Safe Food and Fertilizer is a grassroots citizens' organization whose mission is to protect human health and the environment by advocating for a ban on the use of hazardous and other industrial wastes in fertilizer, soil amendments, and animal feed. Their goals are to seek the establishment of national standards protective of our most vulnerable populations, especially developing fetuses; to provide technical, regulatory, and educational assistance to organizations, individual and elected officials locally, nationally and internationally; and to ensure that laws governing waste product recycling—and hazardous and solid waste disposal—are enforced at the state, federal, and international levels, litigating when necessary to seek compliance.
Safe Food and Fertilizer was a Brainerd Foundation grantee from 2011 to 2012.
