The Mighty Earth “Clean It Up, Tyson” Campaign, is working in 9 communities across the nation to push for more sustainable farming methods.
The group is demanding that Tyson Foods–the nation’s largest meat producer–eliminate fertilizer and manure pollution in their supply chain, which is contaminating ground water, rivers, and oceans.
The Mighty Earth ‘Clean It Up, Tyson’ Campaign will have an initial meeting next Wednesday (1/17) from 6pm-7pm at The Book Bin in Onley to talk about both the national campaign and some of the challenges particular to the Eastern Shore, and take action with LTE writing.
The official Campaign Kickoff Meeting is the following Wednesday (1/24) at 7pm at the Naomi Makemie Presbyterian Church in Onancock. This will be a larger meeting and the best way to get involved moving forward.
