Action Alert: stop the GM apple

Tell your Grocery Store to Ban the GM Apple

Have you heard about the genetically modified (GM) “non-browning” apple? It could be approved in Canada and the U.S. this year!  69% of Canadians don’t want the GM apple approved! Are you one of them?

If you don’t want to eat GM apples, now is the time to take action!

Tell your grocery store to commit not to sell the GM apple:
1. Visit your local grocery store and ask the manager to commit never to stock the GM apple.
2. Write to the head office of your grocery store and ask them to commit to keep GM apples out of the produce section.
These two actions will be very influential. The consumer is always right! That’s you!

Take action before March 30.
