While Italy observed its first Bio-Domenica (Organic Sunday) on 7 October, studies showed that 2 kilos of pesticides are "consumed" by each person every year, but the shift toward organically production is gaining speed. Environmentalist group Legambiente announced that agriculture uses 100,000 tons of pesticides every year, chemical material that does not disappear but instead reaches the table particularly in fruits and vegetables. From 1 kilo of pesticides, only 10g will be absorbed by insects, say environmentalists, while the rest remains on food products. Another study shows that of 1.7m tons of fertilisers, two thirds remain reach food products, while 40% of fruits and vegetables are contaminated.
