For years people have asked how do we know we are getting safe food, no artificial sweeteners, no genetic engineering, etc., etc. It's like Dr. H. J. Roberts says, "its hard to avoid aspartame and when in doubt throw it out."
I seldom get behind anything because first I always want to be unbiased. A sweetener was made because of me, Just Like Sugar, http://www.justlikesugarin.com, which is all food and no chemicals and has gotten many awards. Dr. Russell Blaylock has endorsed it as "finally a safe sweetener" and that was after it was analyzed. However, I have no financial association with it. There is a movie about it on their web site. I'm just delighted there is somebody out here providing a safe sweetener and safe other products.
As to Green Polka Dot Box, James Turner, Atty is involved, the heroic DC attorney who tried to prevent the approval of aspartame and is concerned about a safe food supply, the original Nader Raider. So I am confidant this is a wonderful thing and we don't have to worry because Jim is involved.
I hope all of you have now seen the movie Sweet Misery: A Poisoned World, firstname.lastname@example.org Indeed, our food supply is poisoned. So I'm so happy to let people know about this, and where we can be guaranteed safe and wholesome food. It's like going back to the days of old. I'm just so delighted to pass this letter on to you for further information. It's been a long time coming and a long time needed.
I always said, "If you don't buy it, they can't sell it"! So here is one solution to the problem. Congratulations Jim, for a job well done!

New Way to Buy Organic non-GMO Foods – online
Something significant is happening in the organic foods industry: There's a new player on the block, and its name is Green PolkaDot Box. It's a new online organic store that's launching in just a few weeks, and it has the potential to save organic and non-GMO consumers thousands of dollars a year on foods and health products.
In this article, I'll share with you how to join Green PolkaDot Box (it's free) and start saving money from the very first day it launches (in early October).
What's especially interesting about this, by the way, is that the launch of Green PolkaDot Box is being supported by a five of most well-recognized organizations in the world of organic and non-GMO food: Mission Possible World Health International, Citizen’s for Health, NaturalNews, Organic Consumers Association and The Institute for Responsible Technology (Jeffrey Smith's Stop GMO’s group). All five of us have decided to lend our support to this startup for five reasons:
Reason #1) We all believe that organic and healthy foods currently cost too much when purchased at retail food stores. We want to support an option, Green PolkaDot Box which makes these health-enhancing foods more affordable. Of course, we also support local health food stores, but many people live in organic food deserts where organic produce is virtually impossible to come by (most of the Midwest, for example).
Reason #2) We want to support retailers that promote non-GMO foods! Whole Foods is still working to ferret out the GMOs in its inventory, and someone needs to take a leadership role in biting the bullet and blazing the non-GMO trail for the future of healthy product retailing. So we're getting behind a company that has agreed to eliminate all foods from its inventory that are not GMO certified or in transition to GMO certification. This is a huge deal, and Green PolkaDot Box is the first to do this that I'm aware of.
Reason #3) We believe in creating more distribution opportunities for small organic product companies which have wonderful products that need to be better represented in the marketplace. As part of their operations, Green PolkaDot Box plans to bring in a wide array of products from small, under-publicized companies whose products deserve more mainstream distribution. Unlike many food retail chains, GPDB does not charge "marketing fees" to carry products from companies.
Reason #4) Green PolkaDot Box offers special shopping sections for all kinds of health-conscious shoppers: Gluten-free, low-glycemic (diabetes), low-sodium, corn-free, soy-free and a whole lot more. It's very easy to find the foods that suit your dietary preferences.
Reason #5) Even as you're saving money -- up to 60% off retail price on some items -- your purchase results in a small affiliate commission to Mission Possible, Citizen’s for Health, NaturalNews, IRT or the Organic Consumers Association. These affiliate commissions help us all fund our grassroots operations to keep bringing you outstanding documentary films, videos, articles, special reports and many other forms of education and free speech that spread the word about food choice, organics and non GMOs. We are on the front lines battling Monsanto's GMO agenda, the FDA, destructive "food safety" legislation, informing consumers about the dangers of aspartame in our food, dangerous vaccine laws and much more, and of course we are always working hard to get more done with less money.
Our combined goal at Mission Possible, Citizen’s for Health, NaturalNews, OCA and IRT is to turn more people on to affordable organic and non-GMO foods and health-related products. Ultimately, we all hope to outlaw GMOs entirely, and we pledge to use the resources available to us in pursuit of that goal. Your shopping through Green PolkaDot Box can help us achieve that goal -- even while it saves you money on healthy foods and products!
