Environmental Working Group Is Taking The Fight

EWG (Environmental Working Group) is taking the fight for GE (Genetically Engineered) labeling straight to companies.
We launched a major campaign targeting Monsanto, Kraft, General Mills, Kellogg's, DuPont and 60 other major companies that are pouring millions of dollars into making sure GE foods aren't labeled. We're calling them out and demanding that they label their products that contain genetically engineered ingredients.
We know it's going to take a massive public outcry to get them to do the right thing. We have nearly 90,000 signatures already, but there's still time for you to add your name before we deliver the petitions. Take action right now to help us get to 100,000 before the October 15 deadline!
We're fighting Big Food on all fronts. Tomorrow, EWG is taking the fight one step further. We're introducing shareholder resolutions at PepsiCo and Coca-Cola demanding that these companies stay out of state fights to label GE foods. CEOs must respond to these resolutions during shareholder meetings. They are critical to a company's brand and reputation. With these new resolutions and your voices, corporate CEOs will sit up and take notice. Thank you for taking action today!
