Brighter Green is examining the environmental, political, economic, and social consequences of our food choices, and how an increasingly industrialized, corporatized, and globalized food and agricultural system is affecting the climate, food security, public health, animal welfare, and resource allocation in countries around the world. Brighter Greenís work encompasses fostering dialogue and encouraging adoption of public policies and practices that support equitable, sustainable agriculture.

Policy papers and video document the rise of meat consumption and spread of Western practices of industrial animal agriculture in China, India, Brazil and Ethiopia.
- What's for Dinner? China Documentary Film
Shot by an all Chinese crew, this half hour documentary chronicles China's rapid adoption of a meat-heavy diet and industrial production methods, and looks at the environmental and social consequences through the experiences of a distinctive set of characters.
- Foodprint Resolution
The first resolution of its kind to link climate change and methods of food production, Foodprint NYC is a collaborative effort by Brighter Green and other members of the NYC Foodprint Alliance to make local, organic, plant-based foods accessible to all New Yorkers.
- Farm Bill White Paper 2007
Co-published with Farm Sanctuary, this document addresses provisions in the 2007 Farm Bill that violate both animal and human rights and contribute to widespread environmental degradation and calls for needed changes.
