Take Action

The aim of Knowmore.org is to raise awareness of corporate abuse, and to serve as a catalyst for direct action against corporate power.

Ethical Consumerism is an important movement toward corporate reform, through which individuals recognize their own role in systems of oppression, and take personal steps toward resistance and  positive change.

However, the problem of unchecked corporate power is systemic and goes far beyond the scope of any single boycot or campaign.

Once you've seen enough of Knowmore's data and familiarized yourself with our Issues section, check out our Direct Action page to get involved!

  • In the US, Campbell Soup continues to market unlabeled GMO (Genetically Modified Food) products to children such as Goldfish crackers and Spaghetti-Os Source: True Food Now
  • Campbell Soup donated over $52,000 to defeat Oregon’s Measure 27, which would require the labeling of all GMO food products sold in that state. Source: Food Chemical News, November 4, 2002
  • U.S. consumer and environmental groups urged Campbell Soup Co. to stop using gene-spliced ingredients in its soups, breads, juices, and other products. Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, the Centre for Food Safety, and four other groups said they aimed to pressure companies to stop using bioengineered food. Campbells, which licensed the first genetically modified food -- the FlavrSavr tomato -- engineered for longer shelf life, is the first company targeted by the coalition. In Europe, Campbell sells little, if any, bioengineered food. Source: Reuters, July 20, 2000
