Soil Association launches Organic September to champion ‘30 days for nature, climate and health’

Written by: David Foad
Running until September 30th, Organic September is a month-long celebration of organic farming, food, drink, beauty products and clothes organised by the Soil Association.

A spokesman said: “In the face of climate change, diet related ill-health and widespread decline in wildlife, the need to change our food systems has never been greater. As more of us are seeking to make choices to minimise our impact on the planet, organic can offer a simple, trusted way to be more sustainable in our daily lives.

“There are so many ways people can be involved with the organic movement this September, from learning more about organic and agro-ecological ways of producing food and sharing this knowledge with friends and family, to supporting organic farmers in local communities and learning to grow your own at home.

“Covid-19 has shaken our complacency about where our food comes from to the core. But more than ever, citizens are appreciating the world we live in and the fragility of our existence in it.  Research shows that people do not want to just let things return to how they were, and citizens want to make choices that will support people, animals and our environment.”
