What is Valuable about Composting?

What is Valuable About Composting?

By Clifford Woods

Over the course of human history and pretty much as far back as civilization stretches, composting has been used a means by which to grow food and enrich gardens. Sadly however, ever since mass-scale farming took over several decades ago, the practice has declined all over the world and there is less emphasis put on the importance of composting than ever before.

This is something that simply has to change for the future, and thankfully looks like it’s once again heading in the right way.

what is valuable about composting

A Rebirth for Composting: Nowadays, people are becoming more and more aware not only of what they are using around the home and the garden, but also what they are putting into their bodies and the effects their actions have on the environment. As such, the idea of composting has once again become a discussed point and people are realizing just how positive and beneficial this truly ancient practice can be and how much it really benefits our environment.

Even the most simple of endeavors like natural composting at home with the use of a single container for food scraps and organic waste is having a massively beneficial effect on the planet, helping to the reduce the need for landfills and other kinds of waste disposal. With the slightest effort, composting can lead to significant cash savings, benefits to health, positives for the garden and a beneficial boost to the environment all at the same time.

Getting Into the Habit: In order to be effective, those looking to compost at home need to “get into the habit” to a point where recycling their organic waste becomes natural, and not something they actually have to think about.

To work properly, effective composting at home needs to be part of a “lifestyle” and is an on-going process. Once these habits have been instilled however the benefits are too numerous to count, though include the following among others:

Value of Composting:

  • Production of an excellent product to boost the growth of organic fruits, vegetable and herbs at home – guaranteed to be 100% free of chemicals and harmful additives.
  • A free form of fertilizer that costs nothing – the waste will already be present as a part of everyday life, so why not put it to use?
  • An excellent alternative to use with 100% safety in environments where children or pets may be present.
  • A simple way of getting rid of refuses and waste from the garden, which may not be allowed in standard collections.
  • A means by which to reduce overall wastage and thus conserve landfill space.

Going about natural composting around the home essentially represents nothing more than common sense. After all, to overlook composting value and continue to throw out perfectly good organic matter only to go and pay good money for compost at the store is money poured needlessly down the drain.

Effective composting can be child’s play and there’s no reason not to get the kids involved from an early age and begin instilling good habits for life.

That being said, it’s never too late to get started and begin making a difference.

Aquariums And Their Value

Aquariums And Their Value

By Clifford Woods

An Aquarium is the name given to the container where pet fish are kept. Aquariums are mostly rectangular shaped containers with at least one transparent side. The material used for making these fish containers is either glass or acrylic. An aquarium is considered a very useful decoration item as it can add a lot of beauty to the interior design of any home or office.

Not only is it great for beautifying the place but it also provides an interesting object for the people to look at while they are waiting. This is the reason why you will always find a clean and well-kept aquarium placed in a hospital or a clinic where patients have to wait for their turn to see the doctor.

An Aquarium having tropical fish and plants in it is a real treat for young children. Since small kids love seeing fish moving around in the water, they get fascinated by the healthy fish swimming in the aquarium and feel relaxed. It has been proven by research that a fish tank can really help in calming down hyperactive children.

Organic Aquarium CleanerAccording to the research, a hyperactive child when placed in front of a beautiful and clean aquarium is going to stop wandering here and there and is going to get lost in the amazing world of fish and aquatic plants on display in the aquarium and hence, his hyperactivity is going to subside pretty quickly.

From the educational point of view as well, aquariums and their value prove to be great for the kids. The children can learn a lot about fish, their habitat, their food and many other interesting facts about these creatures if they have an aquarium at their home. Moreover, petting fish in an aquarium is a healthy hobby for the kids as well.

Not only is this hobby going to keep them engaged, they will learn a number of important things from it as well. They would learn to take care of their pets and would find out the importance of keeping things clean, tidy and alive as well.

Besides being a great decoration piece and an educational and relaxation equipment for hyperactive children, aquariums offer many environmental values to people as a whole. An aquarium is very pleasing to the eye and brings a person closer to nature. One becomes aware of the natural beauty and begins to change his views about environment and saving the creatures living in it. Moreover, an aquarium can help a person in developing a healthy interest in fish and marine life, urging him to do something for the betterment of other aquatic animals present in nature.

