Yes on Washington State’s I-522!




Since 1987, Mountain Rose Herbs has been known for our commitment to pesticide-free, non-genetically modified, organic plants. As we have grown over the years, we continue to seek out the highest quality organic or wild harvested products for our customers. We are proud to stand behind our principles of transparency, honesty, and organic agriculture. We recognize that we are stewards of the land and it is our responsibility to protect the health of our soils which sustain plant and animal communities.

It is the right of every person to know what they are putting into their bodies. That is why Mountain Rose Herbs supports Washington state’s GMO labeling ballot initiative I-522.

In just two months, Washington voters will decide the fate of GMO labeling which will have an impact on labeling in all 50 states. Polling shows that the majority of voters want common sense labeling passed. 64 countries around the world already require labeling of GM foods.

It’s time for us to get onboard.

Please consider getting involved and stand up to mega-corporations and special interest groups!

Join us in supporting the Yes on 522 campaign and the Organic Consumers Association.
