Going organic makes your kitchen greener, protects your family from chemicals and helps to preserve the health of the planet. Depending on where you live, going organic can be challenging.
Believe it or not, one way you can make the switch to organic foods and products more easily is by using your iPhone, Android phone or tablet. Many apps are now available to help you lead a more organic life, and we gathered together a few of our favorites to share with you.
When you log into Organic Life from home, the app will automatically find your location and populate lists of organic businesses
around you. Then, you can view lists of organic restaurants, organic grocery stores, organic cosmetics shops and spas and organic food suppliers in your area. The lists tell you how far away each business is from your location, and you can touch one to learn more about the business, read reviews of it and even find discounts and coupons.
This app is a must-have when you're doing your grocery shopping at a regular supermarket. By typing in the code shown on the stickers that appear on all fruits and veggies at your local grocer, you can find out what type of produce you're looking at and whether or not it's organic or GM-modified. You can also reverse search by typing in the name of the food.
This app uses your location to pull up a list of the nearest organic farms that sell directly to the public. You can also convert the list to a map to get driving directions.
