Birds Nest Foundation joins Organic-Friendly Brands on a National Social Media “March” Against GMOs
Starting May 1st, the #1MilNonGMO Social Media March will attempt to garner 1 million social media impressions to raise awareness about the negative impacts of GMOs
ATLANTA – May 1, 2015 – National organic and all-natural food and wellness brands have banded together to raise awareness about GMOs and their negative effects on health and the environment. These national brands, led by Little Me Tea, will host a Social Media “March” across the major social media outlets with the goal of creating 1 million online impressions in the month of May. The campaign will raise awareness about the dangers of GMOs, the importance of honest labeling, and how to become a more informed consumer. Using the hashtag, #1MilNonGMO, these companies will start the online conversation and encourage others to join in by sharing, posting, and commenting across Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Spearheading the Social Media March is Little Me Tea, the healthy tea and juice box for kids, a wholesome and nutritious, USDA Organic beverage verified by the Non-GMO Project. Mom creator and entrepreneur, Melinda Hicks, rallied the support of like-minded businesses that strive to enhance the health and wellness of their customers through thoughtful ingredient selection. Participating brands include: Bitsy’s Brainfood, Sally B’s Skin Yummies, Marigold Foods, Sow True Seed, Bare Belly Organics, Yummy Spoonfuls, Slush Naturals, Harvest Soul Chewable Juices, and Fig & Flower. Rounding out initial support for the March is the New York-based non-profit, Birds Nest Foundation, and nationally recognized environmental non-profit, Captain Planet Foundation.
Birds Nest Foundation's CEO and activist Avis Richards said “GMO's potential impact is enormous, the health of future generations are threatened.”ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ
The brands determined that a Social Media March had the greatest capacity to reach a broad, connected audience eager for more information on the controversial issue of GMOs. The March would also have a lasting effect as pins, tweets, and blog posts are archived on the Internet.
The Social Media March will start on May 1, 2015 when the hashtag, #1MilNonGMO, will be used on daily Facebook posts, Tweets, Pins, and Instagram posts. The goal is to reach 1 million social impressions by May 31, 2015. Critical to the campaign’s success is the sharing, reposting, and commenting of content that contains the #1MilNonGMO hashtag.
