It’s time to shake off the slow pace of summer, and attend to unfinished business.
There’s still a third of 2016 to go so make it count and finish strong. Let’s make September the new January!
It could be the ideal time to find that new job, drink more greens, or start a daily meditation practice.
Or how about going organic? This month is organic September – all 30 days are dedicated to championing organic so it’s a perfect time to make the transition!
I’m in love with organic. I hope you fall in love too if you haven’t already!
So in celebration of organic September, I’ve come up with 8 reasons to make the shift …
1. Organic Food Tastes Superior
Well balanced soils produce strong, healthy plants that become nourishing food for people and animals. The food tastes fresh and real.
2. Reduced Health Risks
Many pesticides are linked to cancers and other diseases. Organic farming is one way to prevent more of these chemicals/toxins from getting into the air, earth and water.
My clients and I detox regularly to get rid of any toxins in the body, and the results are astounding.
Organic certification is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without toxic chemical inputs.
4. Preserves Healthy Soil
Soil is the foundation of the food chain. The primary focus of organic farming is to use practices that build and maintain healthy soils.
5. Better For Nature, Enviroment & Diversity
Organic agricultural respects the ecosystem. Wildlife is encouraged by including forage crops in rotation and by retaining fencerows, wetlands, and other natural areas.
Organic farming aims to minimise agriculture’s impact on the environment. The loss of a large variety of species is one of the most pressing environmental concerns. The good news is that many organic farmers and gardeners have been collecting and preserving seeds, and growing unusual varieties for decades.
6. Wide Organic Food & Non Food Choices
Now every food category has an organic alternative. And non food products are also now being grown organically e.g. beauty products, cotton etc
7. Preserves Healthy Water
The elimination of polluting chemicals, combined with soil building, protects and conserves our water resources.
8. Gives Rural Farms A Future
Organic agriculture can be a lifeline for small farms because it offers an alternative market where sellers can command fair prices for crops.
Making the actual swap from non organic to organic is pretty small and easy, but the rewards are huge.
Using organic is kinder to yourself, wildlife and the planet.
Give it a try and see for yourself.
