When you see the word organic (and the logo!) you can be sure what you buy has been produced to the highest standards. It means fewer pesticides, no artificial additives or preservatives, the highest standards of animal welfare and no GM ingredients. Organic farming releases less greenhouse gases per hectare than non-organic farming – choosing organic, local and seasonal food can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.
Take part in Organic September
The buying decisions we make every day are a simple but powerful form of direct action. The choices you make with the food you eat have an impact on the world you live in.
Organic food is everyday food. It is available nationwide in over 8,000 supermarkets, independent shops, box schemes, cafes and restaurants. It doesn’t always cost more. Everyday items such as yogurt, bread, pasta, tea and many seasonal vegetables are often the same as non-organic.
Switching to just one organic item can really help contribute to changing our food system for the better. Demand for more organic good means more organic arms. More organic farms means fewer pesticides more wildlife and more animals raised under the highest standards.

Think of the bees!
Organic farming is better for bees because of the complete absence of herbicides and the severely restricted use of fungicides and insecticides. Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds and butterflies. Overall plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms, and there are 30% more species. What’s not to love about that?!
