The kitchen is the room in the house where most people start transitioning to organic products. Consumers may start buying organic perishables such as fruit, vegetables, milk, eggs and meat, and non-perishables such as rice, pasta, grains and seeds. Superfoods are also becoming highly popular, including chia seed, hemp seed, coconut oil, goji berries and more.
Other organic products throughout the home are becoming commonplace, whether sold in natural health food stores or traditional supermarkets and pharmacies. These include hair products, skin products and even personal care such as organic lubricants. There’s a growing consensus that putting petroleum-based products in the sensitive areas of the body can contribute to health issues.
Organic clothing and bedding have greatly increased in popularity and demand the last number of years. From organic cotton socks to organic baby clothing to organic bedsheets and pillowcases, consumers want to wear and sleep in products that aren’t loaded with inorganic chemicals. Home gardeners are enjoying products such as organic fertilizers to create sustainable, organic food forests.