Five key benefits offered by Green PolkaDot Box
With Green PolkaDot Box, you will:
A buying club that saves you money every time you shop
Green Polka Dot Box is a buying club, much like Costco or Sam's Club. It is NOT network marketing or MLM. It offers an affiliate commission on sales for people you recommend, just like Amazon.com does for books (see below).
Memberships are normally $50 a year, but if you watch the introductory video at the link below, you can get a FREE membership before the actual launch day, which is currently scheduled for early October (but may be delayed, as it's not a fixed launch date yet).
If you wish to lower the cost of your organic foods, then you may choose a "Reward Membership" that earns you up to an additional 5% discount on all your food purchases, plus up to 10% rewards on the purchases of others you introduce to Green PolkaDot Box. The rewards points can be used like cash in the Green PolkaDot Box store, to buy organic and non-GMO foods and other health-related products (all offered at remarkable discounts).
Again, this is not multi-level or network marketing. You only earn reward points (affiliate points, essentially) on the purchases of those you directly introduce. You do not earn points on the people they introduce, or anything like that. It's a straight affiliate system, just like Amazon.com's affiliate program.

Why there will be a waiting list
An important note: Because all three organizations are supporting the launch of this new online retailer (Mission Possible, Citizen’s for Health, NaturalNews, OCA and IRT), there will be a waiting list for when you can actually start shopping there. GPDB is committed to making sure they can serve all their members in a timely and professional manner once they launch, so they will only activate the first 2500 members (or so) on launch day. Once the orders from those members are filled, they will activate another 500 members who have been waiting in the queue.
This will continue until all the members are fully activated. In this way, GPDB makes sure it never gets overwhelmed with too many orders that it can't fulfill (this is a common problem with companies that we recommend here at Mission Possible because of our broad reach, so GPDB is using this process to make sure its service and order fulfillment remains streamlined and never gets backlogged).
That's why I you may want to reserve your place in line right now. There's NO FEE to become a member and reserve your place in line. Just watch this video to get a free membership right now and then wait for your activation to start saving up to 60% off organic foods and health products: http://www.greenpolkadotbox.com/missionpossible
I want to be clear here that not all products are priced at 60% off, of course. Most products will be found at 20% - 30% below typical health food store prices. Some will be available at 40% - 50%, and a few will even be found at 60%. Overall, the savings on your organic and non-GMO grocery bill will add up to be considerable! This is especially true given that there is FREE shipping on all orders over $150 (continental USA only, with discounted Fedex shipping to Hawaii and Alaska).
Why Mission Possible is not emphasizing the "Trust Memberships"
When you watch the introductory video at the link above, you will also learn about the limited "Trust Memberships" at Green Polka Dot Box. As of right now, there are a few hundred of these still available, and this membership class will no longer be offered once GPDB launches.
"Trust Memberships" are high-level founding memberships that are being sold as a way for GPDB to raise funds from its members rather than turning to investment capital for its startup cash flow needs. This gives GPDB the funding it needs to acquire products, stock the warehouse and open for business in September.
It is important to note that if you choose to buy a Trust Membership, even though it offers many benefits (see below), it does mean that you're spending money up front that GPDB is using as investment money to purchase inventory and launch operations. As with any startup business, there is a risk that you may not get that money back if, for some reason, GPDB does not launch as anticipated.
You can avoid all that risk by simply signing up for the FREE membership at GPDB, in which case there is no risk to you whatsoever, because you're not spending any money up front. I personally believe the risk of GPDB not launching is very low, which is why I already purchased a Trust Membership myself, knowing that I'll get all that credit back on launch day (plus more). But in good conscience, because there is some risk involved in purchasing a Trust Membership, I cannot recommend anyone else buy this level of membership. You are free to do so, however, and the benefits of a Trust Membership are quite substantial:

Questions & Answers
Why should I join Green Polka Dot Box?
Primarily because it will save you money on purchasing organic foods and products. And right now, the sooner you get in line, the sooner your member account will be activated so that you can start shopping at GPDB. The longer you wait, the longer the line gets. Remember: Joining right now is FREE, so there's no reason not to reserve your place in line with a free membership: http://www.greenpolkadotbox.com/missionpossible
How does Green Polka Dot Box keep prices so low and still pay commissions?
GPDB does not have the typical brick-and-mortar overhead, and it spends zero dollars on marketing and advertising. Instead, it relies on key partners like Mission Possible to spread the word. So GPDB has only a fraction of the overhead of typical retailers, allowing it to share a small cut of each sale with its members while still saving members significant sums of money on their organic foods purchases. The business model is lean and structured to keep prices low.
