Why I Love Organic

by Julie Gibbons on January 11, 2011

The $2.8million campaign has begun to promote organic food in the UK. You’ll already be aware of my reservations about this campaign, but I want to state here that I fully endorse the sentiments behind it.

Organic UK in Europe

It’s heart warming to see some positive coverage about organics and there’s certainly a need to increase awareness. This research shows UK organic consumption to be well behind our Euro counterparts:

I’d have gone with a Lollipop Test advert born out of the fabulous post by fellow organikaler mook (but I’m not really their audience).

If you’re at all unsure of the reason why you love organic, go here for a 5 question test to help you discover it. Apparently I’m a Nature Lover - that’ll be me, the eco-warrior in disguise.

Share and win

Figured out your answer? Share it on the site and you could win an organic hamper. I entered, yes I did:

In case you’re wondering, here are some of the reasons given for not buying organic food.

Hey Julie, just stopping by. Love, love your website! Hubby and I are about 75% organic in our food (just started getting bimonthly delivery from local farms), always looking for ways to expand beyond the refrigerator.

This is a phenomenal resource! See you around Bloom by Moon…
