Buying organic is the smart and ethical thing to do. It not only helps to promote good personal health for you and your family, but also has a lasting impact on the environment and the future health of our planet. Organic food is produced without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, growth hormones, artificial ingredients, dyes, preservatives or solvents, irradiation and genetic engineering. Children are especially at risk from exposure to these toxic substances. The nutritional quality of organic food is estimated to be about 40% greater than conventionally produced agriculture. Organic farming helps the environment by promoting biodiversity and strengthening soil quality. Organic farming practices also impact climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Healthier for you plus healthier for the earth – Seems like a no brainer to buy organic whenever you can.
