Pure Simple Juice is made with organic produce 100% of the time because it’s important. First of all, what is organic? Foods that are produced without using pesticides and other synthetic chemicals.
Why We Choose Organic Produce
1. We are making fresh juice! That means you are getting a concentrate dose of nutrients (think 3-4 servings plus of produce per juice) and thus any non-organic juice equals a big dose of synthetic chemicals as well.
2. There is clear evidence that organic produce reduces your cancer risk. The US Environmental Protection Agency considers 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides, and 30% of insecticides to be cancer-causing agents. And if that isn’t enough organic produce is also free of neurotoxins (some pesticides still contain organophosphates–a toxic nerve gas)
3. It’s better for the environment. Pesticides pollute our drinking water. Organic farming techniques support greater biodiversity and small-scale organic farms help create a livelihood for our local farmers and economy.

To your health!
