Lastly, ask your local stores to carry Non-GMO verified products:
Can't find Non-GMO Verified products in your local store? Let them know that you would buy them if they carried them. The Non-GMO Project was started in Berkeley, CA in 2003 at a natural food store who responded to letters from customers who were concerned about a GM soy lecithin that the store was carrying. Since then, the movement has grown immensely and will continue to grow with the support of customers like you!
Using this list of Verified Non-GMO products, you can request them at your local market!
Until GMO labeling happens, it is up to you to eat the way YOU want.
