Home and Body

When choosing organic products, most consumers start with organic food items such as fresh produce and milk. However, there is a wide diversity of other organic products available, including organic apparel and beds/bedding, cleaning and household products, nutritional supplements, organic flowers, and even organic pet food.

Our choices when doing the laundry, selecting apparel, and buying personal care products all have an impact on the health of our planet. Choosing products made with organic ingredients is an easy way to ensure that this impact is a positive one.

All organic non-food products are produced without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides, as well as synthetic fertilizers. As a result, choosing an organic t-shirt, organic dog food, an organic personal care or an organic nutritional supplement help prevent damage to valuable water resources, protect species diversity, and combat climate change.