In addition to all these values, aquariums also provide tranquillity and peace to people. One look at the healthy fish swimming in the water is going to cheer you up and you will be immersed in the beauty of the scene and tend to forget all your worries and tensions for a while. Because fish do not create a lot of noise, they are ideal pets for people who like peace and do not want to get disturbed by the barking of a dog or the meowing of a cat.

Tips for a Natural and Organic House

Tips for a Natural and Organic House

By Clifford Woods

The world is discovering the need for cleaning products which are easy to use and safe for the environment. These natural products can be home-made and even when bought; they are not as expensive as one may have been lead to believe. Use of natural products enables us to protect the surroundings and out families and friends.

The Natural and Organic HouseVarious organizations have realized and are emphasizing the natural and organic house.  The various advantages which are gained, like keeping the water sources free from pollution, is of immense current and future value.

Water is one of the natural elements that we have in abundance around us. It can be used along with vinegar to clean the pipes which drain water away from various parts of a house like the kitchen sink and bathroom. Because of the acidic condition of a mixture like this, one can be assured that harmful microorganisms like mold and even bacteria that sometimes grow in these pipes, are neutralized.

When one is in need of preventing bad odor in the house or kitchen, this vinegar mixture is also an option. This is quite important as it does not pose any sort of health risk to the user and also achieve excellent results when used. Vinegar can be effectively mixed with water and used as a cleaner in the kitchen and bathrooms in the home. This is very much safer than the use of air fresheners which can trigger allergic reactions in people with respiratory type problems. Vinegar also kills harmful microorganisms due to its acidic nature.

Surfaces in the house like sinks or wooden counters can be stained when they come in contact with certain chemicals. One solution to this has been found in the use of lemon water. When used to scrub off stains, it can be quite effective. Additionally, lemon water combined with baking soda has been shown to be very potent in getting results when used to clean off most any kind of stains.

Controlling pests should be done in such as way as to not only eliminate the pests but should not leave behind sort of residue that could adversely effect the respiratory system of a person. Locating all the hiding places of spiders and there webs and getting rid of them and keeping surfaces clean, is a safe way of doing this. Finding their breeding sites is also quite helpful as this removes a whole generation of pest and helps keep a home clean and allergy free.

Cleanliness is also achieved by keeping your household items well organized; pests love a disorganized area – all those lovely, dark places to hide! Old or very rarely used items should be neatly stored or disposed safely, like in a dust bin. Old newspapers and books can be safely kept in boxes for future use. If no longer of value, these should be recycled.

In keeping a natural and organic house, it is a requirement to ensure that the air you breathe in is free from harmful particles. Good ventilations and a routine cleaning schedule with the use of natural products and beneficial microorganisms’ helps quite a bit in maintaining a healthy environment. Believe it or not, regular washing and drying of clothes helps keep them fresh and reduce odor in the household.

Cleaning a house can quite a task if things are left to accumulate too much. The kitchen should be cleaned after each meal. It is a lot easier to clean a pot used to cook rise when the rice is soft than when it has been left to harden. Therefore, embrace the need to keep the house and kitchen clean regularly and pay particular attention to the cleanliness of the kitchen and bathrooms all the time, so as to reduce the risk of stubborn stains or bad odor and or health damaging conditions.

When the kitchen is cleaned daily with organic cleaners
the risk to you and your family are greatly reduced!

Chemical Free Schools

Chemical Free Schools

By Clifford Woods

Chemical Free Schools

You would like to think that any environment in which kids spent most of their waking lives would be near enough 100% chemical free and therefore as safe as possible. Sadly however this has proven not to be the case as according to the results of recent studies, an alarming number of schools across the Western World are still packed to the rafters with harmful products and toxic chemicals that stand to cause untold damage in those most sensitive to harm.

So what exactly are children at risk from in such environments?If a person was to actually have free run of a school for a couple of hours, chances are they would be in for quite the surprise as to how many chemicals and toxins are present outside the confines of the science labs. Committees push for chemical free schools as the potential to do great harm in the years to come is real, but in the meantime awareness is still crucial.

