Everything we make at Booja-Booja is organic. From our melt-in-your-mouth chocolate truffles to our creamily delicious Ice Cream Alternative, we only use the finest, organic ingredients in all our gorgeous treats. We are organic because we believe that there’s a direct connection between our health and how the food we eat is produced and because we believe in looking after our planet and the plants and animals on it. If you like the idea of going organic but it all seems a bit daunting, Organic September is for you. It couldn’t be easier to get involved and to discover how, by making a small change, YOU can make a big difference!
This Organic September why not try a few organic products you’ve never tried before or make a simple swap in your shopping basket – choose organic bananas, organic tea or organic milk for a change. It may be just a small change for you but you’ll be part of a huge movement – one of thousands of people each making the same small changes – which means you’ll be helping to make a really big difference. You’ll be showing your support to organic farmers (who don’t get exposed to harmful pesticides the way many conventional farmers do) and you’ll be doing your bit for the birds, insects and animals who thrive in the naturally healthy environment of organic farms.
There’s lots going on this month to celebrate the wonderful world of organic produce. To keep up to date with all the latest news make sure you’re following the Soil Association on Twitter and Facebook. And if you’d like the chance to win one of three boxes of our award-winning chocolate truffles be sure to follow @BoojaBooja on Instagram too and post a picture of what you’re doing to Organic Your September (being sure to include #boojabooja and #organicseptember in your post).
Organic farming is different to conventional farming because artificial fertilisers are banned and farmers develop fertile soil by rotating crops and using compost, manure and clover. Organic farmers and food producers have to be able to demonstrate and prove that they are abiding by strict regulations in order to maintain their organic status. In the UK the body responsible for maintaining organic standards is the Soil Association. If you want to find out more about organic farming methods or how beauty products and textiles gain organic certification just check out their website here. And if you want to be sure that the food you’re buying and eating meets the highest organic standards, look for their logo.
Happy Organic September everyone!
