Save Organic Suppliers (SOS) Earth/Japan is a newly formed international charitable non-profit effort to bring attention, aid and ongoing support to families, farmers, harvesters, producers, distributors and retailers who have dedicated their lives to improving the health of people and the Earth by providing high quality, organic, locally produced, communally supportive, and environmentally sustainable foods and products.
This effort was launched in response to the recent and ongoing disaster in Japan which affected numerous traditional organic food producers including an organic vegetable farmer who committed suicide. Due to the radiation from the crippled nuclear power plant farmers and other organic producers in the affected area may never be able to operate again. There is also little hope of assistance from the authorities for these producers. The aim for SOS-Earth/Japan is to acknowledge and provide assistance toward reestablishing the livelihood of those organic producers affected by the disaster through international support.
Current efforts in Japan include promoting the completion of the film "Uncanny Terrain" by filmmakers, Ed. M. Koziarski and Junko Kajino, who are currently in Japan identifying and documenting the struggles of organic farmers in Fukushima affected by the radiation. Please support the completion of this film by visiting their website and make a contribution.
The long term aim of SOS Earth is to be a resource for and establish a permanent fund that will provide assistance to organic producers in need worldwide to overcome all threats, natural and man-made, toward establishing a sane planetary food system for the benefit of all and our home, planet Earth. The ultimate aim of SOS Earth is simple: to make the whole world organic once again as it was not too long ago for the benefit of everyone and every living thing on Earth and by doing so we will:
Once again, our aim is to make the entire world organic, again.
