- Messages from the Chief Executive Officer
This past month many of you helped Down to Earth join with the Hawaii Citizens for Food Choice to obtain over 4,000 signatures petitioning the state legislature to hear two bills related to genetic engineering (GE), also known as GMOs—genetically modified organisms. We are deeply grateful for your support.
SB3232 would have required labeling for all GE whole foods sold in Hawaii (fruits and vegetables in their raw or natural state), and SB3233 would have compelled companies to reveal the location of test plots and production of GE crops.
