Maintaining an organic lifestyle is about removing harmful substances from our bodies, diets and lifestyles. Most people will liken organic products to fruits and vegetables, but it doesn’t stop there. Organic products can also include teas, beauty products, jams and more.
Being able to give an organic gift can be a blessing. Whether it’s for a friend, family member, partner, work colleague or any other significant person in your life, you can let them know you care for their health and wellbeing by sending them an organic product hamper.
Understanding the difference between organic products and items with harsh chemicals can be difficult. To help build your knowledge of organic products, our blog will detail some things to look for and avoid. Carefully read through our recommendations and find the perfect organic gifts for your loved ones to enjoy.
What is an organic product?
An organic product is created using natural ingredients and contains minimal chemicals. Many individuals associate organic products with fruit and vegetables; however, they are not the only items available. There are many different types of organic products available, and they all come with varying ingredients.
Those who maintain an organic lifestyle source natural ingredients or products that have been exposed to limited chemicals. Organic items are not necessarily chemical free, but they are considerably lower than any other product you can purchase. Essentially they are made from natural ingredients and have no harmful chemicals. Determining whether or not a product is organic can be challenging if you’re unfamiliar with what organic products are. We will go into more detail about how to look for the differences below.
What are the values of being organic?
There are many benefits of living organically that can affect you and the environment. Here are some of the more well known benefits of going organic.
Reduces exposure to chemicals. Organic foods have been exposed to fewer chemicals than other foods. While it is impossible to guarantee they haven't been exposed to any chemicals (as there can be residue in the soil), they still have reduced exposure to toxins. This, in turn, will limit your exposure to harmful toxins.
Improves soil fertility. The more pesticides are used, the less fertile the land becomes. While chemicals make it possible for certain foods to last longer, they harm the Earth. Being organic helps promote the healthier farming of food products for a more sustainable future.
Supports local farms. Locating organic foods can be difficult, and they are often hard to find. The best source of organic foods is on local, family owned farms. Farms that specialise in organic produce will struggle to keep up with the rest of the marketplace. Shopping organically not only helps you, but it also helps support and finance local organic farms.
Mistakes to avoid when selecting organic product gifts
Living an organic lifestyle requires a lot of research in the beginning stages. You have to learn how to detect natural products and ensure that limited chemicals are used. This can be very difficult when you first start, but it will become easier. Here are some mistakes to avoid when selecting organic products.
Accepting organic labels. The most common way to differentiate what is organic and what isn’t is by looking for organic labels. While this is a convenient solution, it doesn’t always ensure a product is organic. Instead, you will have to look at the ingredients used and determine whether they are, in fact, natural products. The organic labels will point you in the correct direction, but you will still have to do a little research. It may take a little longer, but it can help guarantee you’re purchasing appropriate products.
Purchasing items that have non-recyclable packaging. A lot of organic products will be contained in a glass or recyclable plastic. Being organic is means you are giving back to the Earth and aiming to create a healthier and more sustainable future. In doing so, never purchase items with one-use packaging. Make sure everything is reusable.
Don’t purchase organic products from questionable suppliers. Organic brands will list all the included ingredients in their products, and suppliers will be able to access this information upon request. Organic brands and suppliers ensure their products give back to the Earth and have all their packaging be recyclable. Always make sure you learn about the brand before purchasing their products.
