Here's a few reasons to why we think choosing organic produce or organically grown ingredients may be of benefit. We are not saying it is the only choice or the best choice, but it is a choice of why we choose to use and have our products ACO Certified Organic.
The organic farming of fruits, vegetables and grains, is simply healthier, safer and proven better for us. It is better for the farms, environment, earth and natural resources used around farming. Farmers use natural predators and methods to control pests and a calculated rotation of crops each year to keep the soil rich, effective fertile. Crop rotation may also reduces soil erosion in some areas where drought or flooding conditions may be prevalent.
Organic farming allows life to prosper naturally and also reduces the carbon and greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere. With the reduction or usage of chemical pesticides used in growing herbs there is a cost of producing pure, unadulterated product and unaltered plant genetics - these plants when consumed give us maximum benefit, goodness and increase healthy cellular renewal in our body. In some cases organic produce also increases longevity, helps reduce the speed of diseases within our bodies and give us the best of nutrients to combat infections.
Therefore where possible we try to source ACO certified organic herbs and teas for our tea ingredients to give you maximum benefit. Some of our infusions may not be certified organic, yet most of the ingredients within these teas are organically grown and are 100% natural.
