Sustainable America


United States of America

Sustainable America is a new environmental not-for-profit organization dedicated to the dual issues of food and fuel. Food is fuel. The consumption of food and traditional fossil fuels are inextricably linked. Their production is nearing capacity, and shortages in both are a very real near term possibility. Rising prices at the pump become increased costs (or decreased portions) at the grocery, and the combination effectively shrinks already stretched paychecks for millions of Americans. Without a concerted effort at all levels to separate the two—and to develop both component and systemic solutions to agricultural and energy shortcomings—we will be faced with a global crisis. As daunting as the outlook is, there is hope on the horizon. Our goal is to bring together like-minded groups to foster awareness through open dialog and educational outreach, and act as a catalyst for the development and funding of real solutions to the impending food/fuel crisis. Only by thinking and working together can we cultivate the change that fuels our future as a Sustainable America.
