Organics 101

Here are some of the basic and best reasons to go Organic, according to CHFA’s NHP Week.

The benefits of buying organic foods:

When you buy organic foods, you’re not only investing in your health, you’re also supporting environmentally sustainable practices and humane animal welfare.  Other benefits include:
  • Organic products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures, without persistent toxic chemical inputs
  • These foods are made without the use of GMOs, and many people find they actually taste better
  • Organic farming practices help maintain a clean water supply, as well as soil health and fertility
  • Organic farming can use 30-50% less energy, so going organic can reduce your carbon footprint and help fight climate change

What to look for:

CHFA and the Canada Organic Trade Association has put together a great brochure on identifying factors (logos and labelling) to help make sure the products you’re buying are truly Organic. You can download it from their website, here. Check out our Pinterest board on Organic Food for even more information on reasons to go Organic!
