Go Organic, designed with nature in mind

Because organic works with nature, not against it, by protecting our soil, our wildlife and our world. With one small swap to organic, you can take a tangible action to support a more sustainable future for the world in which we live in – by supporting wildlife and high animal welfare; helping combat climate change; and enjoying food as it should be.

May is the perfect month for gardening!

We will share tips and tricks on how to start your organic garden. From fruit and vegetables to ornamental plants, even those with a not-so green thumb will manage to grow beautiful plants!

If you have space, why not try to grow your own vegetables? Salads, spinaches, carrots, potatoes are all quite easy to grow and you will feel so rewarded when you will be bringing to your table your own grown food!

For those of you with less space, fear not, a bag of potatoes (see picture) can fit the smallest of the balconies and still bring lots of rewarding fruits! Try also carrots and peas which don't need too much space and are fun to grow!

Keep an eye on our blog articles for our guides on how to start, nurture and grow your organic garden, big or small.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ORGANIC?

Organic means supporting wildlife

Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds, and butterflies. On average, plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms.

The highest standards of animal welfare

Animals raised organically enjoy the highest welfare standards available. Organic standards insist that animals are given plenty of space and fresh air, and that they are raised in conditions that suit their natural behaviour. Smaller flocks and herds, and more access to the outdoors means organic animals don't have to be routinely treated with antibiotics and wormers. Mutilations like beak-trimming to prevent the aggressive side effects of stress are also not needed or allowed.

Reduced exposure to pesticides

Choosing organic is an easy way to limit our exposure to pesticides, herbicides (weed killers) and many additives and preservatives. Organic farmers aim to create a natural balance between plants and animals to prevent pests, so that they don't need to rely on pesticides.

Enjoying food as it should be

Choosing organic means that you are supporting farming practices with a more traceable production process and you will always know what's in your food. Organic standards prohibit GM crops and ingredients, hydrogenated fats, and controversial artificial foods colours and preservatives.
