Reasons for Organic

formerlyfingers | Feb 21, 200707:50 PM

I read an article in a non food magazine recently which probed the issue of the ever increasing popularity of organic foods. Obviously, there are spinoff threads which could develop, like -what constitutes "organic"- and -what is the science of the health benefits of either?-
That however is not the point of this post.
I am just curious to know why you buy organic, how often, and what are the motivating factors in your decisions.

Are they......"concern for sustainable agriculture", "want to support the little guy", " it just feels right", "it's the cool thing to do" ?

Asking fellow chowhounds should provide me with truly interesting and provocative replies, which is why I am launching it here, not at the "water cooler" so to speak. Although I may do that too, just for fun!
