A Seasonal Toxic 20 Bounty
So a very exciting Bounty launch that is close to our hearts and the reason behind why we started this business more than 10 years ago!
Some of you may have heard of the EWG's "Dirty Dozen" and their "Clean 15" but what you might not know is that this is an American organisation and it really isn't relevant to our own unique Farmland biodiversity. So while we are fully behind educating communities on the "clean" & "dirty" fruit and veggies we need to be taking into account the location of these produce items.
So because everything we do is an "all or nothing" situation and we fully empathise with the fact that eating an all organic diet is not always attainable for financial or accessibility reasons, we decided to do the research ourselves. We have come up with our own in-house Toxic 20 list that are best to avoid if you are doing a mix of organic and conventional produce. While we just dont have the pools of data that the U.S have to reach their findings what we do have is at least taken from our own environment and the diverse and varying factors that differ to Americas. We found the following reports the most up to date, accurate and relevant in regards to formulating the following list for our own reference and to help inform our community with more accurate and relevant information.
25th Australian Total Diet Study
The Dose makes the Poison
The Choice - Strawberries and Pesticides
While this list and the research involved has proven useful to our over all understanding and a great reference point, we advise you to draw your own conclusions from the links above based on your own unique needs, experience and circumstances.
Our new Toxic 20 box will be full of the product items listed above so you can rest assured that the most toxic produce items in Australia are not landing on your doorstep and you can feel confident when buying the remaining items required conventionally.
