Has the idea of living a more organic lifestyle always interested you, yet the thought of not knowing where to begin feels slightly daunting? Well this month, the team at Beaumont Organic are celebrating 'Organic September' and we are here to help you make those conscious organic changes, because going organic is easier than you would think!
'Organic September' is a month long celebration organised by the Soil Association to encourage us all to protect our vital wildlife and reduce the exposure to potentially harmful pesticides and chemicals. When you choose organic, you choose products that promote a better world where we can work with nature, not against it. There are many reasons why we think organic is great, and we hope you can all get involved this September.
So what can you do to be more organic this month? Firstly, you can make a change to your diet by consuming both organic milk and meat which contains around 50% more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than conventionally produced products - and this also guarantees that all livestock have lived a happy and healthy life! There's plenty of recipes online but here are some organic recipes for you to try from the Soil Association!
The Soil Association are also holding several organic events across the country, such as the 'Organic Beauty Week' which encourages you to look for the logo when shopping for make up to ensure that they are certified organic products. To get involved with any of these events, just click here to visit the website to find out more details.
The clothing industry in particular has a reputation for being one of the largest pollutants out there, and it is important that we use organic cotton as much as possible to ensure the clothing does not contain any toxic chemicals that can harm the ecosystems. Textile products that hold the Soil Association organic symbol have been produced to the highest possible animal welfare and environmental standards, which can be easily identified through the logo.
If you feel like you need a little inspiration on how to make your September organic, be sure to visit the Soil Association Website for some tips, recipes and advice on what organic steps you should take. They are also running competitions and giving exclusive offers, so don't miss out on your chance to win organic goodies by signing up online.
We hope that we have encouraged you all to think about the small changes that you can make to your lifestyle and together we can make a big difference. We simply need to eliminate the bad stuff and introduce the good! So what will you change this month? We would love to hear from you and why going organic is important to you, so please get in touch and feel free to share any of your tips, advice and anything in between.
