Just Label It Advocates GMO Labelling

Naturepedic has joined more than 600 companies and organizations in becoming a partner with Just Label It, promoting the right to know when there are Genetically Engineered (GE) ingredients in your food.

More than two-thirds of processed foods in the U.S. contain GE ingredients. GE ingredients come from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), plants or animals that contain artificially inserted genetic material from other species that simply couldn't happen in nature or through traditional breeding methods. Currently, there are no laws requiring labeling or disclosure of GE ingredients.

Just Label It advocates the labeling of GMOs and so do many, many others. GMO labeling has garnered support that is independent of political affiliation or gender, and more than 750,000 people have contacted the FDA on this issue.

Ready to take action? Sign an online petition asking the FDA to guarantee that GMOs are labeled. Visit http://justlabelit.org/take-action/ and add your voice in asking the FDA to protect your right to know.

The nine most common GMO crops are:

1. Corn

2. Soybeans

3. Canola

4. Cotton*

5. Sugar Beets

6. Alfalfa

7. Hawaiian Papaya

8. Zucchini

9. Yellow Crookneck Squash

Look for the GOTS logo for organic authenticity

*While cotton is one of the top three crops using GMOs, Naturepedic mattresses and accessories do not use GMO cotton. All Naturepedic mattresses are independently certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which expressly forbids the use of GMO cotton. If you would like to purchase clothing, textiles or mattresses made WITHOUT GMO cotton, look for the GOTS logo.
