1. Always check for a Certified Organic Logo

This above logo is one of a few bodies that give organic certification to companies for following strict guidelines on their farming and products. A few other bodies are The Soil Association Organic Standard, EcoCert, COSMOS, Natrue & BioGro (NZ).

For more information and photos of these bodies please check out our blog posts Organic September 2021: A Guide to Organic Beauty and Organic September 2021: A Guide to Organic Food.

Or why not check out our collection pages Certified Organic Beauty and Certified Organic Food, where we have done all the hard work for you so you can just browse knowing you are only looking at certified and trusted products and brands.

2. Order your organic fruit and vegetables online

Why not make life easier for yourself by ordering your fruit and vegetables online from an organic farm? This way you don't need to check any labels and you can eat your food knowing it is much better for your health and well being. A few popular organic fruit and vegetable delivery companies: Riverford Organics, Abel and Cole and perhaps you even have a local fruit and veg delivery near you.

3. Grow your own fruit and vegetables

By growing your own fruit and vegetables you will be able to manage what goes into the soil and on your food. You don't need a lot of land to get started, perhaps you may even want to start by growing your own herbs as they only take up a small amount of space or grow some potatoes in a bag. If you then feel like this is something you want to continue, but do not have the space in your garden or do not own a garden, why not enquire about a plot at your local allotments.

4. Post about Organic September on your social media

By posting on social media platforms you will be creating more awareness about what it means to choose organic produce, to an audience that may not be educated or need a little reminder why choosing organic is important. Why not create your own post and content with hashtag #organicseptember or even share some of The Kind Store's posts and simple guides? Something like this will only take a few minutes, but may have a huge impact.

5. The Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen

There are 12 foods that are prone to absorbing pesticides the most and must be bought organic. These have been named the Dirty Dozen:

  • Celery, sweet bell peppers, spinach  peaches, strawberries, apples, blueberries, nectarines, kale, collard greens, cherries, potatoes, imported grapes & lettuce

There are also foods that you do not need to buy organic, as they have a thick skin that we peel off and these are called the Clean Fifteen. These are:

  • Onions, avocados, sweetcorn, pineapples, mango, sweet peas, asparagus, kiwi fruit, cabbage, eggplant, cantaloupe, watermelon, grapefruit, sweet potatoes & sweet onions. 

Please note, these are based on US data.

6. Sign up to The Soil Association newsletter

You will receive practical tips on how to choose more wisely and mindfully when it comes to organic products and produce including organic discounts and savings. Plus, ways you could get involved to help fund raise in your community and much more.

7. Volunteer on an Organic Farm

With covid easing and with us being able to travel a little more freely, why not combine your next trip with helping out on an organic farm and gaining more first-hand knowledge on what it means to be organically certified. Check out Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms.

8. Support organic restaurants and chefs

Soil Association have created an award for restaurants that buy a percentage of their food from certified organic suppliers so look out for the Organic Served Here Award certificate. These restaurants make sure to source good quality, sustainable and organic ingredients for their menu. Perhaps Find An Organic Restaurant local to you that you could support this September.

9. Choose Organic Wine

If you like to drink wine, why not see if you can find an organic wine in your local supermarket. As people have become more and more aware of how much better food and drink is for you when it has been organically sourced and certified, supermarkets have begun to widen their range of organic wines. If you give it a go, you might even find that you prefer it! One of our favourites is Artigianale Natural Prosecco (not certified organic but made with organic principles, plus it's vegan and made with renewable energy etc.)

10. Make a small organic switch

You don't have to go organic in a day or even in a month, but making these little switches it will make a big difference. You may decide to start by just choosing organic on your essentials like potatoes, broccoli or apples. But whatever you do, don't scare yourself away from organic by setting big goals, the little steps are what lead to the biggest impact.

  • My name is Hailey Garcia and I am from New Jersey. My herpes virus turned to war after 2 years of living with it. I have tried different medical procedures to cure my herpes but to no avail. Most people think herpes is only a minor skin irritation of which herpes has long term effects on health and passes through the bloodstream and can be easily contracted through sexual intercourse. I knew I had herpes from the first day I started feeling itchy in my pubic area and the pain was very unbearable. I couldn’t stand it anymore. After 2 years of trying other means to get rid of it, I had to contact Doctor Odunga to help me with a permanent cure. I saw his email and whats-app number from a testimony I read online from a lady who was also helped by him in curing infertility problems, I had faith and contacted him. He assured me of his work and I ordered his herbal medicine. Within 5 days, I didn’t feel any pain anymore and within 2 weeks, my skin was all cleared and smooth. I am very grateful to you sir and I write this testimony as others have done to bring those having faith to you sir. If you have herpes or other similar disease and you want it cured, kindly contact Doctor Odunga, Whats-App (wa.me/+2348167159012) OR Email odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

  • I am a very happy woman with the help of Dr Krish Spiritual who helped me restore my relationship with my ex husband. My name is Agnes Smith and I am from Alaska, USA. I met Dr Krish Spiritual through a testimony online and I never thought I would have my ex husband back after 4 years of separation. After my contact with his email, he told me not to worry and I would really be happy as I am now. Trusting in his words was the right decision for me. After 2 days, my ex husband called me saying that he wants to return back to me and live with me forever and I was very shocked. This made me believe that Dr Krish is really a very great spiritual man. Today, I am very happy to write this testimony about him and want others to testify to his power as I am currently happy in my restored marriage. Don’t waste time on that relationship problem. Contact Dr Krish Spiritual directly through his email at lordkrishshrine@gmail.com to help you solve that relationship problems in your marriage

  • Read this!!!

    I made millions through lottery spells with the help of Doctor Odunga. I contacted Doctor Odunga through his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com to perform a spell for me to win the Powerball Lottery in Florida. After I contacted him, he replied to me and said I should only pay $200 for the spell and I should trust in him. It was hard at first to let my money go but I had to keep faith. I was surprised when he gave me the winning numbers to play the Saturday Powerball Lottery. I bought the ticket and truly speaking, the winning numbers emerged from the Powerball numbers and I was the winner of the lottery. I won $535.4 Million USD as the Powerball Lottery Winner. I am very happy to share this testimony of Doctor Odunga and want you too to meet him at his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats-app +2348167159012

  • Finally!!! I am the happiest woman to be called a mother soon. I am saying this because I am very grateful to Dr. Odunga for helping me with my relationship problems faced in my marriage due to the issues of infertility after 7 years of marriage. My husband and I have tried so many options for a successful fertility including IVF but it was futile. My husband’s family have said different abusive words to me and my husband and he almost stopped loving me after many years of marriage without a child from me. It was a long time of sorrow for me and it affected me mentally. Dr. Odunga was introduced to me by a friend whom he helped and that was how I contacted Dr Odunga at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and within 2 days of contact, he did the spell and I successfully conceived after sleeping with my husband as he said. It was very surprising and overwhelming with joy and still unbelievable because I have been seeing testimonies of spell casters but never believed I would be helped by one. Dr. Odunga is indeed a great spell caster. Get in contact with this man to help you solve your problems at odungaspelltemple@gmail.com or Whats App his phone number at +2348167159012
