The food companies, including Stonyfield Organic, One Degree Organic Foods, Ben & Jerry's, Grandy Oats Real Granolas, PCC Community Markets, Patagonia Provisions, Lundberg Family Farms, MegaFood, Mom's Organic Market, and Clif Bar, will deliver a petition to the EPA that explains that the continued use of glyphosate as a pre-harvest drying agent is contaminating America's food supply with a known cancer-causing chemical. [The EPA has known this for a long time, so the purpose of the march is to create publicity that will create public pressure to force the agency to do what it is supposed to do.] -GEG
Mark your calendars for May 23. For this is the day that a coalition of environmentally-conscious, human health-focused, integrity-driven American food companies is planning to march on Washington, D.C., to demand that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally take action to stop the pre-harvest spraying of food crops with Monsanto's toxic glyphosate herbicide.
