When factory farms spread waste on frozen and snow-covered soil, it increases the risk of polluting nearby water supplies because frozen ground can't absorb waste.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently released the new rules for GMO labeling guidelines that companies have to comply with by 2020. The Coca-Cola Company is not likely going to use a clear text or a symbol label on its products' packaging to indicate that the product contains GMOs. Instead, you will likely see only a QR code (a square symbol that resembles a bar code) on the packaging that will require you to use your smartphone to interpret.
Tell Coca-Cola to label GMO products where everyone can easily find them: right on the package!
It's hard to believe that there were once an estimated 4.5 million Monarchs that spent their winters on the west coast. Now only 28,249 of these western Monarchs remain as glyphosate-based pesticides like Monsanto's Roundup have decimated the Monarch caterpillar's only host plant, milkweed.
Tell your Congressional Rep to make an investment in restoring the milkweed that Monarch butterflies need to survive!
