You know that organic…

  • Boosts the economy. Fact: Organic food sales grew by 12% in 2013, while other food sales experienced only a 3% growth.
  • Creates jobs. Fact: More than five hundred thousand American jobs were created by organic businesses in 2010.
  • Promotes environmentally sound practices. Fact: USDA organic standards require organic farmers to use Integrated Pest Management practices, protect wildlife, promote biodiversity, and work to improve and maintain native ecosystems. Organic soil management practices offer important opportunities for sequestering carbon and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
