The Environmental Working Group (EWG) performed more than 43,000 tests for pesticides on various types of produce in thousands of samplings. Their computer analysis revealed that consumers could reduce their exposure to pesticides by almost 90 percent by avoiding just the most contaminated fruits and vegetables. They came up with a list of the most pesticide-laden produce varieties.
Earlier this year, a college student at our church went on a missions trip to Haiti through Mission Support International. She absolutely fell in love with the country and with the people she met there. As such, she felt personally affected and deeply moved by the earthquakes in Haiti, and was convicted to DO something to help these people she loved so much. She designed a t-shirt, found a company that would discount the t-shirts and print them for her, and is selling them for $10 – $5 for her cost for the shirt, and $5 will go to Mission Support International who will then disperse the money throughout Haiti. To be clear, 100% of the profits go directly to MSI for earthquake relief efforts.
