Business (As usual). Corporate (lack of) Responsibility. (Trashing the) Environment. (Buying) Government. (Disregarding) Health. So many topics this story covers.

For years, there's been a disturbing trend of big corporations quietly buying out smaller organic companies, keeping the label/brand name, and throwing away everything that made these products what they were. But now they have your trust and loyalty and when "organic" is changed to "natural", you think you're getting the same quality product, not suspecting that Genetically Modified Organisms have now invaded your favorite brand.

Another favorite dirty trick is to experiment with GMO seed in public places where they can easily contaminate organic stock, making it no longer organic.

And despite how many people would like to know what's in their food (a whopping 95% would like mandatory labeling of all GMOs) our politicians won't lift a finger and have even gone far in the opposite direction because they are being well paid to (Thanks Citizens United; when future historians search for the point in history when societal and environmental collapse truly began, they will find this case.)

But this latest is an absolute betrayal. Organic bigs Whole Foods, Organic Valley, and Stonyfield Farms are throwing in the towel for kickbacks and the purported promise of future compromise with Monsanto. Their reason: inevitability.

Just because a cause might seem hopeless is no excuse to give up. One seemingly hopeless cause has grown into quite a mighty nation called The United States of America. And as Americans, it is now up to us to take up the fight.

We the people, demand that government once again be for the people, not the corporation. We demand the right to make informed healthy choices. We are no chemical corporation's guinea pigs.

Please read the article. Browse the site. Visit the Take Action page for petitions and letters to sign to remind our leaders who they're really working for. And please, note, and share with everyone however you can.

How did I find out about this and other campaigns? I got a handy new (and still somewhat underdeveloped) free app for my smartphone called Buycott. A simple search of your app store/marketplace should turn up this handy little helper.
