The Soil Association reveals its top of the swaps for Organic September

For 2016’s Organic September, the Soil Association is showing how you can make a big difference by making small changes to your everyday shopping.

Choosing certified organic food means choosing higher animal welfare and more sustainable management of our natural environment, including reduced use of pesticides, herbicides and artificial fertilisers.

  1. Reduce your exposure to potentially harmful pesticides
  2. Know what’s in your food
  3. Help combat climate change
  4. Help protect our wildlife
