October is Non-GMO Month. GMOs are all around us, in our food and in products we use, and can pose a danger to our health and our environment. Launched in 2010, Non-GMO Month is the Non-GMO Project‘s largest outreach campaign.
Non-GMO Month offers the opportunity to spread awareness about the possible dangers of GMOs in our the food we eat and the products we use on a daily basis.
GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are living organisms whose genes have been modified in a laboratory through genetic engineering. The dangers and side effects of many GMOs are unknown, although many developed nations have either put tight restrictions on the use of GMOs or banned them all together.
Currently, many of our products are Non-GMO Verified and we are consistently working to ensure that ingredients we use are GMO-free.
