LOCAL – SUSTAINABLE – ETHICAL
We support Conscious Consumerism, where consumers are more aware of the choices they make when shopping and living day to day. We live in a time where most of us over-consume and look at price first and social/environmental impact second.
Why Organic – Organic food is food grown the way nature intended – without synthetic pesticides or herbicides, genetic modification, or man-made fertilisers. Organic farming prioritises the long-term health of the soil and the environment, ensuring the land can yield nutritious, sustainable food for years to come.
Non-organic food is food grown with ample intervention, often involving harmful chemicals and pesticides. Non-organic farming practices tend to strip nutrients from the soil, have adverse effects on the environment, and leave worrying traces of pesticides on produce.
True Cost of Food Production – The predominant approaches to food production, distribution, retailing and consumption are causing significant damage to the environment, to soil, to the climate, to biodiversity, to rural communities and to public health. We are either paying for this damage in hidden ways, for instance through water charges which include the cost of removing pesticides in drinking water; taxes which fund misdirected agricultural subsidies and environmental clean up costs, including many of those relating to flooding. We are also paying the costs of diet-related disease. These costs are often deferred on to future generations or other countries, as is currently the case with climate change and soil degradation, rainforest destruction and species extinction. So although food appears never to have been cheaper, when we look beneath the surface, we are actually paying far more for it than we might possibly imagine.
