Five easy ways to go organic 🌱🤗

Going organic is no mean feat, particularly as the lifestyle choice can have a heftier price tag, which is why we’ve put together a list of just five easy organic swaps that’ll give you a little more peace of mind, without breaking the bank.

Peanut Butter

No longer a mere sandwich filler, the protein-rich spread has risen up to be a kitchen cupboard staple, whether you add a spoonful to your morning porridge or spread it on apple chunks for a healthy snack.

Why organic? You avoid increased exposure to pesticides and any pesky added sugars and oils used to increase shelf life and creaminess of texture.

Energy Bars

They’re a godsend when you’re in need of pre-workout fuel or a mid-afternoon boost, but organic energy bars are best if you want a more natural and healthy kick.

Why organic? A lot of bars are packed with sugar and additives which can take their toll on your digestive system and prevent absorption of nutrients. Top tip: the fewer the ingredients, the better the bar!

Popcorn

Ready-made popcorn is undoubtedly the cool kid of the snack aisle, but if you still like to get it the good old-fashioned way, buy the kernels and pop them yourself for a healthier and chemical-free snack.

Why organic? Some scientists link the linings of microwave bags to cancer and artificial butter has been linked to causing breathing difficulties.

Face Cream

Cleansers, toners, serums, oils, primers, foundations – we slather a huge amount of product onto our faces every day. But don’t fret! Just one product swap can get you one big step towards chemical-free skin: an organic moisturiser.

Why organic? Unlike cleansers which are washed off, and foundations which sit on top of the skin, moisturisers are actually absorbed by the skin. You’re also more likely to absorb any chemicals on your face because the skin is thinner.000423_A

Every-day cleaning products

If you don’t want to risk exposing yourself or fellow home-dwellers to mainstream household cleaning products, opt for an all-natural formula.

Why organic? Using chemical-packed household cleaners on a daily basis increases the likelihood of irritating the skin, eyes and respiratory tract.
