Hi, this is Anny, welcome to Eco Shop.
I saw a piece of news years ago mentioned that more than 50 farm workers were infertile due to years of exposure to pesticides. None of the workers could have kids and some even suffered from cancer. Organic farming is a method that is beneficial to the earth, farm workers and the end consumers. Without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers, the farmland will become more rich in nutrients and more sustainable. Farmers do not need to risk their health or the next generation because of making money for living. We who eat agricultural products do not have to worry about excessive pesticides affecting our health.
I always wish to support organic farming. Just imagine if all land is contaminated with fertilizers and pesticides, the further generation will be facing a predicament. There is no clean land, no clean water and no clean / pesticide free food. The living environment is getting worse. In modern urban life, apart from foods containing pesticides, MSG, pigments, and preservatives, our daily necessities such as toothpaste, facial cleansers, shampoos, body washes, skin care products, lipsticks, etc. contain a lot of chemicals. The Consumer Council of Hong Kong also provides some test reports finds that some foods contain carcinogens, and some body washes and personal care products contain chemicals that may cause skin irritations or cancers.
Eco Shop was established in December 2009. Over the years, we have carefully selected organic cereals, oils, foods, organic healthy snacks, organic skin care products, personal care products and non-toxic household products. In addition to supporting organic products so as to protect the soil, we hope everyone can use high-quality organic products and protect the bodies from being harmed by chemicals. In the near future, we will introduce "bare buying organic products". Everyone is welcome to bring your own containers to buy! Hope to further reduce wastes at the source.
Thank you for supporting our shop!
