For Life

Earth-Friendly Idea #7: Many people in Japan have begun to buy organic food for health reasons, and that's a good thing. But by buying organic you are also supporting environmentally friendly farming. The chemicals used in ordinary farming can do tremendous harm to soil, rivers, and wildlife. So buy organic for your health AND the health of the planet.
