75% Organic?

I bought a product the other day that is labeled “75% Organic.” As I read the label, I wondered can something actually be 75% organic. I mean, once you mix the 25% non-organic ingredients with the 75% organic, isn’t the concoction now non-organic? Being organic is an absolute, either something is organic or it is not. I don’t think there is an in-between. Just like you would never hear someone say I’m 75% pregnant. A woman is either pregnant or she’s not.

I don’t know, maybe the creators of this product are trying to say that their product is better for you than a product that is a 100% non-organic. Sort of like saying, eating 75% of a huge piece of cake is better for you than if you ate the whole thing.
