Being organic is a life decision and may take some time to filter through to every part of your life. However the home is probably the best place you can start to practice your new organic life. Here are 5 tips to get you started.
1. Shop at an organic Only store:
If you shop at a store that only stocks organic goods then you will have much less chance to break and go for a cheaper non-organic option. At the same time you will find a plethora of items you may not have thought of. This will make it easier for you to achieve your goal of living the organic life style. You will also find it less tempting to pick up items you are really wanting to avoid.
2. Grow your own organic good:
Growing food is a great hobby and probably the best way to ensure your food is 100% organic. You can buy organic seeds and plant food from the garden store. I have heard that the potency of fruits and vegetables start to deteriorate the longer they are off the vine. So to get the most benefit and nutritional value from your fruits and vegetables eat them as soon after picking them as possible. By doing so you will realize the maximum benefit they have to offer.
3. Remember that clothing often comes from organic matter too:
Your cotton pants and shirts are all originated from cotton plants. If you really want to go organic then you should remember these things too! Organic comes in many forms and shapes we often neglect. Take some time to learn what an organic lifestyle really means, and how it can benefit you.
4. Make sure your dry ingredients are organic too:
Most people forget that things in cans and packets can be organic too. Many popular brands offer organic options so it shouldn’t be a problem. It is obviously up to you the individual as to how organic you want to become. It is after all your life.
5. Start composting your organic waste:
If you start a compost in your garden or a worm compost in your apartment then you can create your own plant food and fuel a whole organic cycle. This is perhaps one of the most misunderstood aspects of being organic. But when you think about it this makes a lot of sense. You are not only helping get the most benefit for your garden, but you are also helping the planet by reducing the amount of waste you put out. Again a win – win for us and the planet.
It may seem daunting when you look at what is involved. Just like with anything it is best to take small baby steps to get going. With every step you take you get closer to helping yourself, others and ultimately the planet. So start out small, eat an organic salad every day, then add to that with a fresh organic fruit every day, keep adding and soon you will be living the organic life.
