WHAT DOES ORGANIC MEAN?
The USDA says, "Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods that integrate cultural, biological and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity. Synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation and genetic engineering may not be used."
"I personally chose to go vegan because I educated myself on factory farming and cruelty to animals, and I suddenly realized that what was on my plate were living things, with feelings. And I just couldn't disconnect myself from it any longer." Ellen DeGeneres
Plant-based diet can help save the planet.
Organically grown foods are found to be much higher in antioxidants.
"Organic food has a higher nutritional value than ordinary produce", - A study by Newcastle University
Organic food is often fresher. Organic food is usually fresher when eaten because it doesn’t contain preservatives that make it last longer. Organic produce is often produced on smaller farms near where it is sold.
Organic farming is better for the environment. Chemical pesticides can make it hard for birds and small animals to reproduce and can even kill them. It is also better for the people who harvest our food.
