Now Let's Learn and Play!

 

***************************************************************************************************************************************************

 

MDC's Grade School:

You will learn about Certified Organic

Enter to win USDA Certified Organic Angel Baby Bath Blossoms.

 

 

So many products, so many labels! The label says "natural," but does that mean safe? Whats really organic?  Whats a toxic ingredient? You almost need a degree to decipher label claims!

 

That's why Earth Mama Angel Baby®  is giving you a chance to go to the head of the organic class, win prizes and learn about the five levels of Organic and Natural.  You'll get product label information a concerned consumer can really use, plus earn your Mam U. diploma and a chance to win fantastic prizes all along the way, including a ginormous Grand Prize worth over $650! Earth Mama Angel Baby and 5 respective blog/forum sites take you from grade to grade: once you pass one level, you can move on to the next.  You can do all five in a day or take your time and do it in a week.  Just make sure you go to Mama U. Graduation by midnight Sunday, May 1st to pick up your diploma, your special graduate coupon code, and enter to win the Mama U. Graduates Grand Prize Bundle  of natural and organic goodies valued over $650!

 

Head-of-the-Class-Grand-Prize.jpg

 

Welcome to Grade School! Now that you’ve mastered “100% Organic,” we’re moving on to a slightly more difficult: “Certified Organic.” The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) certifies to the highest food standard, the National Organic Program (NOP). The word “Organic” is the legal claim. For a food or personal care product to claim Organic anywhere on the label, 95% or more of the ingredients must be certified organic and verified by an independent certifier. If one ingredient is only Organic (99%), the entire product claim drops from 100% Organic to Organic. In addition, any non-organic ingredient must be produced without the use of GMOs, irradiation, and sewage sludge. And of course there can be no artificial ingredients, petroleum products or prohibited substances in the product. That means no artificial dyes, fragrances or other potentially harmful ingredients.

 

Whole Foods Market recently stepped forward to help clear up the confusion about organic personal care product claims.  As of June 2011, Whole Foods Market will require all personal care products that have an organic claim to be certified organic to either the NOP (food) standard or the NSF personal care standard.  You'll learn about hte NSF Standard in High School!

 

To verify the organic claim, and to be sure you are getting a 95% or more organic product, check the label for the USDA symbol and the name of the certifier. If a product claims to be Organic, but does not have the name of the certifier on the back panel, it is not certified and therefore not verified to be Organic by a third party. The only claim words that can be on the label are the words “Organic,” In addition, the organic percentage of the product, and the company logo is allowed to contain the word “organic.”

 

Angel Baby Bath Blossoms is, in fact, USDA NOP Certified 100% Organic. But to demonstrate the Organic claim, we’ve mocked up a label pretending the rose blossoms listed in the ingredient panel are only 99% organic. If that were the case, the product claim would be Organic.

At least 95% needs to be organic.  And on a side note, I came to the website today specifically looking for information about non-toxic personal health care items...So this contest was a lovely find!

At least 95%, though I think that number is a little low.

95% of the product must be organic in order for the product to be labeled "organic."    I am surprised that 5% can be non-organic and that it can still be called that!
