Why choose organic?
Organic means working with nature. It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment, which means more wildlife.
Whatever you’re buying – from cotton buds to carrots – when you choose organic food, drink or beauty and textiles, you choose products that promote a better world.
Organic food comes from trusted sources. All organic farms and food companies are inspected at least once a year and the standards for organic food are laid down in European law.
What makes organic different?
Almost 300 pesticides can be routinely used in non-organic farming and are often present in non-organic food.
NO ARTIFICIAL COLOURS & PRESERVATIVES
Hydrogenated fats and controversial artificial food colours and preservatives are banned under organic standards.
ALWAYS FREE RANGE
Organic means the very highest standards of animal welfare & animals reared without the routine use of drugs, antibiotics & wormers.
BETTER FOR WILDLIFE
Organic farms are havens for wildlife and provide homes for bees, birds and butterflies – there is up to 50% more wildlife on organic farms!
IT’S NUTRITIONALLY DIFFERENT
Research published in the British Journal of Nutrition found significant differences between organic and non-organic farming.
NO ROUTINE USE OF ANTIBIOTICS
In organic farming systems, animals are reared without the routine use of drugs, antibiotics and wormers common in intensive livestock farming.
BETTER FOR THE PLANET
No system of farming does more to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture and protect natural resources.
NO GM INGREDIENTS
+1 million tonnes of GM crops are imported each year to feed non-organic livestock. Organic animals can’t be fed on GM feed.
Look for the logo
Going organic is easier than you’d think. Food, health, beauty and textiles products that hold the Soil Association organic symbol have been produced to the highest possible animal welfare and environmental standards.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent.
