During the first half of October, AVFCA brought awareness to specific observance days by sharing our original stories that matched these themes:

World Vegetarian Day : "“Apeel” Fruit and Vegetable Protective Coating Is Not So Appealing When You Break It Down”

“Apeel” is a fruit and vegetable coating designed to extend shelf life of the product. There are questions about the safety of this “coating,” including being added to organic certified produce.

No Disposable Cup Day : "Bottled Water vs. Tap: Intentionally Sourcing Your Hydration”

National Face Your Fears Day : "Collective Hypnosis: When Fear Takes On a Life of Its Own”

Moving through life in a collective trance equates to a dumbed-down society. Cast under the spell of group think, especially in isolation, we may search outside ourselves to be rescued. To rise above the mass hysteria, we must speak our truths regardless of popular opinion. [link removed] [[link removed]]

Seed Gathering Season : "Hidden Glyphosates in Your Food: Part One - How to Determine What's Safe For Consumption”

Making sense of the use of glyphosate in your food supply is not an easy task. The prevalence of man-made chemicals in your food, water, cosmetic, and household products is widespread and insidious. The links between contact to harmful chemicals—internally and externally—and unwanted health conditions have been made. [link removed] [[link removed]]

Our team also reads hundreds of articles each week, and those of interest are shared on our social media platforms. However, once or twice a week, our team reads an article that is profound or shares a perspective that is new or from an expert that AVFCA feels should be highlighted. These articles are shared on our Substack.
