A Closer Look at Organic Food – Part 1

Today we know that most of our daily foods, from vegetables to meat and dairy, can be produced organically. But exactly does “organic” mean?  “Organic” basically refers to the type of farming and production processes applied to produce food. The difference between organic and non-organic food boils down to the use of chemicals and whether or not environmental conservation is fostered. These two main aspects, namely the elimination of chemicals from the entire food production process and the subsequent contribution to environmental conservation, form the foundation for our thinking that organic food is healthier and more environmentally friendly than conventional foods. In this series, this theory will be explored – we will delve deeper into the excitement about organic produce, discovering facts that will help us make choices that will positively influence our lives, families, and our environment.  Read this article on What’s Your Impact and learn more about organic production.
