Tell Coke to Kiss Monsanto Goodbye!

What do Monsanto and Coke have in common? They’ve both spent millions of dollars to keep you in the dark about the foods you buy.

In the past 2 years, executives at Coca-Cola have stood with Monsanto against the American public by donating more than $3.2 million to defeat GMO labeling ballot initiatives Prop 37 in California and I-522 in Washington State.

Last year alone, Coke secretly funneled more than $1.5 million dollars through the a secret slush fund in order to kill the I-522 initiative in Washington that would have required GMO labeling.

It’s time for consumers to put their money where their mouth is and join the Coke Boycott.

While you may not drink Coke or any of their popular sugary soda drinks, the company owns many brands that you might buy, including Honest Tea, Honest Kids, Zico Coconut Water, Odwalla, Powerade, Peace Tea, Vitamin Water and Simply Orange.

Tell Coke to dump Monsanto and stop spending millions of dollars to kill GMO labeling campaigns in America!   Tell Coke to Kiss Monsanto Goodbye!

Stand up for Democracy and GMO labeling: Take a moment to tell executives at Coca-Cola why you won't be buying Coke products ever again and ask Coke to end their anti-GMO labeling campaigns once and for all!

Dear Muhtar Kent, CEO, The Coca-Cola Company

I believe that labeling of genetically engineered foods is a basic democratic right and that corporations that stand in American's way of knowing what's in our food and the food that I feed my family are violating this basic right. Today I’m joining a nationwide boycott of all Coca-Cola products until you stop funding campaigns to defeat our right to know what's in our food and support mandatory GMO labeling.

In the past 2 years, Coca-Cola executives have chosen to side with biotech seed and chemical companies like Monsanto over the American public by donating more than $3.2 million to defeat GMO labeling ballot initiatives in California and Washington State.

I am urging your company to stop contributing money to campaigns against the labeling of GMOs. You offer a broad range of brands, and you say that your company supports consumer choice. Please stop trying to keep us in the dark about GMOs, and issue a public statement that Coca-Cola will no longer contribute to anti-labeling efforts.

Sincerely,

[Your name]
