Choose Life Choose Organic this May and WIN
The types of products you purchase make a statement about many things.
What you purchase sends a message to your family and friends about how you wish to be perceived, to yourself about your own self worth and to producers and companies on the types of products you wish to consume.
When you purchase an item, you generally have several options to choose from.
Take eggs for example.
You can purchase eggs laid by hens housed in cages, barns or free range hens fed an organic diet.
When you purchase cage eggs, you're simply sending a message to egg farms that you're happy for them to continue to provide cage eggs for your consumption. Likewise, if you choose organic, free-range eggs, you're telling the farmers of free range chickens to keep up their efforts in providing organic, free-range eggs.
When you buy organic, you're telling producers not to use chemicals, to care for our soils, animals and indeed workers involved in producing the product. You're telling the world just what kind of an ecoceptionalTM world you want.
This May we're eco challenging YOU to "Choose Life, Choose Organic" for your chance to WIN one of two Gaia Organic Cotton $100 gift vouchers to spend as you please in their online store.
Gaia Organic Cotton is Australia's original organic cotton baby and children's clothing company. Created 13 years ago by Director and Designer Annette Francis, the quality and philosophy of Gaia Organic Cotton remained unchanged over time.
