The Organic Culture

The facets of the organic culture are many and most think of organic food culture when the term organic is used. The organic food culture refers to a recent social and cultural trend in which there has been an increased interest in organic food due to the rise of media coverage on health, food safety, and environmental dangers of pesticides. As always, depending on which news source you listen to (they are all biased one way or the other), the term organic is somewaht misunderstood and always misinterpreted.

Organic is a labeling term that indicates that the food or other agricultural product has been produced through approved methods. The organic standards describe the specific requirements that must be verified by a USDA-accredited certifying agent before products can be labeled USDA organic. Access the full set of resources that make up the USDA organic standards.

The truth is that when it comes to a true defined label for organic, their isn't one. The FDA says:

Here is the requirements for crops to be considered organic. Here is the requirements for livestock and poultry to be considered organic and finally here is the standard for handling the product to be considered organic.

The problem with all this labeling is that it is so easy to circumvent the requirement. Simply buy your product out of the country where the restrictions are non-existent, bring it in and slap an organic label on it. A well known practice of a well known so called organic market.

The time has come for the private sector and the consumer to step up and say enough. "True Organic cannot be achieved by anything that is grown in the ground or livestock that eats fiel grass ( has noone heard of acid rain). The task is an impossible one for those of us who truely understand organic. It is simple no chemicals period. When animals eat grass grown in the earth it has chemicals in it. The problem is that the FDA has set the bar too low.

Our hydroponic systems have figured out how to grow grass and grain in a soiless completely toxin free environment and this is "true organic".

No matter what they say, you cannot grow true organic in the earth. Leaving the soil fallow and using no pesticides or fertilizers on it does not stop the non-organic process. It is still getting chemical laden rain and that is where our system is completely different. All our hydroponic systems use %100 filtered water and all organic nutrients.

Organic Cleaning Products