Solvents: Various paints, marker pens and craft supplies that may not have been vetted for safety. Cleaning Products: Any number of cleaning products used by cleaners and the kids themselves from time to time that haven’t been thoroughly checked for harmful chemicals.

Vinyl: Certain types of vinyl products and supplies have been found to contain dangerous levels of toxins and still perpetuate in schools.Airborne Heaters and air-conditioners cleaned, maintained or built with toxic products/components.

Take into account the above examples along with dozens of others and it can begin to appear that pushing for chemical free schools is an impossible task, but the truth is in fact quite to the contrary.

Simple Steps: In order to protect the health of future generations, it is simply a case of taking small though decisive steps to introduce only natural products in schools and begin ruling out their harmful counterparts.

There is really no reason to sit back and accept that there are children at risk.

How to get started? Consider the following:

  • Rule out the purchase of any further vinyl products, as they may be inherently toxic. Promote the use of recycled and 100% organic paper products.
  • Increase trash awareness and promote the use of reusable containers.
  • Organize discussion groups to air concerns and plan initiatives.
  • Check all cleaning supplies and immediately replace with chemical free products.
  • Ensure all craft supplies used are 100% safe and natural.
  • Eliminate the use of pesticides and chemicals both inside and outside the building.

The list goes on to encompass every part of the school where harmful substances may be in use. It isn’t a case of trying to revolutionize the whole establishment overnight, but rather to build awareness and take the first steps toward insisting on chemical free schools as these chemicals can cause harm to kids and teachers alike.

A Clear Choice: Fully natural, safe and organic products for use in schools are not only beneficial to the health of kids and the planet alike, but are also just as effective and affordable as their chemical counterparts. There really is no excuse for accepting anything less.

Saving the Environment through Natural Organic Solutions

Saving The Environment Through Natural Organic Solutions

By Clifford Woods

It has been a great achievement over the years, to see people embrace new solutions which are meant to conserve the planet we live on.  This is quite encouraging mostly with the use of natural organic products which are environmental friendly like those that can decompose.  Soil,  water,  air,  animals and human beings, make up the environment which need to be maintained in a good shape to ensure that we all enjoy the life and continue to find enough to live on.

The water is quite crucial in our daily lives as well as the soil. This has seen the need to use manure in the process of farming which is quite compatible with the living organisms which live there, unlike harmful chemicals. This is because the chemicals used will often have an adverse effect on the water which people may be drinking downstream. Therefore, even in controlling the pests on a farm, it is good to control them creatively and naturally; like through use of wood ash.

Driving has become quite common and this has led to excessive production of harmful gases in the environment. This has brought on board the use of unleaded fuel which will produce less poisonous gases. This has helped to keep the ozone layer safe and thus no ultra-violet rays coming through to earth.

Power production is yet another area where there is need for people to be aware of needed improvements. This is because scientists have already discovered means of producing energy through friendly ways like the use of solar gadgets. The type of power is quite simple and supplies a lot of energy without a huge bill as well. Through this, the production of electricity generated in a certain area will reduce and thus curb the risk of gases being released into the air. It is quite important for a person to use the public transportation as much as possible instead of always driving a personal car. Harmful gasses are thus reduced as a number of people are using one single vehicle like a bus. Use of a train is also quite helpful as it uses electricity which poses a lesser risk to the environment than fuel.

Natural organic solutions for cleaning has been discovered and thus people are in an advantageous position of being able to use less harmful products. This is in the case of natural organic products which are manufactured with the idea of conserving water or important microorganisms they may come into contact with when being used. Some herbs are also used to clean surfaces and these can kill harmful organisms like bacteria.

The awareness of the need to use power in a manner that does not lead to wastage is on the rise. This is where people are informed on the various power-saving ways like switching off bulbs which are not in use or fluorescent tubes which save on energy usage.

Recycling is another great idea which has come into its own and is getting a lot of positive attention, all in the direction of saving the environment. When papers, plastic bottles and other household items like plates are reused, we all save a lot of resources.

Saving the environment through natural organic solutions

should be given much more attention by one and all. We all live on this planet and the better we take care of it, the better our children and our grand children’s lives will be.
