OCA CAMPAIGN UPDATE:
OCA FILES SUIT FOR FALSE AND MISLEADING "ORGANIC" CERTIFICATION OF PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS
The plot has definitely thickened in OCA’s Coming Clean Campaign. As revealed in previous issues of Organic Bytes, a number of well known body care product companies were recently sued by Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps for misleadingly labeling or certifying their products as "Organic," even though many of their main ingredients are composed of conventional agricultural and petrochemical material, with no certified organic material. The French certifier Ecocert has been particularly outrageous in certifying such products as "Organic" and last month filed a pre-emptive lawsuit against the OCA, in a fruitless attempt to silence concerned organic consumers and farmers. OCA has filed a counter-suit against Ecocert and the brief can be read on-line at: OCA is a party with Dr. Bronner’s in the consolidated litigation going forward with all defendants. We appreciate any and all donations to help us win this crucial fight to preserve organic integrity in personal care.
