Food & Farming
9 Oct 2010 - Planet Friendly Farming
Ealing Friends of the Earth visited the Farmers’ Market at West Ealing on Saturday 9th October 2010 to ask the public to support ‘planet friendly farming’.
Virginia Fassnidge, food campaigner for Ealing Friends of the Earth, said: “The way we produce food has a huge impact on the environment. Unfortunately many of our meat producers are causing wholesale environmental damage by the way they feed their animals. Rainforests are being destroyed in South America to grow soya beans for animal feed in Britain . We are asking our MPs to support the Sustainable Livestock bill, which will encourage farmers to feed animal on home grown and rainforest free crops.”
