What we're about

Do you ache to make a difference with what’s happening with our planet? Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and engage in effective activism in collaboration with a dynamic, committed community?

Eat for the Earth Santa Cruz welcomes your participation!

Many people are unaware that there is a connection between animal agriculture and climate change, pollution, deforestation, species extinction, and many other serious environmental challenges. Eat for the Earth Santa Cruz is working to make it easier for people to eat a more earth-friendly diet—more plants and less animal products.

You might call yourself an environmentalist. Or a vegan, vegetarian, or flexitarian. Or a lover of the earth or concerned citizen. Or an omnivore who aligns with our mission.

Whatever you call yourself, we are glad you found this group!

Whatever you call yourself, you are welcome to join this community. If you feel the call, then your unique skills and sensibilities are needed for this movement!

Our intent is to transform Santa Cruz County into a model of sustainable eating. We hope you will join us!
