…..to eat organic? Kidsorganics.com has lots of great ideas and information on living organically, along with useful products and links. Its written by parents promoting the use of organic food and green living, and while their focus is on tips for moms and kids, most of the information is really useful for anyone. If this article is any indication, I think these parents have listened to some Beastie Boys in their time. JK
Wouldn’t it be great if the food we ate was safe,
free from pesticides
We deserve to be able to purchase safe and healthy food, especially for
people seeking wellness
and expectant mothers,
Fight for the right!
Grow your own. It does not take a lot of space to begin to grow some of your very favorite vegetables, herbs or fruit. They just need sun, water and organic mulch. Do not use pesticides or chemicals on your plants. These are poison, to the bugs and yourself. Find natural ways to control pests from eating the fruits of your labor.
Request your local supermarket carry natural and organic foods. Demand that their growers and distributors label foods that have been genetically modified.
Shop at local farms stands. Buy fresh, in-season organic produce. In season = in-sync with your body. Local = Less Gas, Less Cost.
Purchase your foods from markets that specialize in organic foods. Some of these markets are Whole Foods, Jimbo’s, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, CSA programs, in your own community, organic food co-op’s, farmer’s markets, Wild Oats, KidsOrganics.Com and Fresh-n-Easy.
When you have no other option but conventionally grown produce, make sure you wash off any residual pesticides with Healthy Harvest, a non-ionic fruit and vegetable rinse, gentle on the earth, your produce and your self.
