Today the word organic is all around us. But what does it really mean? We usually see the Certified Organic USDA label in our grocery stores, but few of us know the details of what makes an agricultural product Certified Organic. What exactly are they doing, or not doing to our food in order to get that seal printed on the label? Just about everyone knows that organic food is more expensive, but why? And more importantly - is it even worth it? Our final conclusion might surprise you.
Obviously gardening is a main focus of the site, and composting is a huge part of organic gardening at home, but even if you don't have a garden or a yard you might find some benefits to composting anyway. One very practical reason is it cuts down on trash. If you live somewhere you have to bring your own trash to the dump or have a bin provided by the town with limited space, composting will turn a good size portion of that garbage into something beneficial you can use or give away to a lucky friend.
What is composting anyway?
If you want to do some detailed reading on the subject, we have covered it here in our Gardening section. If you want the short version, the picture above pretty much sums it up.
Low on time? Here's the quick review:
Poofy Organics is a certified organic family run business that makes over 500 personal care and home cleaning products that are safe for you and your family. We have been using their products for over 2 years now and absolutely love the company and products in every way. They are the absolute safest line that we have come across. The company is Certified Organic and every ingredient and step in their process is accounted for, documented, and analyzed every year by a certified organic agent. If they add an ingredient to a product, it has to be approved before doing so. They not only avoid toxic ingredients such as synthetic fragrance, parabens, triclosan, PEGs, Triethanolamine, Oxybenzone, GMOs and other harmful chemicals but they also use recyclable and biodegradable packaging and never EVER test products on animals. All of their products are made in small batches by hand.
Poofy Organics products range from personal care products like bath and body, deodorants, lotions, sunscreen, oral care, makeup, nail polish, baby products, facial care and essential oils, as well as home cleaning essentials. I love that I have found a company (finally!) that I trust and can go to for almost any personal care or home cleaning product and get them at an affordable price. Hallelujah! A one stop shop for safe products! My heart could sing it makes me so happy!
