It’ll have to come from the grassroots, with people petitioning. When the organic standards were developed there was a movement to allow industrial sewage, or basic sewage refuge to be used as a fertilizer. And it was only the grassroots movement that stopped that from being allowed. In other words – it was a natural fertilizer, but it was not what those of us involved in the industry wanted to see happen. We came together, we stopped it. Where too often small producers on the meat and poultry side, those of us doing what I call clean food are less than two percent of what’s being produced today. And yet, too often we go, “well, they’re not as good as me. They don’t do it this way, they don’t do it that way.” And yet the major producers – these commodity agro-industrial producers are laughing their way to the bank. Meanwhile, we’re not making any headway in what really needs to be accomplished. So we need to get over our egos a bit, sublimate that, and get to work cooperating and approaching the different representatives and the consumers and the schools, and start teaching people what the opportunity and what the alternative could be.
