did you know that the greatest risks from pesticides in the diet come from eating conventionally produced fruits and vegetables? a new free pocket guide can help you avoid the highest-risk fresh produce during both the summer season and winter, when a significant share of fresh produce is imported. go to www.organic-center.org and download the “organic essentials” pocket guide, which lists of conventional fruits and vegetables that the center has determined pose the most significant pesticide-related risks and thus are the most critical produce items for consumers to purchase as organic.
i have been committed to using only organic cotton for loyale clothing because the farmers we work with avoid using pesticides, insecticides and chemical fertilizers, but it is important to ensure that you are eating as healthy as you are dressing!
eco-chic peace! xoxo, jenny
