Celebrating Australian Organic Awareness Month 2017!

September 1st marks the first day and launch of Australian Organic Awareness Month 2017!

We are so excited to be hosting AOAM in its fourth year running, supporting and celebrating certified organic products across all industries around Australia.

Vani Hari, a.ka. The Food Babe, is an American author, activist, and affiliate marketer who criticizes the food industry. www.foodbabe.com

“In Australia, you have the largest holding of organically certified land. This is incredible and you should all be so proud! There are so many reasons to shop organically – and not just in the food aisle. You owe it to yourself to take a hard look at what you choose to eat every day and how it can affect your health.”

Teresa Cutter, a.k.a. The Healthy Chef, is a classically trained chef, nutritionist, author, accredited fitness trainer and media personality. www.thehealthychef.com

“As a nation, we need to make a deeper commitment to healthy living – whether that is our own bodies or the external environment – because products containing chemicals have the ability to deplete ourselves of health and vitality. This month is also about highlighting the accessibility and affordability of certified organic products as well as the importance of certification and looking for a trusted mark – like the Bud logo – when purchasing organic products.”

Emmily Banks, owner of Depths of Beauty, a Natural and Organic Makeup Artist with 10+ years experience in the industry. www.depthsofbeauty.com.au

“It’s no secret that women are represented and celebrated in many shapes and forms across cultures and media outlets worldwide. With so many elements at play that contribute towards feeling beautiful, I believe it’s important that we focus on the most nourishing, grounding and holistic elements.”

Ruby Red Shoes ‘A Very Aware Hare’, is a fictional white hare created by Australian author Kate Knapp. Ruby Red Shoes is a great addition to our Australian Organic Awareness Month ambassadors as she connects with kids about a healthy lifestyle, and is a great opportunity for our Australian Organic Schools program.

Please join us in supporting and celebrating Australia’s certified organic industry by looking for the Bud logo this September and converting one product you use to certified organic.

We’ll be running weekly competitions every week in September with an AOAM Gift Pack as the prize, which features all of our sponsors’ products! Check out Australian Organic’s Facebook and Instagram to find out more and enter!
