Dirty Dozen 2019

Untitled design.jpg

Every year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) comes out with a list of the dirtiest fruits and vegetables (dirty dozen). These are the fruits and vegetables that are the most contaminated with pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers and other harmful toxins. The EWG also releases a list of the clean fifteen each year, which are the cleanest fruits and vegetables. It is recommended that you buy the dirty dozen organic whenever possible, the clean fifteen may be purchased conventional.
