Organic Fortnight 3-17 September 2010 Choose organic everyday
Soil Association Organic Fortnight, is the UK’s biggest celebration of all things organic. This year we are encouraging you to try something organic everyday and have provided some great ideas below.
Get involved during the fortnight and discover why organic is good for your well-being and your planet, is kind to animals and wildlife and allows us make a big difference – simply through the way we shop.
There are lots of everyday enjoyable things you can do to get involved – visit an organic farm, try your hand at learning a new skill at the Soil Association Organic Farm School, treat yourself to an organic holiday, look out for organic clothes on your high street, switch one of your beauty products to organic or cook up an organic feast on a budget for your friends with help from our top tips.
For advice on making your shopping basket work harder and how to shop organic for less, have a read of our guides to buying organic on a budget. Switch one of your everyday beauty products to organic or buy an item of clothing made from UK organic wool or organic cotton.
