Miracle-Gro Sues Small N.J. Organic Plant-Food Maker
So here’s the scoop:
Scott’s Miracle Grow…famous (59% of market share, $7 billion in global sales)
TerraCycle…not so famous (annual sales of $1.5 million dollars)
TerraCycle is an eco-friendly company that uses worm waste packaged into used plastic bottles as organic plant food. It’s a great idea, and the guy that started this (CEO Tom Szaky) company is only 25 years old. This company should be honored for its service to the environment…honestly!
So here comes the evil Corporate Giant that is making all sorts of bogus claims and has filed a law suit.
“They’re claiming that (the colors) yellow and green are theirs,” Tom added, “Miracle-Gro has sued us over advertising. I’ve never bought an ad.”
Miracle Grow also sued for falsely claiming that its organic products are better than synthetic ones like Miracle-Gro.
Ya know what this sounds like to me? This sounds like the same tactics that Monsanto Corporation was using against milk producers putting labels on their milk that said “no artificial hormones”.
It’s time for people to wake up and realize that there is no corporate responsibility. When will corporations be held accountable for their actions. Certainly not with government agencies like the EPA, FDA, and USDA. It will take we the people to create and force change in this country.
