We know that Republicans absolutely do not want Vermont’s bill to go into effect and are still trying to push the DARK Act through the Senate. What is making more news as of late is that Senator Debbie Stabenow, an influential Democrat from Michigan who has taken $500,000 in donations from Monsanto, Dow, and Coca-Cola, wants the DARK Act to pass as well.

And this news is very troubling, to say the least.   Read more »

When people get into a debate about whether organic food is worth it or not, the first issue that always comes up is price.

While organic can cost a little more, there are numerous ways to make it less expensive.

Yet, what is often missing in this discussion is how organic is so much better for the planet.
