Organic consumption is healthy for both you and the planet!
Did you know that the average potato travels 600 miles to get to your plate? Buying local lowers CO2 emissions by reducing the distance your food has to travel to get to your mouth and you keep your money in the local economy.
Natural does not necessarily mean organic. A lot of companies try to do ‘green’ branding without actually making products that are climate-friendly. Technologies have expanded the size of our fruits and vegetables without increasing their nutritional content and made them look ripe when they’re not. Organic foods have higher concentrations of antioxidants. Some agri-business foods have been found to carry high levels of cadmium, a metal so toxic to the human body that it has to be treated like lead and mercury.
