What is Organic?
In the most basic sense, organic means grown or raised naturally. For crops, this means that no chemicals e.g., pesticides), sewagesludge, radiation, or genetic engineering are used on the product. For organic animal products like eggs, dairy, and meat, there is an additional aspect: the chickens and cows are not given antibiotics or growth hormones. (When organic animals get sick, they are of course given antibiotics, but their organic classification is permanently revoked.)
In short, organic products are better for humans, animals, and the Earth. They don’t contribute to pollution, they promote humane treatment, and they contain only what nature meant for them to have – no chemical residues or growth hormones.
What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a system of exchange that honors producers, communities, consumers, and the environment. It is a model for the global economy rooted in people to-people connections, justice, and sustainability.
A unique experience everytime.
