Dear Green American ,
It's almost Mother's Day, and in honor of all mothers everywhere, we are renewing our demand that the US makers of infant formula get the GMOs out!
For the many mothers who must use infant formula, or choose to use formula, options are limited. Ninety percent of all US formula sales come from just three companies -- companies that have been actively fighting against GMO labeling in the US.
To protect rights of Moms (and Dads), take action with us today to demand non-GMO baby formula.
Mark Your Calendar: Starbucks Call-In Day on May 19
In just a few months, thousands of consumers have signed the petition asking Starbucks to provide organic dairy milk.
This month, we need your help taking the campaign to the next level. On May 19, GMO Insiders across the country will be making direct calls to Starbucks headquarters, flooding the phone lines with our demand for the highest standard of sustainability when it comes to their dairy.
Mark your calendars for May 19 - and stay tuned for call-in day instructions!

Spring has finally sprung - and we celebrated by joining Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds for their Annual Spring Planting Festival in Mansfield, MO, this past weekend.
In 2000, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds Founder Jere Gettle (left) hosted a garden show in a makeshift tent in front of his seed store, attracting a crowd of 400 people. Last year, the Festival drew more than 7,500 attendees. The event includes a full presentation schedule of speakers, over 100 vendor booths selling everything from spring produce to wool, and historical demonstrations on beekeeping, blacksmithing, and more.
Farmers and gardeners were excited by the work of GMO Inside and are eager to work with us to get GMOs out of our foods. If you are a farmer interested in sharing your story or working with us, or know a farmer who would be, please let us know.
