ANOTHER CALL TO BOYCOTT WAL-MART
Here, there and everywhere…Even farmers are boycotting now.
From the Organic Consumers Association:
Wal-Mart’s entry into the organic food market has, as was predicted, lowered standards for these products by demanding low prices from suppliers and sourcing supplies from factory farms and overseas suppliers.
Many believe that the industrialization of organics threatens the ability of consumers to be certain that products were raised and produced according to true organic standards.
Wal-Mart has failed to respond to requests by consumer organizations that they stop selling Horizon and Aurora Organic milk, which comes from intensive confinement factory farm dairies, and stop importing cheap and possibly suspect organic foods from China and Brazil.
Wal-Mart has also been accused of posting signs in its stores that mislead consumers into believing non-organic items are actually organic.
