The Dirty Dozen Cheat Sheet

The world's cutest pocket guide to buying organic


While always preferred, buying organic is often cost-prohibitive and, with some produce, sometimes less important. Heidi Kenney's downloadable Dirty Dozen Cheat Sheet makes that split-second decision on whether to spend that extra 20 cents a pound on organic bananas or organic strawberries a little easier.

The convenient, credit card-sized guide separates 27 common fruits and veggies into two categories, those that usually have a low pesticide content and those that don't.
