Farms use strategies to co-exist in harmony with surrounding ecosystems and incorporate measures to reduce pollution from water runoff and other production practices.
Choosing foods produced with less chemicals and hormones could have positive health consequences and may also prevent dangerous runoff in the environment which affects both plant and animal life.
By proxy, this means that you are supporting the many positive ecological factors, like the elimination of harmful runoff and human treatment of animals and employees, associated with organic farming and manufacturing.
Organic Farming Methods: Agriculture industries have moved over to organic methods of growing plants and raising livestock in order to reduce the amount of chemicals contaminating water from agricultural runoff.
Organic farming and manufacturing produces less harmful runoff and leaves a smaller ecological footprint on nature, animals, and even people, which is an investment into our future that cannot be taken lightly.
