Thank you for sharing.
From the article: " Thirty-five percent of this group said they are not price- conscious when it comes to purchasing organic products; only 3 percent declared that they would not pay extra for an organic item. The other 62 percent admit to being sensitive to the price, with a 20 percent premium appearing to be the magic number before sales start to drop off. When asked what they do when an organic item on their shopping list is not available, 40 percent say they buy its conventional counterpart while 60 percent look for an organic substitute.

A majority of this group also said they don’t want plastic packaging. "

Like this.

From the article: " Batcha also revealed the results of a somewhat biased poll of 1,200 OTA social media followers. She allowed that the group has self-selected OTA so they are almost certainly devotees of the organic concept. Nonetheless, she said their views about the organic proposition are relevant. In an open-ended question asking respondents to pick three words associated with organics, the top choices were: safe, delicious, nutritious, fresh, clean and better."

Thank you. This is encouraging. I do buy organic as much as I can. It is best for health of humans and critters, especially the pollinators. With each dollAR I spend it is a message to the stores, co-ops, farmers or restaurants.
