Organic products have been the latest and greatest rage on the rise for the past decade. The demand is huge for our most-used and most-consumed products to “go green” and and drop the GMO’s and chemicals. Companies, new and established, are putting constant effort into creating the best, environmentally friendly, and certified organic products on the market — with no end in sight.
The most popular organic products on the market today are food. In general, the public is looking towards choosing healthier foods like organic foods because they are as convenient as ever. These days organic food can be found in drug stores and bodegas just as easily as they are found in health food stores such as Whole Foods. Once just an aisle or two, grocery stores are now devoting more of their space to serve the organic needs of consumers.
But what about non-food organic products?
We’re seeing more organic offerings out there, from bed sheets to Chap-Stick, and the list grows daily with more committed manufacturers, farmers, and producers on the rise, as well. So how far have the organic fingers reached, thus far?
The following are eight organic, everyday products that you may not be aware of:
