8 things you didn’t know about organic food
By now, the benefits of organic produce are pretty well-documented. Organic food is better for the planet since it requires no artificial fertilisers and promotes healthier soils that can store more carbon. It’s better for animal welfare, as organic standards ensure that all animals reared for meat and animal products have a better quality of life. It’s better for wildlife, as organic farming supports cleaner water and richer biodiversity. And of course, it’s good for people, too – organic produce has lower concentrations of pesticides and heavy metals, and higher levels of antioxidants and beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.
Six things you didn’t know about Fairtrade
Since the late 1980s, Fairtrade has been working to ensure a fair deal for farmers and workers around the world. Under the system, producers of everything from coffee and flowers to makeup and clothing are guaranteed workers’ rights, safer working conditions and fairer pay. This in turn leads to wider positive change, such as developing women in leadership and investing in climate-friendly farming techniques.
