Even the String is Organic
We are continuing to enjoy Organic September here in Framar Health and have been so encouraged by the pioneering work of Pukka. We sell a range of their organic supplements and delicious teas (even the string on each teabag is organic!) and we are so impressed with their attitude towards being green, "We all have a responsibility to look after this beautiful planet. It’s why all our teas and wellbeing supplements are 100% organic – even the string on each tea bag is organic. It’s also why we donate 1% of all our turnover directly to environmental projects ... At Pukka Herbs, we believe that organic brings people together with plants, and plants with people, for the good of everyone. It’s this exchange of goodness that makes organic principles so special to us."
What are the benefits of organic food and farming?
Less of the bad stuff - Over 320 pesticides can be routinely used in non-organic farming and are often present in non-organic food
Knowing what’s in your food - Food labelled as organic must meet a strict set of standards which define what farmers and food manufacturers can and cannot do in its production. Because being organic means being fully traceable, we know all our farmers and have even helped many of them go through organic and Fair for Life conversion
Kinder to animals - Organic means the very highest standards of animal welfare. Organic animals are truly free range and are reared without the routine use of drugs, antibiotics and wormers
Better for our planet - No system of farming does more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture, or protect natural resources like fresh water and healthy soils
Better for you - Research published in the British Journal of Nutrition found significant differences between organic and non-organic farming
Combating climate change - The impact of switching to organic farming could save 64 million tonnes of carbon over 20 years across all UK cultivated land - the equivalent of taking nearly a million family cars off the road
Better for wildlife - Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds and butterflies – there is up to 50% more wildlife on organic farms As the great Mahatma Ghandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”. Well, switching to just one extra organic item really can help contribute to changing our food system for the better. Demand for more organic food means more organic farms. More organic farms mean fewer pesticides, more wildlife and more animals raised under the very highest standards
Switching to just one extra organic item really can help contribute to changing our food system for the better. So what will you choose today?
