SUMMARY: Here it is, the 2017 EWG Clean Dirty list… Buy produce to the EWG Clean/Dirty list to preclude the most toxin loads! Also, consider those that are most dirty for growing in your garden or buying at clean farm markets!
The big changes from last year… Spinach jumps to second most dirty and pears appear for the first time…
2017 EWG Clean Dirty list (full list here)
The Dirty Dozen, in order of greatest to least toxin load, is: strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, grapes, celery, tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, and potatoes.
Here’s a YouTube for how to grow potatoes in a container!
And spinach, kale, and other greens (as well as herbs like basil, parsley rosemary and thyme), grow well in simple containers on the deck near the kitchen which makes for easy daily harvest! Matter of fact, so too does an organic vegetable soil bag!
EASY, delic, give it a try!
Best in health,
