Organic covers what non-GMO labels can't 

Non-GMO labeling is a great start, but it's only a start, because non-GMO labeling doesn't always account for things organic certification bans: toxic pesticides, dangerous (but still widely used) herbicides like glyphosate, sewage sludge… Not a pretty picture. 

Going certified organic is the easiest way to avoid GMOs—and a long list of other worries.

When “more expensive” costs everyone less 

Organic certification requires farmers & suppliers to meet more requirements than big agribusiness does. Extra work and attention can mean additional cost at retail. 

Cheaper conventional products ignore the costs their shortcuts pass on to us in other ways: additional health care, environmental damage, economic stress on struggling rural communities, subsidies for mono-cropping systems, etc.

Buying organic buys us all so much more.
