Organic agriculture is based on practices that not only protect environmental and animal health, but also strive to improve it.
Instead of relying on synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, which can deplete soil of valuable nutrients and increase environmental cancer risk, organic agriculture builds up soil using compost, crop rotation, and other natural tools.
It also helps to keep our water supply clean.
Plus, by prohibiting the use of petroleum-based fertilizers and absorbing carbon dioxide from the air, organic agriculture helps to reduce our carbon footprint and combat climate change.
Read on to learn more about these benefits and how, together, they represent an environmental bargain. In the process, discover why organic is worth it for the health of your environment and the animals living in it.
