Today I want to share the “dirty dozen & clean fifteen” lists with you guys. It’s all about which foods you should strive for buying organic in terms of your own health and the environment, and which are less harmful.
The “Dirty dozen” list is a list of the fruit and vegetables that contains most chemicals, and which you should always strive for buying organic. And the “Clean fifteen” list is a list of the fruit and vegetables that contains the smallest amount of chemicals, and which are better/more okay to buy non-organic.
The best thing would of course be to buy everything organic, both for the Planet and for your own health. But if the budget is too tight, then here is a list of the ‘worst’ ones (the dirty dozens), which are most harmful to your health, and a list of the ‘better’ ones (the clean fifteen).
12. Sweet bell peppers
2. Sweet corn
6. Sweet peas
