For most of us, the connection between eating organic and good health is clear: if we eat organic, we’ll reduce our exposure to toxic and persistent pesticides and enjoy the benefits of nutrient-rich food. What many of us forget is the connection between the other activities we engage in at home, like doing laundry and cleaning the kitchen, and the impact they have on our health, our families’ health, and the health of our planet.
Choosing products made with organic ingredients is an easy way to ensure that this impact is a positive one. After all, these ingredients have been approved for use in organic food production and processing. If they are good enough to eat, they good enough for use in our homes, too! Faced with a choice between organic household products and their non-organic counterparts? Choose organic. It’s worth it.
