As a citizen and consumer, I expect your commission to do its job and insure that labeling of non-food items that make claims re: being organic are truly organic and have unbiased 3rd party testing of what is in the products to be really organic. I want to trust the labeling, keep synthetics and chemicals off my body, prevent allergic (and worse) reactions and support by purchasing products from companies that make products that are truly organic. Do not allow liars and cheaters a chance to rip off us consumers by you not doing your job. You work for us and we pay for your salaries and budgets; please remember that and do the right thing. Just because the item is not eaten by me does not diminish its impact on me when it is labeled as such but not organic, and my ability to trust you and faith in you.
