Ever wonder what all the hype over GMO’s is about? Why are they worrisome? And should you actively avoid them? Well here is our simplified take on them…A genetically modified organism, aka a GMO, is an organism whose genome has been modified through genetic engineering techniques, leaving it with DNA that would never occur naturally. These “genetic modifications” include DNA’s from bacteria, viruses or other plants and animals, and over 80% are conceived for herbicide tolerance.
So why worry about all this?
GMO’s are already proving to be harmful to our environment and society, not to mention their growing connection to all sorts of health risks. Their heightened tolerance to herbicides has led to a jump in toxic herbicide use as well as led to the emergence of “super bugs” and “super weeds” that require even more toxic chemicals to defeat them. These chemicals not only harm the environment but also those of us eating the suspect produce. Beyond this impact, GMO’s are a product of our modern technological world, and their impacts on our health are largely unknown. Studies have produced a growing body of evidence linking GMOs with health problems such as pre-cancerous cell growth and kidney and liver damage, among others. Over 80% of processed foods families buy, many of them snacks kids love such as cereals, cookies, crackers, and other snack bars, contain genetically modified ingredients. But, At This Bar Saves Lives we have taken extra steps to set ourselves apart by becoming Non-GMO Project verified, helping make it easier for you to find delicious, healthy and safe snacks, for you and your family, while also helping save lives around the world too! We like to call this a win-win.

Saving Lives In The Philippines

Since our first conversation about starting This Bar Saves Lives, our dream has always been to be able to help people when they need it most. Three years later, we’re finally in a position to do just that.

Last fall, catastrophic Typhoon Haiyan swept across the Philippines leaving millions of survivors without food, water & shelter. It was a tragedy that moved us deeply so we knew we had to help. In a big way.

When it comes to good music and good vibes, nothing quite compares to the incredible festival experience that is Coachella. It’s the weekend that so many anxiously await as they anticipate the thrill of seeing their favorite artists live and spending a euphoric time with friends in a utopian dreamland.

This year’s festival will provide an awesome opportunity to pair great music and great food for an even greater cause! For the first time in Coachella history, This Bar Saves Lives will be available at the Coachella’s Farmers’ Market tents both weekends! Nothing goes better with the sounds of Bastille and Beck than a bar that tastes great and gives back.

Be sure to check out the Coachella Farmers Market tents for This Bar, fresh fruit, organic coffee, and chance to help children in need!  

BONUS TIP: Take a picture of you at Coachella with a This Bar using the hashtag #CoachellaGivesBack, and we’ll send you a special gift! :)

Do you have a recipe idea involving a #thisbar? We’d love to hear it! Let us know in the comment section.

Whether you believe today is just another routine day, a day where all your efforts are dedicated for a special someone or a Hallmark holiday where the mass-produced heart-shaped cards and overabundance of candy makes Halloween look like a joke, we can all agree that the theme for today is LOVE. Today is a day when love takes the lead: we show our love to our friends, loved ones, partners, and neighbors, treat ourselves to a few extra chocolate kisses and even show generosity to those whom we would normally categorize as strangers. Love is definitely in the air…

If you are looking for something fun and creative to do with your sweetheart, why not make dessert together? Our bars are delicious on their own, but add a little ice cream and hot fudge to the mix after a romantic dinner and you couldn’t be more in love. By using one of our bars you are not only indulging in a sweet treat, but you are also indulging in love because for every bar you purchase and enjoy, you are showing your love to someone in need.
At TBSL, we believe the classic adage is true: “people will forget what you said or what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Thus, our day of love is devoted to those who need it the most. 
Today we are listening to tunes that exemplify love on all forefronts, not just about the love we have for our significant others, but about love for humanity, those we share the world with- strangers and kin alike.


What does love mean to you and how do you show your love?
