Being an organic bread company, we obviously are major proponents for living an organic lifestyle!
Every person living this way probably has a different reason for why they make the daily choice to choose organic foods, practice organic living and teach this way of life to their friends and family.
So today, we’re sharing five excellent reasons why you should change your lifestyle to organic and how it will benefit not only you but the world as a whole.
1. Protect your health.
By eating organically you no longer need to worry about GMOs and pesticides and you can ensure that what you are putting into your body is pure and free of any harmful additives. Not only is organic safer for your body but it tastes better too! Because organic farming eliminates the use of pesticides and unusual preservatives, the tastes of your favorite foods will pop and you’ll feel happier and more fulfilled.
2. Make ethical and moral decisions a part of your life.
Choosing to live organically means that your ingredients and food products come from an ethical source. To break this down even further, you are choosing to support raising free-range animals, which also supports the environment. These ethical practices will carry into your own life in multiple ways as “doing good” is a contagious act.
3. Support your local community.
When you buy organic products from your local farmer’s markets or CSA’s, you are helping local farmers maintain their jobs and allowing them to feed their own families in this healthful way. It’s a an act of kindness that makes you feel good while spreading wealth at the same time.
4. Support your world.
In addition to supporting your local organic resources, you are also supporting the world. “Organic farming is defined as the use of composting, green manure, crop rotation and natural, biological pest control.” Keeping your community organic and buying from certified organic sources feeds organic farming across the world and helps to better everyone involved.
5. Live sustainably.
Finally, because you are doing all that is mentioned above, you are choosing to live sustainably and ensuring a great world for future generations. Buying locally, choosing the healthiest foods and making ethical decisions mean that you are living a sustainable life and one that will improve the quality of life for many, well into the future.
