Kate Bosworth Eats Organic and Wants You to Do Your Part

On Tuesday night I was invited to the Gorgeous and Green benefit in San Francisco.

The event was hosted by Global Green, an environmental nonprofit that focuses on global climate change through green initiatives. Not only did I taste an amazing eco-friendly wine, but I also got the chance to speak with the hostess of the night, actress Kate Bosworth. Here's what the stunning starlet, who was wearing a dress with recycled zippers, had to say:

On her abilities as a home cook: "I do a little bit, I am getting into it more and more. I'm OK. I'm not advanced at all."

On eating organic: "I try to as much as possible. I guess you can't be so rigid. Do what you can. Clearly you can't eat all organic all the time, but you just have to do as much as you can."

It was a pleasure speaking with Kate. She reminded me that it's important to do what we can to better the earth — I'm going to follow her lead and add a compost pail to my Christmas list! I hope she takes my cooking advice and starts to read YumSugar.

I'd love to eat organic all the time, but like others have mentioned, the cost of doing so makes it rather difficult for those of us with budgets. However, I do have an organic vegetable garden in my backyard, and love it! I can't believe that someone who is supposed to be a father of the green revolution would argue for synthetic fertilizers. All of those synthetic fertilizers find their way into our groundwater, and ultimately our drinking water. May make for a larger harvest, but I prefer to not be slowly poisoned with fertilizers.

I would eat organic if it didn't cost about 3 times what traditional food does. I do buy organic free trade coffee though...for whatever reason, it's cheaper than the conventional stuff at my grocery store.

why is she saying i have to eat organic? usually it's a worse choice for the enviroment bcause of the miles the produce travelled... i always drink organic milk, but that's it really. when i have more money i'll eat more of course, but that's only because i want to pampare myself, not for any other reason.

Is she going to help me with my letter writing to my grocery stories in my neighborhood that do not stock organic items.

Important to note the distinction between "being green" and eating organic... not everyone agrees that organic farming is better for the environment. Perhaps the most eminent critic of organic farming is Norman Borlaug, the father of the “green revolution”, winner of the Nobel peace prize and an outspoken advocate of the use of synthetic fertilisers to increase crop yields. He claims the idea that organic farming is better for the environment is “ridiculous” because organic farming produces lower yields and therefore requires more land under cultivation to produce the same amount of food. just some food for thought...
