Why You Should Choose Organic Vegetables
Organic foods during Ramadan
Organic agriculture is defined as farming which does not use manufactured chemical pesticides or fertilizers. One of its direct social benefits, benefits for all of us around the world, is that it contributes to the fight against climate change by cutting back on the fossil fuels used in that manufacturing. Instead, organic farming uses natural fertilizers like manure, compost, or plant waste left on fields, rotates crops to preserve soil quality, and actively acts against soil erosion through the use of cover crops.
Ramadan is a time of reflection. This year, we invite you to reflect with us about our relationship to food and through food on our relationship to farming. What we eat comes from a place and a people. At FoodCrowd we aim for that place and those people to be as close to you as possible. We also truly care about the quality of that food, for you eating it as well as for the planet and our global community. Choosing organic means you’re choosing to avoid possibly putting any noxious chemicals, pesticide residue, or toxic metals in your own body as well as in the ground.
At Food Crowd we are committed to lowering our country’s carbon footprint by tightening up supply chains, bringing them food production closer to food consumption, and in doing so drastically reducing the use of fossil fuels in transport. We’re also invested in raising the share of organic food on our tables to lessen fossil fuel use from that angle as well. There is an enormous amount of energy put into the industrial process of pesticide and fertilizer production and by choosing organic farming and organic products, we’re showing our commitment to reducing that. This year during Ramadan we invite you to shop with Food Crowd and choose the very best locally grown organic foods. You can easily filter for organic fresh fruits and vegetables on our website.
