Save Michelle Obama's garden

1 post in this topic

We recently learned that the chemical industry is angry at First Lady Michelle Obama for NOT spraying toxic chemicals on her family's garden. We were dumbfounded by this, and so were our friends at CREDO. This is all part of a campaign started by the chemical industry to convince America that we need chemicals to grow food. CREDO has been working hard to show support for the First Lady and tell the chemical companies to back off. Show you support by signing their petition.

The pesticide peddlers are not happy with Michelle Obama.

The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) represents chemical companies that produce pesticides, and they are angry that - wait for it - Michelle Obama isn't using chemicals in her organic garden at the White House.

We are not making this up.

Since Saturday, over 50,000 people have joined our campaign against the pesticide company lobbyists attacking the Michelle Obama's organic garden. Help us get to 75,000! Join the fight against pesticide company lobbyists by clicking here: http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/wh_garden/?rc=tm

In an email MACA sent to its supporters, a spokesman wrote, "While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made [us] shudder." [1] MACA went on to publish a letter it had sent to the First Lady asking her to consider using chemicals - or what they call "crop protection products" - in her garden.

Michelle Obama has done America a great service by publicizing the importance of nutritious food for kids (she's growing the garden in partnership with a local elementary school class) as well as locally grown produce as an important, environmentally sustainable food source.

MACA's letter is part of a larger propaganda effort to convince people that chemicals are a necessary part of produce growth - when we know that's not true.

Click here to tell the MACA board that we support Michelle Obama's organic garden, and we'll thank them to keep their propaganda out of it: http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/wh_garden/?rc=tm

Please, take action and then tell your friends. And thank you for working to build a more organic world.
