Eating biological products

The choice of biological products today is still influenced by their price that is higher in comparison to traditional foods. Buying biological products directly from producers in the so-called “farmers markets” or directly in farms is a solution to avoid the overpricing problem. Buying biological food means choosing products that have been produced without pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers reducing their impact on the environment and avoiding soil and groundwater pollution by these substances. Moreover, the well-being of animals raised with this system is respected.
