The Affordability of Organic

It has been reported that a single person will spend on average about $30 more a month buying organic. How much could one spend a month on one medication? How much more a month could one spend on one dietary supplement? Not all farmers agree that the USDA standards are strict enough. Some farmers argue that the standards have been eroding to compensate for corporate industrial farmers who want to use the organic label. But, we know, as informed consumers who read Shidonna Raven Garden & Cook regularly, that not all ingredients have to be organic just because the label says organic. Some of the ingredients can be non organic. The next time you go to the grocery store read the label of 3 items you buy carefully. What did you learn about the food you buy? Is the label transparent enough about the production of the food you buy?

Organic or Not?

Organic or Not?

Farmers are not entirely happy with the current USDA standards for Organic foods. However, they do have some standards and have begun to make packaging more transparent and informative. But, what is the big deal if the product is Organic and it is not food. Well, doctors will tell you, should tell you, that if you will not put it in your body do not put it on your body. The body absorbs what you put on your body thus it digests it in an another form. So, although in this case the products seem to be non food Organic products, improper labeling a product as Organic can have repercussions for the body and thus are important. Did you know you can contact the FTC with false label claims? Did you know they can sue and enforce regulations? How does this change your shopping habits?
