Today, the way we produce food is the number one threat to nature, damaging our lands and water, biodiversity, climate and productivity in our farms, fields and fisheries. This amounts to trillions of dollars in lost benefits from nature—such as clean water and climate mitigation—that affects both people and their pets.
Working Together to Improve Our Food Systems
The Nature Conservancy is working hard to develop sustainable and regenerative food systems that will heal the planet and feed the world. Together with Purina Beyond, we are helping to educate all people on ways we can produce food that doesn’t just avoid harm to the environment, but actively restores nature and reverses previous damage.
By the end of 2023, Purina Beyond will have donated $450,000 to TNC to help advance our conservation efforts, encouraging audiences to learn more about promoting sustainable food production, and ensuring we’re able to feed many generations to come.
You Can Help Us Protect Our Food Systems
We're partnering with Purina to make it easy to take action and work towards more sustainable food systems.

How You Can Help From Home
Each of us can positively impact our local ecosystem with small actions around how we eat and use our resources. Here are three ways you can help:
- Start a simple herb garden. Pet-safe plants like mint, basil, thyme, and sage can be grown on a well-lit window ledge or counter. A simple herb garden enables you to regularly add fresh flavor to your meals with just a few steps between harvest and your plate. Plus, if you have space outdoors, these plants are also great support for our local pollinators.
- Reuse cooking water for plants and get double the use out of your water. Just remember to omit the salt and let the water cool off before reusing it. Water is integral to all aspects of food production, from irrigating fields to processing harvests so every action to conserve it helps our food system.
- Set up a rainwater capture system to help conserve your local supply of treated fresh water as well as preventing soil erosion and runoff pollution—how’s that for a three-in-one positive impact?
