This past weekend I was at Green Festival NYC and had a fantastic time.

While these shows are not nearly as big as a Natural Products Expo West or Natural Products Expo East, they have definitely been gaining traction over the last few years.

More and more nationally-known organic brands are purchasing booths, and the overall number of booths is expanding as well.

What I particularly like about these shows is that they are geared toward the consumer and showcase a wide variety of eco-friendly products. Furthermore, they have fantastic seminars with some very interesting speakers. Read More »

Because they know how critical it is that GMO-labeling gets approved in California, and they wanted to show their support and be with other people who care so deeply about this issue. Read More »

Join Me in NYC for a GMO-Labeling Fundraiser to Benefit Proposition 37

Written by Max Goldberg on September 19, 2012. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

As many of us know already, citizens in California will be voting in November on whether genetically-modified food (GMOs) should be labeled or not – Proposition 37.

Even though this is a vote in California, the implications for the rest of the country are enormous.

If California passes mandatory GMO-labeling, it will encourage other states to do the same and consumers throughout the country will finally know what is in their food. Read More »
