If you had the opportunity to protect the Earth for future generations would you? By promoting organic foods, we are not only delivering fresh, nutrient-rich food into our own bodies, but we help the environment out as well.
A lot of people don’t fully understand that over the years, with all the pesticides and fertilizers that have been dumped into the soil, the farming land in the United States has suffered.
“Mono-cropping and chemical fertilizer dependency has taken a toll with a loss of top soil estimated at a cost of $40 billion per year in the U.S.” , according to David Pimental of Cornell University.
Organic agriculture reduces non-renewable energy by decreasing our need on agrochemicals. Agrochemicals require high quantities of fossil fuels to be produced which hurts the environment. Global warming and greenhouse gas effects are reduced because organic growing sequesters carbon in the soil.
