How Organic Can Feed The Planet?April 13th, 2012 | Posted by in Eco-Friendly | Organic Cooking | Organic Food
Buying organic is a powerful change-making action as well as easy one. Today, 1 billion people are malnourished or starving in world in spite of 70 years of chemical- and petroleum-reliant farming practices. A recent report from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health states that it takes three calories of energy to create one calorie of edible food with conventional farming. Biotech crops require incredible amounts of resources to produce yield and fail without expensive herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, and irrigation. Organic methods can produce harvests 180 percent larger than chemical farming in communities that struggle to feed themselves. According to United Nations, we could double food production in just 10 years using organic practices and other agro ecological farming methods. Organic farming creates more of the resources on which our food supply relies, while conventional farming destroys them. We like to say, "Organic has the strength to not only feed the world, but feed the world well."
It is up to you to live an organic and eco-friendly life.
