How many times have you heard : "Bio is only for the rich !" Or " Ecology is only marketing! "? Undoubtedly countless times. In order to restore the truth, ME Moringa for Life decided to fight all these clichés on bio.
1. Eating organic means respecting the planet
By excluding chemicals, organic farming preserves soil and the environment. The varieties of fruits and vegetables are also adapted to the soil where they are grown and are thus less water-hungry. In such circumstances, respect for the seasons is paramount. And, unlike intensive livestock farming where livestock is mainly fed with corn or soy, plants whose crops require too much water and release nitrates into the wild, ecological farming favors pasture.
2. Eating organic is rediscovering the "true" taste of food
Even if they do not necessarily look very good, fruits and vegetables produced according to the organic standard are tastier. Harvested at a stage of maturity more advanced than in conventional agriculture - where the systematic use of pesticides alters the taste of food - they are more concentrated in flavorings. Same for meat and fish; Practices and slaughter conditions in industrial farming generate stress in the affected animals to the point of affecting the nutritional value and tenderness of their flesh.
3. Eating organic is defending an ethical society
Consuming organic means also conforming to the rules of fair trade and the principle of proximity. Transport is indeed an important cause of greenhouse gas emissions. By producing locally and reducing packaging to a minimum, the organic food industry significantly limits pollution. Short distribution channels are not only a guarantee of quality and economy for the consumer (less intermediaries minus the product is expensive on arrival) but offer producers a sustainable source of income (usually trimmed by the margins of conventional dispensers).
