ORGANIC TEES, ORGANIC VEGETABLES
AND HULA HOOPS
An organic lifestyle has become particularly appealing around Earth Day where it is accepted as much as hot dogs and apple pie (organic of course). Every year on April 22nd there is enormous support from the media including internet bloggers, magazines, newspapers and network television commentators.
Organic clothing and organic food are derived from pesticide free organic agriculture, accounting for much of their popularity. Organic apparel is featured at the finest fashion stores including Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys New York, and Fred Segal. Organic food is now available at organic restaurants throughout the United States.
Other varieties of organic goods are now available including organic baby and organic yoga products, toys, beauty supplies, bedding, gardening merchandise and services.
Many “green” companies specialize or incorporate the production of recycled and/or recyclable merchandise. These include all types of products such as children’s toys, doggie toys, tires, clothing and mirrors. The use of recycled products has become a component of business and leisure days throughout the world. Alternative energy producers represent another component of green industry. They can provide clean reusable energy while they continue to make technical advances every year. Alternative energy producers, as well as the organic clothing, food and recycling industries, create products to protect us and our planet. They are the farthest thing from a passing hula hoop fad. On the contrary, they’re here to stay providing us with a slice of grim reality indicating that we’re far behind schedule. Consider the following:
1. Without the benefits of organic agriculture we may be ingesting small quantities of carcinogenic pesticide residues, antibiotics or growth hormones that accumulate over a lifetime.
2. Recycling preserves our essential natural resources and reduces waste.
3. Our energy production has been a carbon based, fossil fuel operation for many years. The consequences have been the combustion of natural resources, pollution of our air, water, and soil, and loss of plant, animal and human life.
4. Burning carbon based fossil fuels has increased greenhouse carbon dioxide emissions affecting climate and weather with potential disastrous consequences to our future survival.
5. Dependence on foreign oil has huge political and economic consequences. Alternative energy can progressively replace fossil fuels. This strategy can be a boon to our economy by planting us firmly on the road to energy independence. It will also create new jobs for the expanding solar, wind and geothermal industries. As a symbolic gesture to a green future, our new president recently revealed his intention to plant the first organic garden on the White House grounds (OTA Blog Watch- January-March, 2009). We hope this historic garden will serve as a shining beacon in the storm of economic, health, and environmental issues that confront President Obama and his successors.
