Whenever I am grocery shopping the thought always crosses my mind…
“Does it really matter if it’s organic or not? I mean c’mon the organic one is way more expensive.”
Well thanks to the recommendation from a friend, I found myself sitting in front of the website for the Environmental Working Group.
Their mission is to use the power of public records and information to protect our health and environment. Their research brings to light many of the unsettling facts about our food and diets that we should all be aware of. With this information, their hope is that we can all make informed choices about what and how we eat.
To sum up EWG, they love our bodies and we have never even met!
And since eating conventionally grown produce is far better than eating no produce at all, they also have a website that gives information to consumers regarding pesticides in produce as well. Take a look!
Hopefully this makes your organic vs. non-organic shopping choices a little easier, even if it does dent the wallet a tiny bit.
Remember, it’s worth it!
