These products are Organic! They have been created without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers or man-made chemicals. There are no herbicides, genetically modified seeds or synthetic additives making this a pure and natural green choice you can feel confident about purchasing.
Why Are Organic Products Important?
According to the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), of the entire spectrum of refined, usable, global land, raw cotton utilizes approximately 2.5% using upwards of 16% of the world’s insecticides making it the number one crop for environmentally unsound practices. The low environmental impact of using organic products is another testament to its label. Because there are no chemical toxins used in the production process this means no leaching into our soil either before or after use. Organic beauty care products employ the use of botanicals, herbs and other plant compounds that help sustain environmental impacts such as bee colony preservation and important pollinating needs. Overall, the carbon footprint released by organic practices is significantly reduced as land, transportation and packaging are all taken into account to create a fully organic product rather than a halfway attempt.
In addition, when a society supports organic consumerism it is enhancing its own, vital health by reducing exposure to synthetic, chemical laden materials that, over time, can be indirectly linked to possible skin and/or other adverse health reactions.
What is the Future for Organics?
The future keeps getting better for organic practices as more people become informed of their decision making powers. It reminds huge corporations that it is the consumer who still has the upper hand in what they are going to use. Organizations continue to form regarding the checks and balances needed to protect the consumer against untoward business tactics that can often skirt the organic label they place on their products. There is the National Standards Foundation (NSF) implementing strict organic standards as well as The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) that continues to inspect and uphold farm to factory to consumer organic labeled goods. As consumers demand, more companies embrace organic products that inevitably create a trickle-down effect of future farming/manufacturing practices that will, in due time, add to a more sustainable planet.
