green-organic  UNEP ON THE GROUND
Follow your instinct: eat organic!

A new series of videos, produced by UNEP as part of the EU’s 'Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood' (EaP-GREEN) programme, shows how organic food is the natural choice for animals and our environment and calls on people to follow in their footsteps.


Animals instinctively opt for organic produce as they sense what is good for them, as shown in the videos accessible via the following links: Doe Badger Rabbit.


Choosing to eat organic means looking after the environment better than by consuming conventional products; organic produce is free of synthetic or chemical fertilisers, almost free of antibiotics and helps foster natural biodiversity. It also means choosing a healthier and more varied diet.


UNEP’s work on organic agriculture in the EU's Eastern Partnership countries includes expanding domestic agri-food supply chains and fostering trade exchanges, training farmers to switch from conventional farming and awareness-raising campaigns.


The recording of a doe, badger and rabbit choosing organic over conventional food was launched in the framework of EaP-GREEN, which is funded by the EU and implemented jointly by UNEP, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation.


UNEP also produces market assessment studies as well as reports aimed at policymakers showing the benefits of the practice from both an environmental and economic perspective. Organic producers have furthermore been given a foot-up and received support to take part in the Biofach major organic trade fair.
