The threat of releasing GMO salmon into the wild has helped many American consumers and businesses realize the serious health dangers that we are facing today.
Many big businesses are greening up to help preserve the safety of our planet, and these are the companies that deserve our support.
Money talks, so take your money out of the pockets of the big corps supporting GMOs and harmful products, and spend your money buying eco-friendly products and supporting green businesses and eco-friendly companies.
Here are some companies doing their part for the betterment of both the planet and the consumer:
