The month of September marks ‘Organic September’ – a month declared to raise awareness of the many benefits of organic food and farming.

Taken from the Soil Association website, some of these benefits include:

  • Supporting biodiversity and wildlife
  • Helping to combat climate change
  • The highest standards of animal welfare
  • Reduced exposure to pesticides
  • Food as it should be, and food you can trust

Here in Teesside, there are plenty of eco-friendly shops and retailers offering environmentally conscious alternatives to produce found in everyday supermarkets.

In honour of Organic September, we’ve shared some of our favourites; all of which will help you do your bit when it comes to living more sustainably:
