Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen Printable

We all know that eating veggies and fruits is good for our body. We also know that eating organic veggies and fruits is better because they don’t use pesticides and herbicides. But it is more expensive to buy organic compared to conventially-grown produce. So what do we do now?

Dirty Dozen Printable

Well, I found that Environmental Working Group (EWG) has came out with what’s called the Dirty Dozen. In the Dirty Dozen, EWG has listed the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables. It is a way that we can lower our pesticide & herbicide intake. We can just buy organic fruits and veggies that are listed in the dirty dozen.
EWG have also added two types of produce that were commonly with pesticide exceptionally toxic to the nervous system. So they added them to the list so you can buy them organic and avoid the toxic.
Not only the Dirty Dozen, but the EWG have also made a list of the Clean Fifteen, where we can find the least contaminated fruits and vegetables.

So, I thought I would make a printable for you guys. In the printable is a list of Dirty Dozen, and with a list of the Clean Fifteen on the other side. They fit in the credit card slot so it will fit nicely in your wallet. So you will have the lists with you when you go grocery shopping.

Dirty Dozen list fits in wallet!

Remember though, eating fruits and veggies, even when they are conventionally-grown, is much better than not eating them at all. The benefits outweigh the risks! I personally mostly buy conventionally-grown, but with this list maybe I'll buy organic more often (when I have more money)
