Five Benefits of Choosing Certified Organic:

You keep hearing about “green this” or “organic that,” but do you really know why organic products are better?

Let me break it down for you in a simple fashion…

  1. It’s Good for the soil

Organic systems rely on a modern and scientific understanding of ecology and soil science, while also depending on traditional methods of crop rotations to ensure fertility and weed and pest control.

  1. It’s Good for the environment

Organic systems aim to reduce dependence on non-renewable resources. Organic production aims at all times towards sustainability whilst having best management of the environment and wildlife as a priority.

  1. It’s Good for people

Organic based ingredients have been shown in a number of studies to contain more vitamins, nutrients and cancer-fighting antioxidants than non-organic ingredients.

  1. There are NO synthetic chemicals

Organic systems prohibit the use of artificial chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers.

  1. There are NO GMO's

Certified Organic products are produced without GMOs (genetically modified organisms), which are prohibited in the standards for organic food and farming.

Tell me, what organic products do you like to buy? Any favorites?


  1. Nice breakdown - simple and to the point. We recently started a green fashion Internet TV show and our second episode is about organic cotton and how conventional cotton is harmful to people and the environment. This is an important topic for people to learn. If you want to check out our episode about organic cotton, you can see it at

  2. Thanks for letting me know about the episode! I think it's important that people know there really is a difference between products that are produced organically and not.
