Go to Organic Consumers Association to sign and send this letter:

Subject: I'm joining the Right to Know boycott! Label GMOs!

I refuse to purchase any of my favorite brands owned by parent companies that contributed to the $46 million that helped defeat Prop 37, the California Right to Know GMO Labeling initiative

If any of these brands want to regain my trust and get off the nationwide boycott list, they will have to do two things:

  1. Speak out publicly in favor of state efforts to label genetically engineered food.
  2. Contribute as much money to Label-It Washington's Initiative 522 campaign as their brand's parent corporation donated to the No on 37 campaign in California.

I will also call these brands' customer hotlines, and post messages to their facebook pages, demanding that they support my right to know, or lose me permanently as a customer.

These companies make billions of dollars selling organic and "natural" brands, yet they spent millions to defeat Prop 37. Here's a list of the 10 companies I am boycotting, and their organic and "natural" brands:

• PepsiCo (Donated $2.5M): Naked Juice, Tostito’s Organic, Tropicana Organic
• Kraft (Donated $2M): Boca Burgers and Back to Nature
• Safeway (Member of Grocery Manufacturers Association, which donated $2M):“O” Organics
• Coca-Cola (Donated $1.7M): Honest Tea, Odwalla

• Con-Agra (Donated $1.2M): Orville Redenbacher’s Organic, Hunt’s Organic, Lightlife, Alexia
