Here’s a little Toxic Fun…
The Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit organization, uses the power of public info to protect and preserve public health and the environment. In other words, they share scientific-based information with the public in order to make a difference!
Something I LOVE and use every time I go grocery shopping is their “EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce.“
The “Dirty Dozen” represents the fruits and veggies with the most pesticide residues. Unfortunately, some of my favorite fruits, like strawberries, are on the dirty list.
So…. what would someone like me do?? The EWG suggests that if you have the money, you should try to buy the “Dirty Dozen” organically.
On the other hand, the “Clean Fifteen” are the least contaminated. Ergo, this gives shoppers a fun and easy way to decide when to save money and when to splurge and buy organically.
And guess what??? I have an app for that!
Stay Tuned! More toxic information about pesticides will be discussed in a later post.
