The way we’ve produced food has changed; we want it fast and we want it now! However, in order to get it fast and now, we sacrifice the quality of the foods we eat and the conditions that they’re produced in.
So what does organic mean?
Organic means food that is produced in its purest and most natural form! This means that there is no use of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
But why shop organic?
By shopping organic, you’re supporting natural farming practices! Organic farming helps improve biodiversity and attempts to keep our earth clean from pesticides and artificial fertilizers.
When you choose to shop organic, it means that you are doing your part to protect our animal friends from unnecessary antibiotics and hormones! These animals are treated poorly and injected with hormones and other substances that pass through the food chain and end up in our bodies.
How to identify organic products?
You can identify if a product is organic by the symbol that is on the packaging!
