Welcome to the giving season! 2022 is almost here and it’s time to give back to organic!
2021 ended up being an amazing year for the organic movement. Thanks to you, we’ve seen a steady increase year after year as consumers learn about the health and environmental benefits of choosing organic. This year we highlighted studies, news, and wrote several blogs explaining how important it is to skip the chemicals and just go with organic here.
In fact, the organic global market is expected to reach $519 billion by 2027 from $232 billion in 2021, according to a recent report. “by 2030, organic sales will account for 16% to 25% of total produce sales, suppliers said, with most thinking organic sales could represent 22% to 25% of sales by then,” according to a recent Packer article. And during “during the third quarter of 2021, total organic sales dollars increased by 3.4% compared with the same quarter of the previous year, according to the Organic Produce Network, Category Partners and Nielsen.”
Growth in the organic sector is exciting but we know that consumers are still confused when it comes to organic. This is where Only Organic comes in. We work hard to educate consumers about all things organic and highlight the more than 700 chemicals that are prohibited from us in organic, making the choice to buy organic that much easier.
With your support, we were able to launch THREE fun, and informative Skip the Chemicals videos this year! Have you seen them?
These videos have garnered more than 21 MILLION views combined, including many from informed consumers like you, who are looking for the healthiest and safest option at the grocery store and beyond. We’ve also managed to trend the hashtag #SkipTheChemicals nationally three times this year.
We have also brought together our community to host many informative and engaging Twitter parties, Instagram takeovers with old and new friends, giveaways with wonderful prizes, newsletters, contests, blogs and so much more.
But we would not be able to do this work without YOU! Please consider giving back to organic with your tax-deductible gift today. Every cent will go straight toward our work spreading the truth about organic.
