Good news to start off a Friday from Nancy, your Renegade Nutritionist
Most of you know how much certain things mean to me, such as protecting our bees, safeguarding our environment, and living an organic lifestyle.
I am not that easily impressed, but there is a supermarket called Aldi, that is known for its low prices, and they have done something that is extraordinary.
Aldi is removing all products that contain neonicotinoid pesticides. (If you remember, I had a petition against the EPA to ban the manufacturing and use of neonicotinoid pesticides, because they are decimating the environment and killing the bees and butterflies. The EPA has still not banned them, even though the Federal Courts ruled that they should.
The EPA has even admitted knowing that the following poisons are the major reason the bee populations are being destroyed:
Aldi is not only doing this environmentally-positive action of removing all products that contain the neonicotinoid pesticides, but they are also committing their Aldi grocery stores to be all organic by May 1, 2017.
Hooray for this ethical company that is doing the right thing for all of us.
They are a no-frills store with positive goals and reasonable prices, which may make organic food affordable for everyone.
I’m giving them my gold star of approval.
Here is the link to read my information about the bees, the neonicotinoids and the environment.
Also be aware as you are buying plants for your garden this spring, that the plants and fruit trees, etc. may have these toxic poisons in them. Ask your nursery to be sure.
One way to order organic plants without toxins, is to order them online from a respected company like Seeds of Change, an organic seed and plant company.
