In the US, â??certified organicâ?means that a manufacturerâ??s products meet strictly defined organicstandards set by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). Organic farmingeliminates many of the harmful chemicals that don’t just pollute the foodthat we eat, but can leak into our water supply and contaminate the airthat we breathe. Organic methods are just more environmentally friendly allaround. There have also been no genetic modifications to any products thatare listed as Certified Organic. Just look for the seal.
