Organic products minimize the public health risks that farm workers, families and consumers are exposed to. They accomplish this by reducing their exposure to persistent and toxic chemicals on farms and in products. Offering organic products to the market enables people to have the option of selecting things that have been produced without involving these toxins.
Choosing Organic Products
- Along with helping to minimize public health risks, there is mounting evidence that shows how organically grown plants are richer in nutrients with less exposure to pesticide residues and nitrates when compared to traditionally grown products. There are nutritional and healthier profiles that are associated with using a variety of natural products.
- The basis of organic agriculture protects environmental health while striving to enhance it. Rather than being dependent on synthetic fertilizers and pesticides that strip away the valuable nutrients of soil and contribute to environmental degradation, an organic approach to agriculture improves the soil through practices like crop rotation, cover cropping and composting
- Choosing an organic product helps to combat climate change, protect the diversity of species and protects valuable water resources from damage.
Organic Products and Natural Ingredients
Be sure not just to find organic products, but ones that have safe and natural ingredients.
For example, if you purchase soap, you’ll want to make sure it does not have dyes or artificial fragrances.
Great post! I used to purchase Aloe Vera in a jar, but no more. I bought my daughter an Aloe Vera plant for her dorm room last year and since then, it has tripled in size! Last December she graduated early and brought the plant home. It has been sitting in our sunroom and did quite well over the winter. Whenever I get a mild burn or irritation, I snip a piece of the plant and it really works wonders! They are great for people who don’t have a green thumb, too!
I love using Aloe Vera for natural treatments. I use it a lot in the summer for scrapes and bug bites, but I like to drink it as well as I heard it’s great for those with IBD.
I have seen Aloe in stores for more than just a topical product. I am not sure how it is supposed to be used.
I have used this many times but did not know about all of the things it can be used for until now. I didn’t know that aloe vera extracts can be used for water conservation as well as preserving fresh foods. That is awesome!
