Labeling means from seed to shelf food with this label meets rigorous standards that avoid GMO...

This label means that products are grown with the same standards as organic products, but they are not grown on farms certified by the National Organic Program of the USDA...

This certified label means animals are fed only grass and are able to forage during growing season...

This certified label means that animals are to behave naturally and are in a state of well being. In other words they are not in a cage all day...

About the author

The founder of EDL personally knows how far help can go. In the middle of law school, 2010, he suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury. He had to relearn how to do the most basic activities like walking or talking. With self determination and help from therapy and the department of assistive and rehabilitative services (DARS), he graduated law school and created this nonprofit. Without help, he firmly believes things would have turned out much different. That is why EDL wants to help. We know firsthand how much of a difference it makes.
