The unrest in our nation and world makes it hard to do our everyday work. So we asked ourselves, what is our work? How are we helping bring a more just society?
Every day at ZEGO, we work hard so people are better nourished by the food they eat. So they can meet their personal goals, support their community, and care for the planet.
Cleaning our food system is fundamental to overcoming the inequities in our society.
People of color suffer disproportionately from the use of toxic pesticides, heavy metal contamination, and environmental toxins. They are more likely to live in food deserts where over processed packaged foods yield empty calories and have chemicals that interfere with executive function.
All this leads to chronic health problems like diabetes, asthma, allergies, and ADHD.
Clean, nourishing food is essential to self-determination.
And so, today we reaffirm to you that
we will continue to fight for your right to know what is in your food, so you can be nourished the way nature intended;
we will work toward setting a new standard that “free from” food for people with chronic disease should have the highest health standard, not just keep you out of the emergency room;
we will continue to use our brand to educate about toxic residue that can be in food, and
we will link arms with you to ask other companies to clean up their supply chains and give you the same transparency ZEGO does.
Transparency is the first step to justice. It helps us see the problems and the solutions.
Thank you for all you are doing to support this movement for equality and justice.
We are better, together.
Stay Healthy, Colleen
