspects of humans within nature. We have the power to stop destroying and polluting the waters and soil around us. I respect and admire companies who strive to minimize their negative impact. I reward companies who take the time and effort to think about the process they use to obtain their resources and products.” — Male, 25-34, North Carolina

The highest ranked items (7 on a 7-point scale): 

  • gives fair payment to farmers and ranchers

SESSION SPOTLIGHT

AGRICULTURE Farmers Are Carbon Heroes

Soil carbon not only stores carbon dioxide (CO2), but also offers other benefits—it acts as a chemical filter (with soil minerals) for clean water, reduces soil erosion, conserves water, provides microbial habitats and sources of long‐term slow‐release nutrients, and improves soil structure and productivity. Soil organic matter (SOM) can be stockpiled using numerous best management practices including sustainable forestry practices; no‐till and conservation tillage in cropped land; cover cropping; and forage, agro-forestry, wetland, and grassland management.


This session explores the economic benefits that come with a regenerative approach to carbon sequestration through agriculture and ranching.

The #BillionPersonMovement Global Challenge was created by ReGenFriends for organizations and companies to share their programs and ideas to reach a billion people by Earth Day 2023.
