So I'm slow...

I just recently realized that buying and eating organic isn't just good for me and the planet....but it's also a social justice issue. For two reasons.
1. At most Organic Farms that I know of, the workers are paid a fair, living wage.
2. They aren't exposed to a VERY toxic environment.

See http://www.panna.org/issues/frontline-communities/farmworkers as an example of some of the problems associated with working around pesticides.
