When it comes to “green living” people tend to point to organic foods as the way to go. I’ve never really been a big supporter of organic foods. For one thing, the name always made me laugh; as if plants and animals from modern industrialized farming were made of something besides organic materials? It’s a connotation that non-organic foods were just that, NOT organic, and synthetic. Obviously that’s pretty absurd. But aside from that, I always thought of organic foods as an alternative, not necessarily always better one than typical food, but with various tradeoffs. To me, if you wanted to be conscious of the environment and act sustainably, it was more important to buy local than buy organic. So I came across this great article from Scientific America (http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/science-sushi/2011/07/18/mythbusting-101-organic-farming-conventional-agriculture/) that really lays out the facts behind organic foods, and can help someone compare the tradeoffs associated with organic foods.
