The 2020 guide is here! Guess who made #1 once again? Yep, strawberries.

Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) tests over 50 fruits and vegetables and ranks them by the total number of pesticides detected on the crop and the percentage of samples tested with detectable pesticides. Every spring, the EWG releases their new list of the most and least contaminated produce to help consumers make informed choices. New list for 2020 will be here soon!

In 2019, we saw kale and spinach at the top of the dirty list, but on a good note, avocados made the clean list. Thank goodness for that! Have you seen the price for organic avocados? Strawberries, a highly sprayed crop, has, unfortunately, been in the #1 position for several years.

If you care about staying healthy and want to eat as organic as possible, this list makes it affordable to make the good choices, because, thanks to the EWG, you don’t have to buy all organic produce to reduce your risk for chemical contamination.

  • The Dirty Dozen ™ are EWG’s 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables on the list.
  • The Clean Fifteen™ are EWG’s 15 least contaminated fruits and vegetables on the list.
