Together we create

22 Aug 2019 Together we create

This week I was all of a sudden not the administrator of Facebook pages that I had started myself. While it is annoying it also made me think about the fair food forager app

There are many Facebook pages who’s sole purpose is to post, discuss, share and learn about environmental issues among other like-minded people. This is exactly what the fair food forager app does. It’s a space for people looking to reduce their impact and discuss solutions and issues of sustainability. 

Social media is so controlled these days. I notice that if I engage in something negative like a story on an Alan Jones rant, that’s all I see for the following days and I have to search really hard for something uplifting. 

Fair food forager isn’t doing this, and while it doesn’t have a billion users, it does make you feel good. And if I head off on a road trip I can also use it to find ethical and sustainable food. 

When I find something in my travels like a beautiful vegetarian café or a farmers market. I can either “check-in” to suggest it on the app or submit it through the website. Helping the next app user travelling through the area to reduce their impact on the planet while recognising that some businesses are doing their best.

If I grow some vegetables at home, make something great for dinner or just take a great photo in nature I can share it with the people who get me and I love that.

I can follow friends and learn from them, hear of events like clean-ups, tree planting, music, recipes or new food venues. 

Unbiased of course but this app looks good and makes me feel good, focussing on good news rather than controlling what I see. I still get to hear about major events but I'm not bombarded with the sometimes sad state of things and I think we need to feel hopeful if we are going to make change.

Download, log on, create a profile and start sharing. Lets help each other, as a community we will change everything.
