    Technically, I suspect that water with poo floating in it would be organic...

    Doesnt the poo have to come from an organically grown organism in order to be organic itself?

    I'm not organic therefore my floaties are not organic (I suspect)

    The reason I asked about organic water was the article I read today about Organic Water.

    Water Cannot be Organic

    I see and accept their argument "Because water is not an agricultural product it can not benefit from such practices and so it was inappropriate to label it "organic", the ACCC said."

    I wonder what they will do/say about my favorite beer : http://www.fullers.co.uk/rte.asp?id=50

    Don't wish to derail the thread but always wondered about Organic Haircare products. Seems to be alot of Organic Baby products which claim this.

    And there can be hidden dangers behind a certain fresh water pool, not dangerous animals, but large unseen rocks, currents, etc. I won't venture to one unless I have scouted and survey a prospective sight.
    The water comes from rain and the streams are only full in summer. Unseen rocks are why you don't jump in. Currents?? LMAO.
