The 2015 Clean Fifteen and Dirty Dozen {Cheat Sheet} | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Summer is fully upon us, which means a plethora of fresh fruits and veggies to choose from at your grocery store and farmer’s market. It’s a beautiful thing when so much produce is in season!

If you’re like me, you try to buy organic as much as possible; however, you’re also on a budget and need to be a little more realistic when it comes to deciding what to purchase.

No, a non-organic apple won’t kill you, but if you know your clean fifteen and dirty dozen, deciding what to buy conventionally versus what to buy organic might make life just that much easier.

Clean fifteen AND dirty dozen??! But that’s 27 different things to remember! How am I possibly going to keep them all straight?! 

Not to worry! We’ve created a Clean Fifteen and Dirty Dozen cheat sheet for you, based on the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) 2015 list of fruits and vegetables with pesticide residue. According to their website, the EWG analyzed pesticide residue testing data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Food and Drug Administration to come up with rankings for 48 popular fresh produce items.

You can Pin it, print it, or bookmark it to refer to before (or during) your next shopping trip…..because we all need life to be a little easier sometimes.
