Today I went to the Earth Fair in Balboa park and discovered a bunch of neat new organizations.
The Non-GMO Project is a non-profit collaboration of manufacturers, retailers, processors, distributors, farmers, seed breeders and consumers.
Our shared belief is that everyone deserves an informed choice about whether or not to consume genetically modified products, and our common mission is to ensure the sustained availability of non-GMO options.
San Diego Friends of Fair Trade:
We aim to increase the understanding and use of Fair Trade throughout San Diego through education, policy change, and a shift in economic paradigm.
Heifer International: (Okay, not exactly vegetarian, but poor people have to eat too.)
This organization raises money to donate cows, goats, bees, etc. to poor people so they have a source of eggs, milk, etc to consume/sell and help get them out of extreme poverty.
