I am not writing alot on this issue because I have a bad headace and It's getting late. lol.
Growing organic veggies,fruits or just having and organic ornamental garden can help the earth by alot.
First is the obvious- despite composting creates natural methane gases from time to time, organic growing still improves the condition of the earth by lessening the amount of chemcials and pesticides that go into the eco system. alot of pesticides and chemicals proven to harm wildlife and even domesticated life are dumped on our produce every year. This poision not only kills the bad bugs but it kills off our beneficial insects as weell and disruptes their food chain. Then after contaminating the air it seeps into our soils, produce and water. Some chemicals in pesticides are even toxic. Esp if we do not wash it well. Once the poisons are in our ground it effects the new life that will be sprouting from that same soil. And if we do wash the chemcials off of our produce we are only washing them straight back into the water sources. Also some fertilizers aren't the best and imo the more natural/organic the better it tastes.
For people who like to graden via produce or ornamental- organic is still the way to go if all is possible. Altough grocery stores are really expensive when it comes to organic it's not the case when home gardening. Alot of people can make their own compost which replaces the need for fertilizer and reduces the amount of trash going to the landfills. But if you don't want to compost you can always buy it. Some brands are cheap and even come in eco friendly packaging. Alot of the pest control for do it yourself gardens are items you can purchase in the grocery store at a great price. If it's pronouncable and edible then it can't be that bad for the enviroment.
Most harmful ingredients or toxic are hard to pronounce. haha.ok back to the subject
composting can take care of alot of unnecessary garbage- kitchen scraps, ash, lawn trimmings and leaves, even hair for calcium. Some animal matter and whanot. If all of that is composted for gardens instead of ending up in the trash it would cut most household waste in half. Most people here that bag their lawn clippings put at least 4 or more bags in the dump each time they mow. that's alot of bags an extra "garbage" that would eventually just go back into the earth is left to naturally decompose.
Now I don;t have the money to eat organic everything but there are certain foods that are easier to get naturally pesticide free than others. I try to get the more/easier "contaminated" foods organic when growing season is over.
Also natural housecleaning can also help stop alot of chemcial and product waste and harm. Instead of using bleack or ammonia you can substitute it for other natural disinfectants. Or at least cut the use of the harmful chemicals down when possible. We may have to use bleach from time to time for example. but instead of using it to whiten clothes how about try using baking soda or another natural product. Alot of natural cleaners come in refillable bottles or paper/cardboard packaging. Or is simple organic matter that will be grat for the compost--hahaha
Ok I am a bit tired now. But I will prob. post on here later tmorrow..or should I say today. looks like I actually typed quite a bit
