Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Trusting where your food source comes from can be left to chance or a part of a learning process. In this 30-minute documentary about where our food comes from, follow a side of steak, an orange, and tomatoes on their trek from seed to your table. There is a reason Europe bans American beef. Find out why. Step by step we have the power to reduce the negative impact we have on the planet.

Scrub some natural face cleanser on at the end of the day. Feels wonderful. A shea butter body cream can only be good, right? Read the ingredients. Many of the cosmetics on the shelf today contain microbeads. What’s a microbead? I hadn’t heard of them either...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz:  Microbeads, tiny plastic beads, lurk in many health and beauty products. From toothpaste to body scrubs, these additives are making their way to destroying our rivers, oceans, and planet.

Our oceans are choking with plastic, reducing vast parts of the seas to toxic gyres of swirling trash that will last for thousands of years...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A call to action: Ask Huge Beauty Companies to stop dumping tiny plastic bits into the ocean. Consider the ramifications to our ecology balance all because we need to exfoliate our skin. There's an organic way to get gorgeous skin! Short term beauty will lead to long term damage.

 

Organic Living

"Just one 320-acre farm going organic equals 117 cars taken off of the road or 1,462,500 miles not driven!" That's the conclusion of Chris Hill and Greg Bowman, contributors to the Rodale Institute's NewFarm.org website which has been heavily involved in researching the impacts of conventional and organic farming...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Choosing organic has a deeper effect on our life than just healthy living. It has a gentler impact on our use of the planet's resources and leaves a smaller footprint behind.  Choosing organic has a deeper effect on our life than just healthy living.

Organic Living

The nation’s toxic chemical regulatory law, The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, allows chemicals on the market without meaningful safety assessments and gives the Environmental Protection Agency almost no authority to protect the public health...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A diet rich in organic food is a must to reduce the exposure to pesticides.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The growth of the organic market in the world does not mean it is a perfect system. Every year in America, 96 billion pounds of food are tossed out. Most of still good to eat. Yet, many go hungry. Organic food markets are not exempt from the rule of the expiration date. Everyone's tossing out what perhaps could be used to feed those who need, reducing the stress to create less new products in the first place. Dive! is a documentary film looking at the incredible way we waste food and solutions to end it.

 

Organic Living

Crossposted from the Worldwatch Institute’s Nourishing the Planet

 

Increasing demand for water continues to put a strain on available water sources, threatening the livelihood of millions of small-scale farmers who depend on water for their crops. At a time when one in eight people lack access to safe water, Nourishing the Planet points to low-cost, small-scale innovations to better manage this vital resource. 

 

Author's Note from Danielle Nierenberg: Agriculture accounts for 70% of humanity's freshwater use, and demand is growing in an age of unprecedented climate change in some of the world's most important food growing regions.

 

Organic Living


by Susan Lutz,
ATH Editor of Organic Living

At times, I pile the bags of food in my car after spending a boatload of money and feel lost. With all my research and knowledge of the world of organics, I should radiate confidence. Instead, I doubt my choices and wonder if I even make a difference in what I feed my family...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Buying food can be a confusing experience. Finding peace with our daily food choices was a mission I dove into to keep food on the table and peace in my mind.
