How can a food that is shipped from the other side of the globe still be organic?

There is no secret in my family that I LOVE to blab about my work. My friends and family might even be a bit tired to hear me preach about how important it is to eat vegetarian. Or what great difference it makes for the environment to choose organically produced food. So I thought I would share a question I often get from people who are skeptical of organic food.

How can a food that is shipped from the other side of the globe still be organic?

Organic has nothing to do with shipping. Organic farming makse a huge difference for the people that are working at the farm. If you choose organic they are less likely to suffer a brain tumor from the toxic pesticides.
Buying organic also means that there are no remnants of the pesticides left in your food. This is common in non-organic fruits and vegetables. You might think that shipping has the biggest impact on the environment, this is in most cases not true. Pesticides are very persistent, once in nature they are hard get rid of. Pesticides spreads easily over large areas, therefore, pesticides that are banned can still remain in the ground.
