Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – November 2014

  With just over 6,500 votes currently separating the “yes” and “no” sides, the Oregon GMO-labeling measure is currently too close to call. There is still hope that the pro-labeling side can win, and Oregon’s Right to Know campaign will not concede the race until all the votes have been counted (not until around November …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – October 2014

  Election day is about a month away – on November 4, voters in Oregon and Colorado will have a chance to decide whether Genetically Engineered (GE) foods, those made with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), should be labeled. The Oregon Right to Know campaign is our primary focus this year, and, as with the Washington …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – September 2014

This year we decided that we would step up our activism on the animal advocacy front, teaming up with Compassion Over Killing, The Humane League and The Humane Society of the United States — organizations that are doing tremendous work in this area.

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – August 2014

  My grandfather’s message of “All-One!” is, at its core, a call for healing a fractured world. Emanuel Bronner lived in the shadow of the holocaust, at a time when global nuclear annihilation seemed imminent. For him, the need to realize our transcendent unity across religious and ethnic divides was urgent: humanity had to heal …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – July 2014

When my family teamed up with our Sri Lankan partners back in 2005 to form Serendipol, our first “sister company,” we had little notion that the concept would grow to become a formidable force in the world of fair trade & organic sourcing. At the time, we were supporting projects in the aftermath of the …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – June 2014

Our family has been fighting for the recommercialization of industrial hemp farming in the U.S. for the last 15 years, and it’s amazing to see how long drug war hystseria has kept a non-drug agricultural crop controlled as a Schedule I drug. However, massive breakthroughs occurred in Washington and Colorado, where citizens voted to legalize …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – May 2014

Payment of fair prices and wages for farmers and farmworkers. The refusal to exploit labor. The support for local, democratic and transparent organization of workers and community investment. The insistence on safe working conditions and a healthy working environment. These are some of the founding principles around which the Fair Trade movement was built, and …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – April 2014

  With the popularization of Earth Day celebrations in recent years, it is easy to forget that the holiday has radical underpinnings. Those early Earth Day actions, held around the country in 1970, were teach-ins and peaceful demonstrations intended to precipitate environmental policy reforms. Acting within our own sphere of influence, Dr. Bronner’s is committed …

Dr. Bronner’s “All-One!” News – March 2014

At Dr. Bronner’s we have always been closely connected to the movement of “Do-It-Yourselfers” and Natural Homemakers. While we spend a lot of time fighting for GMO labeling, organic integrity and cannabis reform, we also feel it is important to support the grassroots movement that is transforming our environment and food supply, one garden and …
