Buy organic whenever possible
Organic crops are crops that are not treated with harmful chemicals. They’re better for your health too. However, it’s not always feasible to buy organic. Check into the dirty dozen, which includes items like apples and strawberries which have a heavy use of pesticides and other chemicals.
Cotton is another product that should ideally be organic. The cotton industry is one of the most harmful industries. “Cotton covers 55% of the world’s cultivated land and uses 75% of the world’s insecticides, more than any other single major crop.” (Source: Organic Trade Association)
You can make a difference in the clean air in the world around you. Small changes to your habits and your lifestyle do have an impact.
