Tell Congress to Stop Lobbying for Monsanto!
Feds Lobbying for Monsanto
Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, is making us sick at alarming rates
Evidence is mounting that the massive use of glyphosate, also known as Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, is making us sick at alarming rates. I just signed a petition urging the EPA and FDA to Immediately suspend the use of glyphosate.
Tell General Mills and Cheerios: Please Label All of your Products that Contain GMOs. Better Yet, Get GMOs Out of All your Brands!
Coca-Cola: Stop funding anti GMO labeling campaigns
The public just learned that Coca-Cola has secretly contributed more than a million dollars to campaign against the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In addition to its soft
drinks, the company owns many brands marketed as healthier alternatives, including Honest Tea, Powerade, Odwalla, Vitamin Water and Simply Orange. Coca-Cola’s CEO, Muhtar Kent, says, “We have provided a tremendous amount of choice to people.” But when it comes to your right to know how your food was produced, Coca-Cola has joined biotech giant Monsanto in trying to keep you in the dark.
Many companies, including Dole Food Company, and Mars, Inc., have responded to consumer pressure and stopped giving money to fight GMO labeling. We are calling on Coca-Cola to join them. sign petition

Pass a New Farm Bill!
And Don’t Leave Sustainable Agriculture Stranded!
We need a full, fair five-year farm bill for our nation’s farmers and eaters! It is long past time to get this done. The farm bill Congress passes can’t be just any farm bill: it needs to reform outdated farm subsidies, protect natural resources, and invest in a healthier future for all of us. sign petition
New FDA Rules Intend to Hurt Family Farmers While Reducing Fresh Local Food
FDA’s new proposed rules as written will unfairly burden family farmers, target sustainable and organic farming, and reduce the availability of fresh, local food in our communities
Reject Agent Orange-Resistant GMO Crops
I encourage the U.S. Department of Agriculture to do a thorough environmental review of new genetically engineered seeds resistant to 2,4- dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) before deregulating these crops and allowing them to go to market without ANY government oversight.
2,4-D is a toxic herbicide associated with serious health risks. These GMO crops will also, like their predecessors, lead to much greater use of even more dangerous chemicals, the development of more herbicide-resistant weeds, destruction and genetic contamination of neighboring crops, and severe economic impacts on other farmers.
Right now, Starbucks is serving milk to millions of customers every day from factory farms along with baked good products chock full of GMOs. Tell Starbucks to stop fighting against GMO labeling and commit to serving the most sustainable dairy option – organic milk – at all of its locations. sign petition
Stop Monsanto’s secret plan to Kill GMO labeling
Right now Monsanto and giant food companies are scheming behind the scenes to introduce a bill in Congress that would kill mandatory state GMO labeling efforts and replace it with a gutted version of a bill to preempt states’ rights and give the illusion of serious regulation. sign petition
Former Monsanto Attorney and Super Monsanto Lobbyist Michael Taylor Has been Appointed the FDA Food Safety CZAR?
Don’t Let the FDA Destroy Organics: Act Today!
Not only is former Monsanto attorney and super lobbyist Michael Taylor, the man who crafted the FDA’s 1992 policy that won’t allow GMO labeling in the U.S., back at the FDA, but under the Obama administration Michael Taylor has been appointed the food safety czar and is responsible for crafting new rules that could drive tens of thousands of America’s small, local and organic family farmers out of business.
