With autumn officially here and October just around the corner, what better way to start it off than with a round up of JAM’s activity during Organic September.
Soil Association’s celebration of all things organic has meant that us Jammers have had an excuse to eat non-stop during the whole of September (not like we needed an excuse really)… but this time, we swapped our giant sized bars of Cadbury Marvellous Creations, M&S cupcakes and dinner-time meals for Green & Black’s Butterscotch chocolate, home-made lemon and raspberry cupcakes and Sri Lankan Chicken Curry.
We’ve tried everything organic that we could get our hands on – from fruits, to teas and shampoo! Naturally, we wanted to try everything and anything. Not just from a fun point of view but also to contribute to bringing about a positive change to make our planet more environmentally friendly. In fact, did you know that if 10,000 people made an organic breakfast every day for one month, that an extra 40,000 organic eggs could be produced? Yep, we’ve even learnt a thing or two.
Aside from a month of over eating and being more wary of what’s ending up in our shopping baskets, I know I for one am glad that we’ve tried to make a difference by making these small changes. I’ll definitely ensure we stay stocked up on organic products here at JAM Towers. And who knows, maybe next year I’ll be blogging about my organic three-course Jammer dinner, although with my track cooking record, I severely doubt it. We can but try!
