I know there are many more ways I could be promoting Green living. I am especially passionate about protecting our food from GMO’s (genetically modified organisms.) I become frustrated from the helplessness I feel when it comes to fighting large corporations. Corporations who use their money and power to gain what they want from the USDA (United States dept. of agriculture) and the FDA (food and drug administration.) Even if what they want is to alter our food sources to contain harmful chemicals, they seem to be winning favor with both administrations. How can we stop this? We have the right to eat healthy natural foods. These corporations in the “food business” do not have our best interests in mind, they have only a bottom line.
Here’s an easy way we can help. Sign a petition or two. Yep, that easy. Please take a few minutes to check out this link to The Cornucopia Institute. Do a little reading or video watching and sign petitions to take action. Your few minutes signing and/ or sending out a ready-made petition can make a difference. Check out the Action and Reports tabs at the top of the page.
If feels good to be pro-active! Thanks for your help:)
