Integrative Nutrition Donates $117,000 in Support of GMO Labeling
We are thrilled to announce that with your help, Integrative Nutrition has succeeded in donating $117,000 to four organizations that share our mission to fight for GMO labeling!
People have the right to know what’s in their food and make informed decisions about what they eat. While genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are banned in many countries around the world, the United States doesn’t even require labeling of genetically modified foods. Foods that contain GMOs are ubiquitous on grocery store shelves, and many people unknowingly consume them every day.
We at Integrative Nutrition are committed to supporting efforts to require GMO labeling, and we can make an even bigger impact when we join forces with like-minded organizations that are also advocating for consumer rights.
That’s why last month we pledged to donate $100 to organizations that fight for GMO labeling for every person who enrolled in the Health Coach Training Program. With an enrollment of 1,170 students, Integrative Nutrition has donated $117,000 to the following organizations:
- The Non-GMO Project is committed to preserving and building the non-GMO food supply, educating consumers, and providing verified non-GMO choices.
- The Institute for Responsible Technology educates the public about the risks and impact of GM foods and crops on health, the environment, the economy, and agriculture.
- LabelGMOs is the grassroots group that rallied behind Proposition 37 in California, a defeated initiative that sought to empower consumers and require the labeling of GMOs.
- The Organic Consumers Association campaigns for issues relating to food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children’s health, and environmental sustainability.
Just as we rallied in support of GMO labeling last month, we will continue to stay involved in this cause until important legislation is passed here in the United States. Together, with the passion and commitment of the entire IIN community, we can create a ripple effect that will truly change the world!