Are all the products sold by Green Polka Dot Box non-GMO?
GPDB only carries products if they are 1) Certified non-GMO, or 2) In the process of achieving non-GMO certification. Before the official launch, you *might* see a few products in the shopping cart that still contain GMOs, but they are being removed before launch day. This entire process is being very closely watched by Jim Turner, Jeffrey Smith and Ronnie Cummins, too. They are helping make sure the products offered by GPDB are truly organic, truly non-GMO and very high quality products. Any non-qualifying products will be yanked out of the catalog.
Is Green Polka Dot Box available in Canada or outside the USA?
Not yet, although success in the U.S. will help support an expansion to other countries. But right now, the total focus of the company is on its U.S. launch.
Is Green Polka Dot Box a startup company?
Yes! It is new, right out of the (green polka dot) box. Because it's a startup, there is a risk that it may stumble out of the gate, or experience growth problems, or never launch at all, even. Obviously, I feel confident this company has a solid foundation from which to grow, but I've seen lots of startups never make it beyond even the first year, so I do want to be upfront and honest with Mission Possible readers and inform you of this commonsense disclaimer that GPDB is a "startup." I personally want to see GPDB become a success for lots of reasons, but most notably because I think there needs to be more competition in the organic retailing business in order to see prices come down. (The success of GPDB will even put downward price pressure on Whole Foods, I believe.)
Is Green Polka Dot Box a network marketing company?
No. GPDB is a buying club, much like Costco or Sam's Club (but focusing on organic, non-GMO foods and products). If you choose to become a Rewards Member, then GPDB offers a straight affiliate commission on members you introduce to the company, much like Amazon.com's affiliate program. Through this rewards program, you can earn points that you can spend like cash at the GPDB store. If you introduce enough others to the program, you can effectively get your own organic groceries for free (watch the video for full details).
When will Green Polka Dot Box be open for business?
Current plans are for the company to open for business in early October. Between now and then it will be running "test order" campaigns and acquiring product inventory in its warehouse and fulfillment center. Once it opens for business, it will "activate" memberships on a first-come, first-served basis. That's why reserving your place in line right now is such a great idea, especially since it's FREE to join.
What kinds of products will be available at Green Polka Dot Box?
All your favorite organic and non-GMO products will be represented there, including Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps, Bob's Red Mill, Barbara's Bakery and literally hundreds of other brands, covering food, personal care, household, pet care, dietary supplements and much more.
How does joining GPDB help Mission Possible?
Because Mission Possible is a founding trust member, if you join GPDB through our link, then every time you shop at GPDB, we will receive up to 10% of your total purchase as reward points. These rewards points can be converted to cash which Mission Possible will use to fund its multiple campaigns and efforts which include:
You can benefit from Green PolkaDot Box, too.
Remember, just as we earn 10% of your grocery purchases in rewards points, you can earn up to 10% of others you introduce to GPDB. (This is not multi-level, however. It doesn't go beyond one direct level. It's just a straight affiliate program.) By introducing a handful of people to GPDB, you can either reduce or even eliminate your own organic foods grocery bill.

I've already signed up myself, personally, under Mission Possible. Because I simply want to save money on buying organic! I also want to support good causes and honest businesses that are properly dealing with GMOs. Finally, I think Whole Foods needs some real competition. Every time I shop at Whole Foods, I wonder, "Why is everything so expensive here?" Even though I'm glad Whole Foods exists, in these difficult economic times, we all just flat-out need more honest competition.
Buying organic shouldn't break the bank! And Green PolkaDot Box promises to finally make organic, non-GMO shopping more affordable for us all.
And finally, with its free shipping on all orders over $150, GPDB can finally help make organic products available to all those Americans who live in organic food deserts where organics are very difficult to come by. GPDB can help make organics more readily available to those who don't live within driving distances of local health food stores.
Finally, I want to be clear that Mission Possible continues to support local health food stores, and we encourage you to visit your locally-owned health product retailers wherever possible. They need your support to stay in business!
Overall, I see GPDB boosting the success of the organic products industry and taking a leadership position on non-GMO foods. It will be very interesting to see how Whole Foods responds to this competitive challenge! Will they decide to remove all the GMOs from their own stores? Or honestly label them as GMOs?
Only time will tell...
In the mean time, sign up for Green PolkaDot Box where you can rest assured that all the GMOs are removed from the online shopping cart (or honestly labeled as "in transition" is that's the case). Watch the short presentation at:
