This month is Organic September, an initiative run by the Soil Association to raise awareness of the many benefits of organic food and farming, including supporting biodiversity and wildlife, helping to combat climate change and reduced exposure to pesticides. To celebrate Organic September, we’ve picked out our top ten home accessories, which all have organic certification.
