Organic Food is the fuel for a Sustainable Future!

Considering the present times it’s all about sustainability. The world is going to run on sustainable methods of lifestyle in the near future. And if we don’t conserve now our prodigy will never be able to flourish in a healthy fashion. Did you know about the UN Climate Report, right? It's the report where scientists from the UN found out that if we don't reverse the ecosystem we're on right now; by 2050 we will hit the point of no return with our climate. Essentially, if we don't do something about climate change, we're totally in jeopardy as a population. The climate needs to be at the forefront of everything. And organic farming is one of the ways we can help make effective and lasting change for our climate. 

Do you want to know why?

Because organic farms sequester carbon in the soil. And recent data has shown that we actually have the ability to sequester more than 100% of current annual CO2 emissions with the switch to organic farming.

You aren't going to eat the same single ingredient every day. You wouldn't get all the nutrients you need and eventually you would die. It's the same for creatures in the wild. Because organic farming uses natural practices to reduce pests – like cover crops, pollinator fields, no chemicals, etc. – biodiversity is able to flourish. And the research has found organic farms/fields with high levels of plant diversity increased both the abundance and the number of species like insects, pollinators and pest predators (birds and other animals).

Organic is better for you, it's better for the people growing and picking the food, and it's better for the climate. So if you have the option, try to purchase organic so you can support your own health and the health of everyone else on this planet. Since it does not include the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, organic agriculture is very sustainable in many aspects. Organic farms tend to have more fertile soil, use less energy, and sequester more carbon. Research has shown that organic farms use 45 percent less energy, release 40 percent less carbon emissions, and foster 30 percent more biodiversity compared to conventional farming.
