“I would like to see people more aware of where their food comes from. I would like to see small farmers empowered. I feed my daughter almost exclusively organic food.”

Organic Nature News is an e-magazine that was founded in 2003 for the sole purpose of bringing news and relevant information regarding the organic lifestyle to consumers. Any news that consumers can use to inform their lifestyle choices is important to us. The organics industry can be confusing, and many may not understand what it means to be “organic.” Are all products certified? Are all organic ingredients naturally derived and sustainable? What other ingredients can be used in organic products? Are organic products safer and healthier? These are some of the questions that we try to answer.
Not only can everyone embrace a more organic lifestyle, but it can be done without breaking the bank. There are a number of misconceptions about organic food, personal care, and services that we will try to dispel. After all, we’re all looking for the same thing – honest information and handy tips for making our lives as “organic” and “natural” as possible. A lifestyle that’s more in tune with the natural world is a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle. From food to clothing to furnishings, we can make informed choices about the products and services that can enhance our quality of life.
