The Natural Hoax:
Natural Does NOT Equal Organic 

Some manufacturers want you to think “natural” is better than organic. Don’t be fooled.

Organic agriculture always starts from the ground up — building living soils as the foundation of a healthy planet, healthy animals, and healthy people.

Organic foods are ALWAYS third-party certified to comply with strict, far-ranging USDA organic regulations. “Natural” foods are NOT.

Don’t be fooled by the “natural” label.

If your personal health, the environment, and a more sustainable future for everyone are important to you, look for the organic seal.
