The beginning of a new year allows for starting anew on aspects of your life which you may find to need revamping. For many people, a popular and beneficial New Year’s resolution is to embark on a lifestyle change. These lifestyle changes can be simple and fun, but for some people, a change in their lifestyle is health related. A New Year’s resolution is something that you commit to for yourself, like a gift to start the new year right. If a lifestyle change to be healthier is your goal, why not resolve to live organically?
Living an organic lifestyle does not have to be a hard thing to accomplish. Following these organic living tips can help you on your way to a happier new year!
Saving Money On Organic Foods Don’t pay full price!
A good start to saving money on organic foods is by looking for coupons in weekly advertisements and booklets. Another way to get coupons is to sign up for mailing lists with your local grocer, natural food store, or Whole Foods. E-coupons are delivered directly to your inbox and you’ll be the first to know about sales. Also, look for lunch and dinner specials at restaurants serving organic.
Know How To Read Organic Labels
Understanding organic labels goes for both organic foods and organic clothing. “Organic” can mean consisting of eco-friendly materials, produced naturally, and free of toxins and harsh chemicals. Organic food labels must have a certified United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Organic Seal. Only food products labeled “100% organic” and “organic” are allowed this seal. Organic cotton clothing labels: 100% organically grown, undyed, unbleached cotton, and free from chemicals.
Grow Your Own Organic Vegetable Garden
A sure way to know your produce is organic and free of chemicals is to grow them yourself! Start planning your organic garden now for planting in the warmer spring months. Start a compost bin to convert organic food waste into a nutrient rich food for your vegetable garden. Read articles in Organic Gardening for more useful information.
