September is National Organic Month

How many plastic bags are you using each week?

Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic products sold and used by most retail and grocery stores may never biodegrade completely.

You find these products in our oceans, waterways, front yards and in the stomachs of innocent animals searching for food.

People can consume food contaminated with plastic products that have decomposed in animals and waterways enough so that the toxin bisphenol A (BPA) is undetectable by eyesight during food processing.

September is the season of harvest for our farm families.

This is a great time to spotlight organic farming, foods and products available for informed consumers.

Taste and the amount of pesticides used when growing produce are reasons consumers are spending more of their hard-earned dollars on organic products.

Consumers have the power to have more healthy food products available for themselves and wildlife by supporting their local organic farms and organizations.
