Organic September is a month-long campaign designed to raise the profile of organic in the UK and shine a light on the amazing organic farmers, producers and brands who work hard to produce food as it should be. This year’s Organic September 2018 is fast approaching, so this week I’ve shared some easy ways to live a more organic lifestyle.

Organic September 2018: simple ways to live a more organic life

Wear organic cotton, rather than conventional cotton

When you wear organic cotton you’re supporting a more environmentally friendly, ethical supply chain. Plus, you’ll benefit from the comfort of better quality, softer fabrics.  Learn more about why we love organic cotton here.

Use organic beauty products

Buy organic beauty products wherever you can, or better yet, make your own using readily available ingredients from your kitchen! Here are some DIY organic beauty tips from our customers last year. Or check out Jo’s favourites!

Make your own organic cleaning products

Many standard, shop-bought cleaning products are full of toxic chemicals that can do more harm than good. I’ve recently been using a simple, DIY vinegar spray which cuts through dirt and grease easily. Try the recipe from our friend, Wendy of Moral Fibres.

Grow organic vegetables

If you can, one of the best ways to go organic is to grow your own vegetables. This is much cheaper, healthier, energy efficient and so very satisfying. Here are some seasonal veggies to plant this Autumn.

If you must eat meat, eat less but buy quality, organic meat

Organically farmed animals have much higher wellbeing than any other farmed animals. They are nourished with GM free food and graze on organic pasture free from nasty pesticides. If you must eat meat, then treating yourself to organic meat less often is better for your health, without costing the earth!
