Went grocery shopping last night for the first time in a couple of weeks and could not believe all the new organic products on the shelves - it was a sight for sore eyes!! And the list included products that you just wouldn't expect to be organic.
And then today, when checking out Internet World's blog I discovered this great site: Eco Shopping, designed to make shopping with a conscience easy! I'm thrilled they exist - it is exactly what I was thinking about in the supermarket last night - someone should be getting this info out - and they are!
Why buy Organic, Fair Trade or Locally Produced products?
Organic is a more sustainable choice for the farmers/producers, gives you a better tasting, healthier product free from nasty chemicals and a higher vitamin content.
Fair Trade is a better choice for the local farmers/producers, giving them a fair income and conditions for their output.
Locally produced is a better environmental choice and gives jobs to your local community.
