Organic Foods

You recycle newspapers and soda cans, because you care about the environment and it’s an easy effort. Buying organic food, though, might be too “hippie” or too pricey for some people. Understandable, but organic, natural products offer an array of health benefits. In fact, fueling your body with organic food can actually bring out the best in you and the environment - no tree-hugging required.

Why eat organic? Consider these ground-breaking benefits of organic food: no genetically-modified additives, minimal to zero pesticides, sustainable farming techniques and toxic-free water systems. When the earth is clean, we grow clean food to fuel our bodies. Would you prefer pasta with a side of pesticides, or an organic diet, free of chemicals? (We thought so.) Toss your organic greens salad with Organicville Ranch dressing and taste the difference.

If you think organic food is too pricey, you’re in for a surprise. Vitacost.com offers a wide selection of budget-friendly, Earth-friendly food. Channel your inner granola head and snack on Best of All Organic Trail Mix - you’ll feel good about doing good.
