Celebrate Non-GMO Month With Us
This year’s non-GMO month is more important than ever for Washingtonians. We have the opportunity to be the first state to require GMO labeling on the food we buy in grocery stores. Large corporations such as Monsanto and almost every large processed food company in the U.S. are spending unheard of amounts of money to confuse voters on this initiative. GMOs have untold potential to alter our bodies, environment, and local farming economies, but they are virtually unregulated at this point.
Please lend your support by reading about GMOs either here or another trusted site, supporting the Yes on 522 financially, or voting on this landmark issue on November 5th.
The Co-op is celebrating non-GMO month with tons of sales on certified Non-GMO foods as well as an employee generated display with information on GMOs and a selection of our favorite non-GMO foods. Remember, voting with your dollar is always the best way to show corporations what is most important to you.
Look for products everywhere with the certified non-GMO label above. Hopefully we can look forward to GMO labeling on ALL foods so that shopping for the health of our bodies and environment is no longer a guessing game.
The Main Market Co-op would also like to give a big Thank You to PCC Natural Markets in Seattle for lending us their content and photos for this page. Please visit their website at www.pccsea.com.
Here are examples of what a few current GMO labels look like:
