10 REASONS TO GO GREEN
1. Support sustainable farming practices
Which are in harmony with nature. Preservation of soil, together with crop rotation, cultivates a fertile and nutrient rich environment which in turn encourages biodiversity.
Chemical avoidance protects our ecosystem. Insects, birds, frogs and soil organisms all have an important part to play. Bees are losing their role at an alarming rate. The greatest modern scientist of our time once prophetically stated:
“Mankind will not survive the honeybees’ disappearance for more than 5 years” Albert Einstein
Support sustainability and bring back the bees!
2. Buying organic is better for you and the environment!
Organically grown foods have more nutrients as the soil is well nourished, rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and micronutrients. Furthermore when you buy from Greenheart Organics, you reduce your carbon footprint by not using fuel to purchase goods from retailers.You reduce the use of packaging materials and plastic bags and generate less waste. We use a refill, rebate & return system which means you maximize quality and minimize waste.
3. Save money
Going organic does not have to cost you more. Besides saving yourself a trip (and the fuel) to the supermarket you are spending less money on impulse buys. Furthermore you will receive a rebate each time you return your used, empty containers to us!
4. Buy fresh, nutritious & delicious food
Choose real food for you and for your family. Our produce is fresher as it is picked from the ground the day before delivery and does not sit on shop shelves for days or weeks before purchase. It also tastes better than store bought produce as it has not been boxed, shipped, stored or ripened with agents to ready them aesthetically for the supermarket shelf.
Studies have found that organic fruit & veg deliver 20-60% higher anti-oxidant activity than non-organic produce and organic heirloom varieties especially, are cultivated for taste over appearance and preserve agricultural diversity.
5. Save time
With the convenience of an online store and delivery service who source and pick the best quality produce and products on your behalf. Less time spent shopping + more productivity + more quality family time + more time to plan and prep delicious meals = just order online!
6. Have peace of mind.
Avoid processed foods, artificial flavour enhancers, food colourants, preservatives, excess sugar & salt, GMO’s and all the rest of the unwelcome additives which clutter our food isles and confuse our bodies.
Choose natural wholesome down to earth goodness.
7. Support and empower your local community
Take a stand against monoculture by saying NO to large scale unsustainable agricultural practices which are contaminating our environment, poisoning our precious water supplies and destroying our valuable farmlands.
Support your local farmer and empower your local community by choosing locally and ethically sourced food.
8. Support animal welfare.
Organic farms foster animals in a humane and ethical manner. Animals are grass fed and are not subjected to unnecessary hormones, routine antibiotics and growth stimulants. It goes without saying, if the animals you choose to consume are healthier and happier, you will be too…
9. Live by example.
The small choices we make today will have a significant impact on the choices our children will make, and the world they will live in.
