Buy in Support of GMO's labeling

Although I highly doubt that Prop 37 really lost, we still need to support businesses that take the time and expence to inform us that their products do not contain DNA-altering, good bacteria-altering GMO's.  I have refused to buy one beverage that I formally loved and anything from one popular non-meat burger business that I used to like.  Please read this information from Organic Bytes.

"TAKE ACTION: Boycott the Traitor Brands!

They sat idly by while their parent companies poured millions into defeating Proposition 37, the California Right to Know GMO Labeling initiative. Now, if they want our business, it’s time for the “Traitor Brands” to pony up financial support for I-522, a similar labeling initiative that will be on the ballot in November, in Washington State.

Thanks to all of you who boycotted the brands, wrote to the companies, and caused a ruckus on their Facebook pages, Big Food has taken note. Rumor has it that the parent companies, including Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Unilver, General Mills and others, have broken off from Monsanto and won’t be dumping their profits into trying to defeat any more labeling initiatives. That’s progress, but it’s not enough. If brands like Naked Juice, Odwalla, Kashi, Knudsen, Ben & Jerry’s and others want us back, they need to show us the money. Starting in Washington State. Today. Until they do, let’s keep the pressure on!
