Did you know Canada.. today is the start of Organic Week, taking place from October 15-22.
At the heart of Organic Week it is the national celebration that came as a response to the changes in the Canadian organic standards. When you see products displaying the Canada Organic Logo, you know they are, in fact, organic. Canada’s Organic Standards are maintained by organic stakeholders including farmers, processors, organic experts and consumer advocates, under the auspices of the Canadian General Standards Board.
Visit Organic Week's Facebook page to take the Breakfast Challenge. Upload a picture of your organic breakfast, share a recipe, story, quick grab and go idea, it all goes! Participants stand to win organic goodies from well known names such as: Organic Meadow, Nature's Path, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods and Oils, Wholesome Sweeteners, FD Organics, Taste of Nature, Earthbound Farm, & Kicking Horse Coffee.
Organic week will also be supporting Foodstock, another amazing Canadian Event!!
Canada’s National Organic Week is the largest annual celebration of organic food, farming and products across the country. Hundreds of individual events showcase the benefits of organic agriculture and its positive impact on the environment. Organic represents a vibrant alternative food system and an alternative option for clothing, personal care and cleaning products.
