Organic September

15 Sep

It’s that time again: time to get our your muddy carrots and wave them around to celebrate The Soil Association’s Organic September. Why? Well, shopping organic means less chemicals in your system, a happier environment, better animal welfare, protected wildlife and no GMs. And you can’t say fairer than that. Here are EggMag’s picks for enjoying organic in all aspects of your life.

Having just popped in to visit their new store in Devonshire Square, London, Planet Organic have indelibly inked themselves in as our favourite whole foods retailer. This new shoppy, in particular, tickles our fancy with its amazingly clean water bar courtesy of Pure H2O and it’s large selection of organic beers and wines. Try the Sam Smiths Organic Lager (£2.19 per bottle). They also have a large beauty section, selling such delights as John Masters hair care. (The Honey and Hibiscus Hair Reconstructing Shampoo, £27 for 177ml is a dream for post-holiday hair). And, of course, you can peruse their large selection of food or have a meal from their astonishingly good lunch bar (hot and cold).

The Duke of CambridgeTHE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE
This is the UK’s only certified organic gastropub. Everything you buy here is organic and it’s a treat. Set in the residential backstreets of Islington (London) enjoy the large airy space, an incredible selection of natural drinks and a mouth-watering seasonal menu to boot. Find it here.

Mudd & Water breton top from Fashion ConscienceFASHION CONSCIENCE
Probably the biggest and best retailer specialising in ethical fashion, this online shop has plenty of pieces to choose from that are made with organic fabrics. From shirts to trousers via shoes and back, you name it, they stock it. We are loving this Mudd & Water organic cotton breton-style tee, £44.85.
