The impact of non-organic products is, many times, overlooked. I experienced this again when watching this documentary, where a bit of time is given to the issue, but only in relation to how these products affect human health through dietary intake. While evidence shows that it's better to have a plant-based diet even if your produce is non-organic (but it's always better if it is organic), I can't help but notice how other relevant factors are completely ignored.
For instance, how pesticides pollute our planet and also maim and kill humans all around the world, or how they destroy ecosystems and the creatures whose existences are based on the ecological balance that they wipe out. Not to mention the obvious direct killing of the species they are marketed to destroy, plus others directly poisoned by them.
So, as vegans, we should keep all these effects in mind. Non-organic produce destroys life in a terrifying level.
I always remember this person I knew who said that organic products were a scam, which sounds totally absurd; it's like saying that the sun is a scam. Sure, people will try to make money out of anything and lie for it, but there's a difference between someone in a cult saying that the sun is god and giving money to them will grant you its favor and that the sun itself is a scam. Organic products are not a scam. Now, if the produce in the aisle are truly organic or not, or trying to give organic products properties that they do not have, that's a different story.
"There is no hope. Knowing that humans die untimely, by the millions, simply makes me feel a bit better. If more than, say, 2000 were killed in one go, I could smile. 20000? I might throw a party..."

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
