It should be something that you’ll appreciate on a daily basis. We have to find the foods that we enjoy and make that a part of our routine permanently in order to sustain something that works well.
After starting her career in corporation, she left it to start her own vegan. The corporate business “was not making me happy. I did not want to be a part of the corporate world.

Certifying non-GMO Products
It is the goal with Carolina Lavayen veganizing businesses in the Florida area that she can work with promoting GMO Free Florida. It is a non-profit organizations with the same goal of reducing chemical exposure in the Florida food supply. GMO-Free Florida is working on banning glyphosate. They have already received a win on labeling GMOs, which is the first step.
GMOs were created by Monsanto to modify food to be able to resist the same herbicides, fertilizers, and pesticides that they themselves sell. Monsanto has now been purchased and changed their name to Bayer. Bayer is over one hundred years old. Known as a company that is supplying medicine. Ironically, they bought out a fertilizer and herbicide chemical company that is fighting lawsuits about causing cancer.
Glyphosate was created by Monsanto and is considered the enemy. This chemical is part of Roundup, the main herbicide with use all over the country and all over the world to keep bugs from eating our food supply. Glyphosate was recently proven in court to be cancerous. So, now that we have this deeper understanding we can present to our local government offices and say, “Look this is cancerous.” They are spraying it our schools. They are spraying it in our public parks and all these public areas and our children are walking on these cancerous chemicals and we’re not okay with this.
You know, most people are not aware and that’s why we’re here at these kind of events to raise awareness about these kinds of situations and encourage people to also speak out about it and go to their local government offices and say, “We know that this is going on and we’re not okay with it and we need to stop this.”
