Transcript of Organic gardening
Organic gardening/ organic food
Currently, the European Union, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan and many other countries require producers to obtain special certification in order to market food as organic within their borders
why is it good for the environment?
-food is not sprayed (so it doesn't destroy the environment)
-brings in good money for fair farmers
-animals/ fruits and vegetable are healthier for you
Organic food is food that has been grown or processed without synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives
-When organic food travels long distances to market (food miles), it creates pollution that may offset any positive environmental effects of organic farming. However, buying local food, which may or may not be grown organically, helps reduce the environmental costs associated with food miles
There is widespread public belief that organic food is safer, more nutritious, and tastes better than conventional food.
-organic food accounts for 1–2% of total food production worldwide, the organic food sales market is growing rapidly with between 5 and 10 percent of the food market
- World organic food sales jumped from US $23 billion in 2002 to $63 billion in 2011.
