Why Buy Organic?

Organic products cannot be produced with most conventional pesticides; petroleum-based fertilizers or sewage sludge-based fertilizers; antibiotics, growth hormones, genetic engineering or irradiation (USDA).

  1. You safeguard your health as well as your family's.
    Organic produce is not grown and covered in a cocktail of poisonous pesticides that may cause cancer and detrimental reproductive effects. In conventional farming, 23 of the 28 most commonly used pesticides are carcinogenic. Pesticide residues in food cause 20,000 cancer deaths and thousands more new cancers per year, according to the National Academy of Sciences. cancer-causing substance
     
  2. You prevent soil erosion
    Current conventional agricultural practices of chemical-intensive, mono-crop farming has created the worst topsoil erosion in history. The Soil Conservation Service estimates more than 3 billion tons of topsoil are eroded from U.S. croplands each year. Buying organic supports farming practices that inherently build long-term soil health and stability.
     
  3. You protect water quality
    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that pesticides contaminate the groundwater in 38 states, polluting the primary source of drinking water for more than half the country’s population. Plain and simple, conventional farming is considered the largest non-point source of water pollution in the U.S.
     
  4. You protect natural habitat
    Organic farms support and nurture our beautiful and diverse wildlife. Intensive conventional farming with its resulting dramatic erosion of the soil, water pollution and destruction of natural habitat has led to a fall of up to 70% of wild birds in some areas, and the near extinction of some of the most beautiful species of butterflies, frogs, grass-snakes and wild mammals.
     
  5. You support small farmers
    Generally, organic farms are small, independently owned family farms of fewer than 100 acres. It’s estimated that the U.S. has lost more than 650,000 family farms in the past decade. Organic farming could be one of the few survival tactics left for family farms.
     
  6. You support farm workers health
    Intensive non-organic farming can seriously damage farm workers' health. There are much higher instances of respiratory problems, cancer,  and other major diseases, especially in developing countries, and for agrochemical farm workers growing cotton. So go organic today if you care about other people.
     
  7. 7.You support a true economy
    Although organic products might seem more expensive than conventional products, conventional product prices don’t reflect the hidden costs paid by taxpayers. We send billions of dollars in federal agricultural subsidies and just as much cleaning up the mess that agro-chemicals make to our natural water supply. For example, if you add in the environmental and social costs of irrigation to a on-organic head of lettuce, its price would range between $2 and $3. Go organic for a genuine more cost-effective future.
     
  8. Your food simply tastes so much better
    Because organic foods are not treated with fungicides, they must be sent to market as close to harvest as possible. Fresh organic produce contains on average 50% more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other micro-nutrients than non-organic farmed produce. There’s a good reason why many chefs use organic foods in their recipes -- they taste better!  
     
  9. You avoid genetically modified food
    Going organic is the only practical way to avoid eating genetically modified (GM) food. And by buying organic food, you are registering your mistrust of GMO's and doing your bit to protest against them.
     
  10. You protect your body from the outside
    What you put on the outside is just as important. Your skin is the biggest organ in your body. It is your live, breathing "packaging", capable of absorbing into your body what you apply on it. Why then would you pollute your body from the outside by using products made from non-organic ingredients? Go TOTALLY organic today!
