For many American consumers today, the ethics of a company and their environmental impact is more important than the cost of the product. Consumers want to know where their products come from, what’s in them, how their food was grown and what the product’s impact is on the environment.
A recent report conducted by the Organic Trade Association shows a steady increase in demand for organic products, including food and beverage, organic fiber, cosmetics and household products. In 2011, sales in the American organic industry rose by almost 10 percent, to $31.5 billion, while sales of conventionally produced products only rose by 4.7 percent.
Today, there are over 17,600 certified organic farms, ranches and businesses, stretched across all 50 states. Certified organic businesses are prohibited from the use of synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, food additives, genetically modified organisms, irradiation and biosolids. Synthetic pesticides have long been linked to health disorders, including cancer, autism, ADHD and infertility, among a vast list of other health issues. Chemical fertilizers have also been named for the destruction of water ecosystems and the contamination of naturally balanced soils, which destroys beneficial microorganisms.
