Inside the Business of Organics: Big Companies That Own Your Organic Brands

What do we do if we don’t want to support big food, but want organic food?

It’s great news that organic food is more readily available. But, I don’t want to support Coca-Cola, Campbell Soup, Kellogg or some of these other ginormous conglomerates that, among other things, oppose GMO labeling.

Beyond avoiding the products above, here are a few other ways we can buy organic and avoid these big food companies:

  • Support your local farmer’s market.
  • Sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. Click here to find one near you.
  • Find a food delivery service that deals in local/organic foods. Just google it.
  • Avoid processed foods and drinks!
  • Grow your own. But be sure to use heirloom seeds or a seed exchange. Many retail seeds and plants may contain GMOs or pesticides.

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Beauty and the Breast

“A first time documentary filmmaker offers a compelling insight into a devastating reality of breast cancer, as seen through the eyes of several female patients helping demystify the disease while painting poignant and often humorous intimate portraits of survival. The film depicts the process of learning and accepting the terrifying verdict, and details the complexities of every stage of this disease. All interviewed patients have different experiences living with mutilated bodies while still maintaining strength. This film is not only invaluable as a testament to human resilience but it also proves that it’s possible to blossom in the face of adversity. But as the fight continues, the wisdom and beauty within us can help us conquer the beast until we find the cure.”
