It’s Organic, Don’t You Know?

It’s the buzzword of the moment, but why should you make the switch? Sassy Mama and Mini Exchange give you the lowdown…

Long gone are the days when the ‘Organic’ tag just belonged to pretty fruit and veg. Nowadays it’s a booming industry spanning every aspect of our lives; from beauty and health to food and even household.

Let’s face it, we all want to be part of the Organic club. It just fits so nicely with our wholesome ‘body like a goddess, hair like a supermodel, total #mamaboss ruling life’ aspirations!

That said, you’re probably already using Organic products without really realising. Think about it… that lush smelling hand cream in your bag? Probably Organic. Your favourite brand of baby food? Well known and loved for its organic messaging.

See, you’re practically a closet Organic fanatic! But, why should you look at going Organic in the first place? Sure, it’s a buzzword which will give you kudos, but what are the actual benefits to making the switch? We’re so glad you asked…

  1. No Added Nasties: This one is huge when it comes to feeding you and your family. Baby food with no added additives or preservatives are now the go-to choice for mums with Rudolfs and Nurturme leading the way with wholesome options.
  2. The Skin Factor: This one is a no brainer; Organic products aren’t made up of the chemicals found in traditional cosmetics. Your skin therefore is treated to a purer experience that won’t aggravate you in the long run.
  3. It’s Environmentally Friendly: There’s so much to consider with every beauty purchase we make today, especially if we’re eco-conscious. Organic beauty alleviates some of these concerns- no chemicals going down the drain with every use, natural ingredients sourced from eco-suppliers and if the packaging is recyclable too, then you are a true eco Mama.
  4. Better for Animals & You: Organic produce is treated to a higher standard of living with a closely regulated diet, which ultimately means your end product is cleaner, leaner and better for you. Happy animal = happy you.
  5. Improve Your Health: Pesticides are, on the one hand a necessary evil to allow large scale farming production, however the downside is the ample amounts ending up in our food. This can, when exposed to large doses over time, encourage weight gain and even diabetes. Always read the label.

‘If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.’ You’re probably aware of the social media campaign that’s tearing its way around the world - women have encountered harassment in all forms  and suffered in silence for too long. This is the time to confront the belittlement and stand united. For ourselves, for our friends, our sisters, mothers, daughters - for anyone we know who may be suffering. #metoo

Today is International Day Of The Girl - a UN created initiative to ensure more opportunity for girls and to increase awareness of gender inequality faced by girls worldwide - including the right to education, nutrition, legal rights, medical care, and protection from discrimination and violence. This day is also about celebrating girls and all that females have achieved. We say a huge YES to that and to empowering girls and promoting gender equality today and everyday 💪🏻 How do you find raising girls in a world which still falls back on gender stereotypes, mamas?
