It's been an exciting week here in San Francisco as folks gathered to offer a counter voice to a big corporate bluewashing conference. You can read all about it in two pieces this week from our friends at Food and Water Watch -- one from Wenonah Hauter and another from Jeff Conant.

Our new book is now on sale for our loyal readers for only $14.95 -- a steal for such a beautiful, full-color book. Spread the word.

Thanks for reading,

Tara Lohan, Senior Editor
