“Yo Baby, can I get that number?!”

If a banana were to try to pick up another banana, I imagine that’s what it would sound like.

Genetically modified and non-organic food is sooo 1990’s!

Get a grip and try to buy only Organic & Local!

If you don’t have the time to pick up produce from the hundreds of local produce stands in California, you can still buy organic produce at major grocery stores. Simply look for the PLU (Price Look-up) codes on the labels stuck on your favorites fruits and vegetables… those little stickers tell you all the info you need to know. Often they tell you where they are either harvested or shipped from, but the actual PLU code gives you the organic information.

•A four digit number means it’s conventionally grown

•A five digit number beginning with 9 means it’s organic

•A five digit number beginning with 8 means it’s genetically modified

But don’t forget, it’s not only about organic… locally grown food is the way to go. For more info about where to buy locally grown meat, veggies, fruit, honey, dairy, etc., click produce stands in Cal above.
