With the amount of pesticides used in everyday farming, it's no wonder that more and more families are tempted to go organic but far too often this healthier option is out of the financial reach of many of us on a day to day basis. This month is Organic September in the UK, a campaign by the Soil Society
to celebrate and learn about all things organic. We take a look at how everyone in the family can enjoy organic products at affordable prices.
When we think 'organic' most of us think about food and drink but it's not just about what we put into
our bodies. Organic products range from make-up to shoes, clothing to baby products.Organic Babies
Why not start your baby off the way you hope to go on? Many companies offer luxurious baby gifts, toiletries and clothing all made from organic products and materials. Baby Elephant
offers not only general merchandise but also a beautiful organic hamper full of products for a mum and new baby, while Green People
offer natural skincare including body washes, suncream and lotions, with free delivery on your first order. Organic Beauty
It has been estimated that British women spend anywhere between £1000 and £3000 a year on
beauty and skin products but very few are certified organic. EyDirect
offers 100% chemical free, organic products that have also been approved by the Vegetarian and Vegan society. You can also save yourself 15% with our exclusive Body Shop voucher code
and treat yourself to a range of skincare and makeup that are also certified green.
There was a time when organic clothing meant rough fabrics and loose, unattractive designs that made even beautifully figured women look like a sack of potatoes. Today, ethical fashion has come a long way, mixing beautifully designed fashion with ethical awareness. Along with prices that match good quality High Street fashion, it's really not that difficult to move to a 'greener' alternative fashion brand, especially when we also have an extra 10% voucher code for top organic clothing company, Fashion Conscience
to save you even more.Organic Bags and Shoes
In the world of organic, eco-friendly accessories, hemp bags are stylish accessories that even the
most fashion aware amongst us can wear with pride. Sativa bags
offer a range of bags for every walk of life including handbags, purses, backpacks, luggage and even camera bags ranging in price from £10 to £100.
When it comes to footwear, there's still a lot of catching up to do but Simple Shoes
is on target with their 'Good, Better, Best' standard. They provide reasonably priced shoes that are made from sustainable materials and certified organic cotton.Organic Living
There are numerous companies, particularly online, who offer organic household items including furniture and home furnishings. Biome Lifestyle
offers free delivery with minimum order on everything from organic bedding to bathroom linens, while Spirit of Nature
has a huge range of organic cleaning products which cost practically the same as the regular products you can buy on the High Street. You can save even more on organic products for the home, including organic mattresses, when you shop with Eco Centric
who'll give you a 10% discount voucher just for registering with them.Organic Food
It always seems that organic produce is just so much more expensive than regular food and, in
today's economy, that's often enough to stop even the most eco-conscious of us from making this better choice. If you're still debating, why not make a start with Graze
boxes. These 'snack' boxes are pcked full of completely organic produce and delivered fresh to your door on the days that you choose. Perfect for snacking on during the day or even as a healthy lunch, what's even better is your first box is absolutely free and your second is half price.
Another company offering free organic food is Abel and Cole
, delicious 100% certified organic fruit, veg and meats delivered straight to your door. They are currently offering a voucher code
for a full box of produce worth up to £24 absolutely free.
Of course, mainstream supermarkets all offer organic foods including Tesco
and, as we're constantly posting new voucher codes for all of them, it's worth keeping an eye out and checking back so see if you can save enough money to eat organic all week!
