It's a great time for making healthier and more responsible choices about the foods we buy and eat.
Farmers' markets and providors are sprouting up everywhere, and even some supermarkets are responding to the demand by selling organic or local produce.
By shopping responsibly, you're letting supermarkets and food companies know what consumers want.
Here are a few ways to shop responsibly, sustainably and GE-free.
CHOOSE CERTIFIED ORGANIC FOOD
Organic farming is an environmentally friendly farming technique that produces safe, nutritious, healthy food.
To be certified as organic, producers must comply with strict rules that require the food to be free of pesticide residues, antibiotics and hormones.
All certified organic products are GE-free. By choosing organic foods (including meats, dairy and poultry), you avoid GE contamination of your food. Look for information on your food packets.
