So I guess Gerber is will now be on the list of products I won't buy. Nestle, known for its human rights violations
and unfair business practices, now adds Gerber to its list of brand names. This purchases now makes Nestle the largest supplier of baby foods in the world. The acquisition is of course being applauded by mammon worshipers
but is met with despair by human rights groups and mothering advocates.
Just one more reason to go organic and make baby food from scratch. You know you aren't feeding your baby toxins and sugars and you aren't supporting trafficking of child slave labors. Now I just need to care more about living morally than the ease of being lazy."When we become dependent on unsustainable and oppressive structures for our daily bread, not only do we make a mockery of the Lord's Prayer, but we have become docile subjects of the empire rather than free citizens of the kingdom." - Brian Walsh and Sylvia Keesmaat, Colossians Remixed
