Consumer, Are you ready to do some good?

Will You Follow Whole Foods Market’s and Adopt an Organic Product, to do some good to yourself and the World?

I have been researching Organic goods for a long time now, back in Germany I am a certified Organic food specialist, I consumed/used mostly organic products.
Please read the article below, be aware that not everything stating organic contains organic, look for this label to ensure that you have a certified organic item:

“The Organic Consumers Association (OCA), the nation’s largest consumer group dedicated to organic integrity, is encouraging retailers to take action to address widespread organic labeling fraud in their health and beauty care aisles.

Many brands make organic claims on products whose main cleansing and moisturizing ingredients are composed in significant part of petrochemicals.”

Be aware; “Organic” or “Made with Organic Ingredients ” claims must be certified under the USDA National Organic Program, just like food. A more limited “Contains Organic Ingredients” claim for personal care may be certified under the NSF ANSI 305 standard. Organic claims that are not certified, including “Organics” in branding, is not allowed.

Retailers selling non-certified “organic” cosmetics face a choice. They can follow stores like the Whole Foods’ lead and require truthful labels, or they can continue to enable organic fraud. Consumers will look unfavorably on retailers that duck responsibility and continue to profit from the organic cheater brands that rip off their customers.

Ever since we have moved to Okinawa, Japan our grocery shopping has changed drastically, supporting the local stores is a big must for me. You have to know that organic includes as well where your items come from, vegetables could be organic right around your corner, transportation is a big topic when we talk organic. So, always make sure you shop locally… like at your local Farmers Market!

Now, I like to share an organic item:
