If you’re looking for social media content to showcase the value of organic, you’ve come to the right place. Despite organic sales reaching all-time highs, the organic community is still often asked to prove the value of organic and defend it from innacurate claims. We have all heard the misleading statements that organic cannot feed the world, or that it’s not really better for your health. To combat this misinformation, the Organic Trade Association (OTA) has created a collection of visually engaging graphics that are chock-full of facts proving organic is worth it. Check out the fact gallery and download graphics at OTA.com/OrganicFacts.
These graphics draw on a wealth of credible information, from the latest organic science to research on consumer purchasing behavior. Originally developed during the Organic Trade Association’s highly successful Organic Myth Busting Month social media festival in 2015, the graphics have since been updated so that they can be used by anyone, anytime, anywhere, to communicate the value of organic.
Visually appealing and easy to understand, each graphic features at least one fact that tackles a misconception. OTA’s gallery includes over 30 graphics customized for social platforms Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
We encourage the organic community to utilize these graphics as a resource—whether for social media content, in printed publications, or as a reference point for consumer-friendly information about organic.
Together, by engaging with consumers and media with a consistent and clear voice, we can change the misconceptions about organic and bring new audiences onboard. Confusion about organic persists, and the work to increase public understanding is as important as ever. There are so many reasons to support and celebrate organic, from environmental impact to human health benefits to improved labor conditions for farmworkers. Now is the time to educate the public about what the USDA Organic seal means, why you can trust it, and why it’s worth supporting.
