It is well known that organic fruits and vegetables are better for our bodies. But there is more to it than that.
Buying foods grown with pesticides means that people working in those fields are exposed to those dangerous chemicals for hours on end, day after day. And the toxic run off from fields sprayed with chemicals ends up in the water system which affects so many more.
We Vote With Our Money
For many companies, money is the most important factor they consider.
Every time you spend money on their product you send a clear message to them to create more of that product.
The more we buy eco friendly products (healthy for us, others and the planet) the more these products will show up.
The more we all avoid health damaging and environmentally damaging products the quicker these will disappear.
Be aware when you shop;
Keep it local, keep is sustainable, keep it healthy .. and shop second hand as much as possible.
