Wal-Mart: Full Of (Organic!) Crap

So now that going organic is the cool new thing to do, Wal-Mart is trying to get a little piece of the action. Since Wal-Mart is about as organic as Heidi Montag’s rack, they have been doing all sorts of  dastardly things to try to bypass the hard-earned organic guidelines. Some of these sneaky tricks include placing large “Organic” signs over areas where not all products are organic, and trying to bypass the actual guidelines, most likely so that they can sell (buy) “organic” items cheaper. Some of the products being mislabeled include produce, milk, sugar, rice milk, soy milk and yogurt. The Cornucopia Institute, an organization supporting the family-scale farming community that act as the pioneers of organic justice, brought complaints of organic violations to the USDA after Wal-Mart repeatedly ignored their notifications.  If Wal-Mart were to succeed in side-stepping USDA guidelines, then other stores would begin to as well, and the organic food industry would end up playing a game of one step forward, two steps back. Boo, Wal-Mart, can’t you see we’re trying to start a movement? Bad form.
