Organic

What does ‘organic' really mean and why is it better for you? When we say that our goods have organic ingredients in them what does that mean?

For most people the first thing that comes to mind when they think of word ‘organic' is food. Yet ‘organic' means so much more. It is only a short step to becoming aware of other products and meaning of the word, e.g. clothing, skincare, holidays, wine and gardening, to name but a few. There are many ways to establish an organic way of life.

So why do people choose to ‘go organic' ?

Here are just some of the reasons:

  • Their own wellbeing - as far as possible unnecessary chemical sprays are avoided.
  • The environment - organic philosophy is a holistic approach and encourages a much greater diversity of wildlife. The use of GM technology is prohibited.
  • The welfare of animals -a natural lifestyle for all animals is in-keeping with the organic ethos.

Products in the Organic category are free from:

  • Pesticides,
  • Artificial fertilizers,
  • Human waste, or sewage sludge, - do we really need say this? (yes if you're Ricky Gervais)
  • Genetic modification.

Also they were processed without:

  • Ionizing radiation,
  • Food additives.

For the rearing of animals this means:

  • No routine use of antibiotics,
  • No use of growth hormones.

Organic is simply the natural choice.
