The Label It Yourself (#LIY) campaign is a decentralized, autonomous grassroots campaign born out of our broken food system. We have been asking our government to label food products so we can make educated decisions about what we eat. The government has ignored our requests and so we are taking matters into our own hands.
Get your labels at www.labelityourself.org or create our own!
Not vegan or animal rights related necessarily, but genetic engineering should be important to all of us! If you haven’t read much on GMO’s, please take a few minutes to do so and educate yourself on this pressing matter. Just something to think about! Spread the word!
#US GMO Labeling petition
Please sign a petition for the White House to support the mandatory labeling of Genetically Modified Foods. You will need an account to do so. They are halfway towards the required 25,000 signatures needed.
Whether you’re skeptical about the excessive use of Monsanto’s controversial pesticide, Roundup; outraged over the company’s history of suing farmers that have either saved seeds or been victim to crop drift from nearby farms growing genetically modified seeds that Monsanto holds patents on; or perhaps you’re just not convinced that enough evidence exists to support the ubiquity with which genetically modified foods proliferate in this country—whatever your reason—you can avoid funding Monsanto by steering clear of the following Seminis seeds. Opt instead for heirlooms and seeds from suppliers that have signed the Safe Seed Pledge. Then, save your own.
