By choosing organic fruits sand vegetables you build strong foundations for good health. Organic food is an absolutely fundamental component to good health as you protect your body from the harsh chemicals present in conventionally farmed foods. Certified organic foods undergo rigorous testing to ensure it is free from harmful chemicals and contains higher levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes than found in conventional foods.
The price of non-organic food does not truly reflect the impact it has on our environment. Organic and biodynamic farmers run their farms as integrated systems, emphasising all elements – soil, flora, fauna, insects and humans.
Organic farmers use no synthetic chemicals or GM crops and nurture and enrich the earth they work on, performing what an early champion of organics called ‘the sacred duty of handing over, unimpaired to the next generation, the heritage of a fertile soil’.
Supporting organic and biodynamic farming encourages sustainable agriculture traditions and rebuilds ecosystems with no cost to environment. It also employs comparatively more people than conventional farming, due to its reliance on human labour. This has a positive effect on rural communities and contributes to economic and social stability.
Organic food is especially important for your children’s sensitive, growing bodies. Children are more vulnerable to the toxins found in food that is grown using chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Organic food will truly nourish your child’s health and wellbeing.
Yep, organic food tastes better. Fruit and vegies that have been grown without pesticides and other harmful additives have a richer, deeper flavour. Eat organic and celebrate the flavour of fruit and vegetables as they should be.
Ultimately, organic food is the only choice for people who care about their health and the planet we live on.
