Ben & Jerry's Free Cone Day, Tuesday, April 29th

Ben_and_jerrys_free_cone_day Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Stores are offering free ice cream between the hours of noon and 8:00 pm on Tuesday, April 29th. Reason being is Ben and Jerry need your help to make a political statement. Ben and Jerry's label their ice cream as free of recombinant bovine growth hormones or rBGH/rBST. In other words, they don't add dangerous chemicals to their ice cream and they are proud of it.

However, Monsanto, the giant chemical company who manufactures rBST and other deadly chemicals are trying to ban the labeling of milk as hormone-free. Monsanto claims these labels are unfair because they imply hormone-free milk is safer than milk laden with the chemicals they manufacture. I don't know about you, but I'd prefer to eat pure ice cream and dairy products over products loaded with chemicals and hormones.

If you believe that you should have the right to know what chemicals are added to your ice cream and want to protect your consumer rights, it's time to join the crusade. Doing so, will earn you a free cone and let your voice be heard!

All you have to do to get your hormone-free cone from Ben and Jerry's is visit Citizens for Health website to download and sign the Ben & Jerry's thank you letter. Then take the letter to the nearest scoop shop to claim your free cone and your right to hormone-free ice cream.
