Excellent Article about Organic Products…and if they are really organic

Official seal of the National Organic Program

A link on my Facebo0k page led me to this VERY informative article on the Bubble and Bee blog about how to tell if a product is really organic.  One thing that really stood out for me is the illegal use of the USDA organic seal on websites, but not on the product.

The example she gives is a banner with the USDA badge, the badge from Cruelty Free and Vegan and some others.  Across the top in small print there’s the words, “Our Partners”.  There is no such thing.  A company has to be certified by the USDA, that’s how they can use the badge.

This is just an example, the rest of the article is just as interesting.  Bravo!
