Organic Living Tips      

Choose Certified Organic products

Look for the Certified Organic label. Avoid misleading labeling such as “organics”, “natural” and “organically produced” without evidence of certification.

Take one step at a time

To help defray costs, replace conventional foods with organic, one by one. Make fruit and baby food your first priorities.

Eat fresh, save money

Eliminating pre-packaged meals will save you money. So will buying local, in-season produce.

Choose organic fabrics

Some fabrics come from plants sprayed with harmful pesticides. Shop for Certified Organic cotton or hemp instead.

Make your own furniture polish

Squeeze the juice from a lemon into a small container with an airtight lid. Add 1-Tbsp olive oil and 1-Tbsp water, seal lid and shake well. Pour a small amount onto a cloth and wipe down wood furniture.

Make your own all-purpose cleaner

Combine 1-tsp baking soda, ½-tsp dish soap, 2-Tbsp vinegar in a spray bottle and shake. Let sit for a minute, then fill bottle with warm water, shake again. Give it a few more minutes to calm down. Spray and wipe.

Save those greens

When salad greens begin to wilt, lightly steam them. Then drizzle olive oil with lemon juice over them. Delicious!

Hit the farmers market

Typically less expensive than the organic offerings at a grocery store, organic produce from a farmers’ market will save you money.
