Understanding Organic: Helpful Resources

By Team Navitas | 

We recognize the urgency of climate change we’re facing in our lifetimes. At Navitas Organics, we are committed to using our business as a force for good. By sourcing from small-scale, sustainable and organic farms, and focusing on plant-based products, we are reducing the environmental impact we put on our food system and planet. After more than 15 years of supporting this effort, we’re re-framing our mission statement to align more intentionally with this purpose to help with the transition to a plant-focused lifestyle into 2020 and beyond.

MISSION: We are committed to creating a healthier world through regenerative organic farming and plant-focused lifestyles

And while understanding organic can seem like an overwhelming, complicated or even intimidating feat, the reality is that it's a lot easier and more intuitive than you might think!
