Dear Green American,
State Labeling Uncertain, County Bans Pass
Oregon is still up in the air! Even though the opposition spent almost $15 million to defeat it, Proposition 92 could still pass, making labeling the law in Oregon in 2016.
Great news: Bans against growing GMOs passed in Maui County, Hawaii and Humboldt County, California!
Thank you to the teams in Oregon, Colorado, Maui, and Humboldt for fighting for our right to know, protecting the land, and raising awareness about the human, environmental, and pollinator toll GMOs and the chemical agricultural industry place on all of us.
Unfortunately, Colorado failed to pass a labeling bill.
The movement doesn’t stop here. The last few years have been filled with hard wrought efforts to establish our right to know. Momentum is still building and these ballet initiatives and bans show just how many people are concerned about GMOs. By corporations spending over $30 million opposing these campaigns, they are sending a direct message to consumers that their business trumps consumer rights. Companies such as Coca-Cola, Monsanto, and DuPont (among others) all joined together to fight consumer’s right to know.
GMO Inside will continue to work with its allies despite the corporate dollars trying to stop these efforts.
You can use your dollars to support companies that shun GMOs and support labeling.
Let anti-labeling companies know that you are not buying their lies or their products.
Got Milk? There’s quite a bit hiding behind that milk mustache.
Dairy is something that the majority of the population consumes on a daily basis, but it is hard to see beyond the red barns on milk containers and know what is really happening in the dairy industry. We want you to have all the facts so that you can make informed decisions when making your purchase at the grocery store.
Our new dairy blog series covers dairy factory farms, antibiotics in the dairy industry, and what organic dairy farmers are doing to create change.
Happy Non-GMO Thanksgiving!
