The Organic Center Bows Consumer Website
The Organic Center (TOC), a research institute focused on the science of organic food and farming, has launched a website, www.generationsoforganic.org, to serve as an online resource for consumers seeking easy-to-understand information on the benefits of organic.
The site’s content draws on credible, evidence-based science, according to the Boulder, Colo.-based nonprofit. Among its features:
- All About Organic offers simple, straightforward facts about organic, including sections on “Organic vs. Natural” and “The Facts about GMOs”
- In the Kitchen includes recipes from Sara Snow, green-lifestyle expert and author, as well as from TOC staffers, while a section on shopping tips offers the article “10 money-saving tips when buying organic”
- Heath and Nutrition contains information on food nutrients and pesticides, along with a selection of TOC’s two-page science summaries based on in-depth science reports. Full reports are available at www.organic-center.org
- Organic Stories shines the spotlight on leaders in the organic movement, displays photos from organic farms and farmers, and eventually will provide a timeline illustrating the history of organic in the United States
- News Exchange will help visitors keep up to date on the latest topics of interest in the organic community
- The site will additionally help visitors connect with The Organic Center on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
“With the launch of www.generationsoforganic.org -- a ‘sister’ site to The Organic Center’s primary site -- we will engage with people at all points on the learning curve regarding the many advantages of organic food and farming, and educate them on how organics contribute to a healthy lifestyle,” noted TOC executive director Joan Boykin.
