If you’ve never heard about Organic September before, then now’s the time to learn all about it. Organic September is a month-long campaign that raises awareness of the many benefits of organic food and production. These include supporting wildlife and biodiversity, combatting climate change, high standards of animal welfare and reduction of exposure to pesticides. If you want to read more about all of these reasons to choose Organic, then go to our blog post on the Top 10 Reasons to Choose Organic here.
Now, we’re certain that you completely understand why choosing organic is good for our and the planet’s health. But how does one actually join the Organic movement and support Organic September? We have some answers for you right here!
One of the first steps you can take is to gain a better understanding of what organic actually means and why it matters so much. As organic values and standards are built on the principles of health, ecology, care and fairness, no other system of farming or food production delivers as many benefits to wildlife, society and the natural world.
Another way to go organic is by opting for organic foods and products when going shopping. In that way you support organic farmers and food producers in upholding the highest standards of animal welfare, ensuring the use of healthier soils and supporting biodiversity.
Supporting locally and eating with the seasons are two other great ways of supporting the organic movement. Not only will you help smaller businesses, but you will also help our planet.
Lastly, you can join the Organic community either through organisations such as The Soil Association or by signing up for emails for practical tips on how to live organically.
One thing is certain, every little helps – and when you buy chocolate from Cocoa Loco you can be sure that the product you’re getting is Soil Association certified organic, Fairtrade and palm oil free!
