he Soil Association are running a campaign to stop pollution from synthetic fertiliser. The way we grow our food is damaging the soil, destroying plants and killing wildlife. Emissions from fossil fuel-based nitrogen fertilisers used in intensive farming are sadly contributing to the climate emergency. But it doesn’t need to be this way.
Join them in making a stand against synthetic fertilisers. Together we can:
- Set a target for reducing fossil fuel-based fertiliser use in UK farming
- Help farmers to transition away from these expensive, synthetic fertilisers
- Support nature-friendly farming approaches, like organic, that don’t rely on synthetic fertilisers
They have an online petition – go to their web site https://act.soilassociation.org and look for the fix-fertiliser campaign
