TAKING THE FIRST STEP STARTS WITH FINDING YOUR FEET

The Other Inconvenient Truth

Increasing population and consumption are placing unprecedented demands on agriculture and natural resources. Today, approximately a billion people are chronically malnourished while our agricultural systems are concurrently degrading land, water, biodiversity and climate on a global scale. To meet the world’s future food security and sustainability needs, food production must grow substantially while, at the same time, agriculture’s environmental footprint must shrink dramatically.

Why Charity Shouldn't Be About Guilt

"From an entrepreneurial standpoint, he had an early guiding principle.

"I knew from the beginning that this couldn’t be about guilt. You can’t guilt people to give," he said. "It had to be about opportunity. I had to find a way to get real people, selfish people like me, to invest in this cause."

Harrison revealed to the crowd the three things he set out to do with this charity—all of which, he says, most charities lack. 

1. Find a way to give 100 percent of the profits to the actual cause. 

2. Proof: Make it completely transparent where the money goes.

3. Build a brand.

He’s convinced not only everyday people to donate money, but huge brands like Saks Fifth Avenue to help out in some way.
