Begin Living A Greener Life With An Organic Garden

For people who are old enough to remember, leading a green life used to be the norm. Almost everyone would grow their own gardens or purchase their produce from the store; of course, this was before the huge fast food rage. Many years ago, mostly everyone maintained at least an average size garden, and a lot of small communities also had small farmers markets. There wasn’t the need to scrutinize labels to see what the product contained. Gardening used to be a normal practice in everyone’s lives; this is how parents fed their kids and keep the extra foods for wintertime. People did not believe in squandering food many, many years ago so any food not consumed was put back to the garden and integrated with the soil.

People did not apply chemical substances, and they fertilized their gardens in a natural manner. A normal garden produced enough delicious vegetables to feed every member of the family, and some of the neighbours. That was a time when people really knew their neighbors, and sharing food with each other was something that people did. I am certain you have heard of pesticides and chemical based fertilizers; well, many, many years ago, ages ago, not too long ago, some time ago people had never even heard of these terms. While these pesticides and chemicals were thought to assist in growing food, what they really did was begin harming the environment.

We will likely never realize how many of the health issues of today are set off by the chemicals in the ground and the absence of nutrients in our foods. No one ever gives any thought to the health conditions caused by these chemicals until they afflict someone in their family. As poor health is becoming typical for most of the population, more individuals are becoming worried about what they put into their bodies. Veggies have a lot more vitamins and nutrients in them when they are grown in an organic manner.

Living green is something that many people are now considering, and maybe it is time for you to think about it also. If you simply look at the health problems in the world these days, you may realize that it is time for a change. Conventional medicine has stopped working so it could be time to try alternative health care. In the issue of food, it is time to make the switch organic. Green living with organic gardening can be a means to cure ourselves, and help mend the Earth.

If a lot more people began their own organic garden, the amount of toxic substances being dumped in to the ground each year would be lowered greatly. Manure and other eco friendly plant foods must be utilized as opposed to toxic substances. The dead leaves, grass trimmings and kitchen leftovers will keep the soil full of necessary nutrients. By not using chemical fertilizers, you can be secure in the fact that you are not causing harm to wildlife or the health of your family. As well, the food produced will be healthy for consumption. Also, by having your own organic garden, you will be helping to reduce the detrimental effects on the earth associated with chemical substances.

You should keep your distance from the affected area if you choose to use chemical pesticides. Now if breathing in these poisonous fumes are dangerous to your health, what about the chemical substances which are contained in the food that you eat? If you choose not to make use of these insidious chemical pesticides, you can work in the garden whenever you want without having to avoid the area for any certain amounts of time. Numerous organic gardeners have their gardens close to their dwellings, which is one important reason not to use chemicals. By having your own organic garden, you can be sure you’re consuming nutritious foods and saving the environment at the same time.

Becoming Energy Efficient – Save the Planet


Becoming Energy Efficient – Save the Planet

Save the planet! As Earth Day approaches April 22, what are you doing to get ready? Earth day is an event that started to bring attention to our environment. How we handle our garbage reflects our environment. Here are three tips to help save our environment.

  • First, recycle. Recycling is taking some of our garbage and reusing it, directly or indirectly. To recycle a water bottle, you may reuse it again and again. But for gallon milk jugs or 2 liter soft drink bottles, you may opt to collect them and bring them to a recycling center. The recycling center will forward them on to a company that will melt them down and reprocess them.
  • Second, shop efficiently. Try using what your Grandma used when she cleaned her house. Try using vinegar and baking soda. There are lots of sites that recommend natural cleaning products instead of chemicals. Also, buy those products in bulk. It reduces packaging which ends up in our garbage dumps and it may be cheaper, the more you buy, the cheaper it is.
  • Third, conservation. Since I already have compact fluorescent light(CFL) bulbs installed, turning off the lights when I leave is the next best thing. My Mom always told me to turn off lights when I leave a room. She was right. Using more electricity only raises your electric bill. It will also increase your carbon footprint.

Education is a goal of Earth Day. Educating everyone from adults to children can get involved. Challenge your kids to come up with projects to bring attention to our environment. When we teach our next generation, we are saving our planet. But first, we must start ourselves. Be a steward of what God gave you. Become energy efficient by recycling and conservation. Our planet is worth it.

And now I would like to invite you to join me in learning energy saving tips you can do yourself to decrease your electric bill at http://energyconsciousconsultant.com Energy conservation should be out goal.
