Make A Difference

Ona Mae Easter 2014I think just about everyone can agree these days that there are serious environmental concerns for our planet and our population. As of today I’ve added a permanent page (Make a Difference) to this website as a place for solution-oriented posts. I’m not really a political person, but I am a grand mother.

At the top of my list is my concern about GMO plants. Not just because they aren’t good for us to eat, but because genetically modified plants are now killing the pollinators — bees and butterflies — that visit them. If our honey bees all die, the human race would last only four years. FOUR YEARS! The little child pictured here is my beautiful, smart, lively grand daughter, Ona Mae, who deserves to live the full, abundant life she came to the planet to have. So I really care about the bees.

To stop the killing, Monsanto Corporation must be stopped. Not only do they provide modified seeds that provide no nourishment to bees, but this monster corporation produces a popular weed killer called Round Up, which is soaking into the ground and poisoning our water supply. Gardeners are still blithely spraying it on their weeds, not realizing what they are doing. Round Up also contains a poison that kills pollinators.

Not only that, but modified food is now everywhere. We really don’t know yet what the full effect will be on human health, but if the bees are any indicator, it won’t be good. On the Make a Difference page is a list of companies that do business with Monsanto. Genetically modified food ingredients are now in the products offered by these companies. By shopping carefully, you can avoid these products whenever possible and perhaps loosen the stranglehold Monsanto has on our food supply. You can also consider growing your own foods, (making sure you start with heritage seeds,) or shop local produce markets for organic, fresh foods, eggs and meats. You can also support efforts to make GMO labeling mandatory.

Make a difference. Shop with your conscience and with the intention of doing no harm. Email these companies and let them know you no longer buy their products and why. Thank you for caring. Ona Mae thanks you too.

Have a great week!
