Change The World Wednesday (#CTWW) - GMO Labeling

Welcome back to Change The World Wednesday (#CTWW)!

Wondering how to live greener? You've come to the right place. Each week we challenge ourselves to try a new task ... or "amp up" something we're already doing. We raise our awareness, learn from each other and develop Eco-friendly skills which will improve our lives and protect our planet. Doing so together gives us power ... the power to Change The World!

If this is your first visit, please click HERE for information and a complete list of all the challenges we've taken on so far.

I'd like to say a huge thank you to Lois of Living Simply Free and Argentum Vulgaris (AV) of Eco Crap for keeping CTWW alive in my absence. Lois got busy and shared environmental good news each week. AV came up with interesting and unique challenges for his readers. If you haven't visited these Eco-Super Stars, please drop by and check out their blogs ... they have a lot of great things to say!

I'd also like to thank all of of the people who continued to tweet about CTWW ... I so appreciate your efforts!

We're going to jump right into a challenge this week. Next week I'll be back to publishing your comments, articles, tweets, etc.

Do you believe that you have the right to know what's in your food? I certainly do! The food industry is concerned that "we the people" are insisting on transparency ... and that concerns them. So they are proposing legislation which would make it impossible for consumers to know exactly what they are eating.

Here's your challenge:


Please visit Organic Consumers Association and read "Tell the FDA: No Watered-Down, Voluntary Federal GMO Labeling Rules!". For additional information on this topic, scroll to the bottom of the page for links. You can also visit this PAGE for recent articles. Read through the information to lean about the GMO issue.

THEN ...

If you live in the US and agree, sign the petition.

OR ...

If you don't live in the US, please find out what your country's policies are concerning GMO food and labeling. Are they accepted? If so, must they be labeled? If they aren't accepted in your country, are there any other food health concerns which you are facing?

This challenge gives us an opportunity to learn and to act. Are you up for the task? I know that you are!
