Organic September 2014
Date: Friday, July 18, 2014
Organic September – This year the Soil Association needs you to join their “Small Changes, Big Difference” campaign. And again this year we have a whole month to celebrate all things organic as National Organic Fortnight has been replaced and has now become Organic September.
The message is to promote organic and encourage shoppers to discover their own favourite organic products – and there are lots to choose from. So, swap your usual supermarket foods for organic products. Be kinder to yourself, your wildlife, and create an overall healthier planet.
So … how can you take part in Organic September? Well, there are lots of ways!
For more information about activities and how you can get involved, go to Organic September for the details.
Why not make a pact to replace just one of your everyday products each month with an organic one instead. You could replace food items, beauty products, clothing or household goods and before you know it you could be completely organic! The Soil Association has lots of helpful ideas about how you can shop for less and if you join The Soil Association you can get access to exclusive offers via Organic Connect a directory of independent retailers and suppliers.
You could even have an organic box, filled with fresh fruit and veg, delivered straight to your door. And this year as part of the “Small Changes, Big Difference” campaign Organic Beauty Week will take place from 8-14 September 2014. So, if a friend or family member’s birthday is coming up, eco gifts are a great alternative.
