Coca-Cola contributed more than $1.5 million to oppose GMO labeling, while urging consumers to buy their healthier drink alternatives.
The public just learned that in 2013, Coca-Cola secretly funneled more than $1.5 million dollars through a business association in order to block an initiative in Washington State that would have required the labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on food products.

In addition to its soft drinks, the company owns many brands marketed as healthier alternatives, including Honest Tea, Powerade, Odwalla, Vitamin Water and Simply Orange. 
According to Bloomberg News, these brands played an essential role in Coca-Cola's recent 13% profit increase.

We have a unique opportunity to boycott the brands Coca-Cola markets as healthier alternatives, until the company pledges to cease any and all financial contributions to campaigns that fight the labeling of GMOs.
