Why Organic September Is Important To Us
If you follow us on Instagram, you will have noticed we kicked off September supporting Soil Association’s month long campaign #OrganicSeptember. Although one could argue that this is an issue that focuses on food and farming, it’s a cause we support and here’s why.
Organic September is a month-long campaign to raise awareness of the many benefits of organic food and farming. In the face of climate change, diet related ill-health and the widespread decline in wildlife and the planet, there has never been a more urgent time for change.
Organic is basically working with nature to help restore our declining planet. Organic farming in particular is leading the way when it comes to sustainability as it enhances the health of soils, water and air. Soil association reported that if Europe’s farmland all followed organic principles, agricultural emissions could drop by 40-50% by 2050. This would lead to no artificial fertiliser, healthier soils that store more carbon as well as meat that is more environmentally friendly.
A shocking static shows that 41% of Britain’s wildlife species have declined since 1970, with more than 1 in 10 facing extinction. What is causing this? Farming practices, most notably the use of pesticides. Organic farmings offers a safer alternative and can provide homes for bees, birds and butterflies. Buying organic food is better for both you and the planet. Food made with fewer pesticides will have fewer additives and preservatives too.
This extends to the products you use on your bodies too! Organic products are often cruelty-free, vegan & natural. Products that are not tested on animals are also free of nasty chemicals and synthetic dyes too. The cleaner the product, the better it is for your skin.
