Top 5 Tips for Living an Organic Lifestyle

Posted on
What do you think of when you hear organic? Probably ripe grapes, fresh off the vine and juicy Fuji apples plucked right off the tree, yes? You wouldn’t be alone, most people think of food, and while it is definitely one of the most immediately gratifying organic options, lucky for us, it is not the only eco-friendly lifestyle option.
From the clothes we wear to the cleaning products in our home, organic options are all around us. Going organic has many so many benefits. One of the most universally understood is how much healthier it is for us. Getting rid of toxic pesticides and chemicals in our refrigerators and homes helps us live longer, happier and healthier lives.  
Choosing organic options whenever possible is a sustainable way to live life. It refocuses our attention on the long-term needs of our children and our grandchildren over the short-term perks to be gained by corporations benefitting from cheap chemical alternatives.
Here are 5 things you and your family can do to live a more organic lifestyle.

Cook at Home

Cook at home

Preparing meals in the comfort of your own home ensures that you know exactly what you are putting in you and your family’s body. Cooking at home also sets the standard of health for everyone in your home.

Labels: More than just Marketing

Look for organic labels
 Shop with companies who go out of their way to go organic and provide only the best organic lifestyle products for you and your family.

Build a Garden

Grow a garden
Consider growing some of your own food! Not only does it cut the cost on your favorite vegetables, but it can be a fun hobby for the whole family. Many people find it very stress relieving and rewarding, too!

Shop Local

Shop local farmers markets and grocers
Whenever you can, shop local. It keeps business who are focused on providing only the best organics in business and ensures you help your local community. There is nothing quite like perusing your local farmers market!

Rid your House of Chemicals

Ditch unhealthy household cleaning products
Often overlooked, cleaning supplies are probably one of the worst for our health. Many are filled with phosphates and phthalates, which are known links to carcinogens. And much worse, those bubbly cleaning supplies are washed down our drains into our water supplies and waterways every day.
We would love to hear from you, what simple changes have you made to create an eco-friendly lifestyle?
