Month: May 2015
Freya and Eva, 2 of the founding members of Mums Say No to GMOs joined a fabulous group of people who had come from all over the country to voice their concerns over the rising threat of the UK allowing GMOs to be farmed in the UK very soon. We spoke about our first call to action which will be a letter to supermarkets urging them to voluntarily label meat, dairy and eggs where the animals have been fed on a full or partial genetically modified diet so that we as consumers can choose to buy these foods or not.
Mums Say No campaigners met today to discuss a plan of action for the coming months. The first step is to write to supermarkets asking them to label produce from animals fed with GM feed. We aim to get 50,000 signatures to make supermarkets and MPs sit up and take notice.
