Why Buy Organic?
It’s Australian Organic Awareness Month. The idea is to help people understand the importance of eating and using certified organic products. From the benefits of organic farming to the joys of sipping on an organic beer, it’s all celebrated in September.
In Australia, Certified Organic Always Means:
- Sustainable and Regenerative
- Synthetic Herbicide, Pesticide and Chemical Free
- Free Range and No Artificial Additives or Hormones
- All GMOs are Prohibited
