Why Organic?

Twig is all about Organic. Here are 8 reasons why you should be too!

1. Reduce Toxic Load 

Buying organic promotes a less toxic environment for all living things. Keep chemicals out of air, water, soil, and our bodies. Synthetic fertilizer drifting downstream is the main culprit for dead zones in delicate ocean environments, such as the Gulf of Mexico.

2. Protect Future Generations

Studies show that infants are exposed to hundreds of harmful chemicals in utero. Numerous studies show that pesticides can adversely affect the nervous system, increase the risk of cancer, and decrease fertility.

3. Build Healthy Soil

Feeding the soil with organic matter instead of synthetic fertilizers has proven to increase nutrients in produce. Higher levels of vitamins and minerals have been found in organic food.

4. Assist Family Farmers

Family farms that are certified organic farms have a double economic benefit: they are profitable and they farm in harmony with their surrounding environment.

5. No Synthetic Growth or Breeding Hormones

Avoiding synthetic hormones (which are frequently given to conventional dairy and meat animals to alter reproductive cycles and speed up growth) means less stress for animals, and reduced human exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

6. No Antibiotics

Overuse of antibiotics in farm animals leads to the development of dangerous antibiotic-resistant infections.

7. Promote Biodiversty

 An organic farm is the equivalent of reforestation! 

8. Better Taste and Truer Flavor

Researchers actually proved that organic food tastes better. New research also verifies that some organic produce is often lower in nitrates and higher in antioxidants than conventional food. Put it to the test and BUY ORGANIC!
