As the manufacturer of Agent Orange, DDT, PCPs and dioxin, Monsanto’s toxic legacy of harm to the environment and human health is without parallel. Now Monsanto owns patents on life and is genetically engineering the food that we eat. In the past 2 years alone, Monsanto has helped fund massive misinformation campaigns to the tune of $70 million to defeat GMO labeling.
Monsanto claims that GMOs and their weedkiller Roundup are perfectly safe. So why are they fighting GMO labeling in the U.S.? Unfortunately, if you have a retirement fund, 401K or mutual funds you could be profiting from Monsanto’s toxic products.
Tell your friends and family it’s time to take the Monsanto stock plunge and divest from Monsanto’s toxic products! Friends don’t let Friends invest in Monsanto.

Here are three ways to boycott the mutual funds that own Monsanto
1. Close your account(s).
2. Tell your advisor to sell your funds that own Monsanto stock and hold your money in either a money market or as cash.
3. Tell your advisor to sell your funds that own Monsanto stock and opt for funds that do not invest in Monsanto.
If your company has a 401K plan that you cannot opt out of, call your advisor and tell them you will only invest in funds without Monsanto.
