We have a lot of commentaries about caring for mother earth and yet we seem to do nothing about the concerns. This matter about how we can continue to survive in an ecologically healthy environment has so much been magnified lately by the current events on global warming.
We can do our part. We can act in our very own small way to help. In a collective and solitary manner, we are the solution, for all we know.
The pollution of the world is brought about mainly by the use of fossil fuel. Among others, fossil fuel is utilized for the production of inorganic fertilizer. Of course, this is important in order to have abundance and sufficiency of our food, a basic human need.
But as we consume our harvests, we forget the fact that we must recycle things and develop the healthy method of making organic fertilizers. We can do this in our kitchen, in our own backyard.
If every household raises the lowly earthworm to absorb whatever bio-degradable wastes around our homes, just imagine how much organic fertilizers can be produced. Not only then can we avoid polluting further the environment, we can have healthy foods from the garden.
Global warming has so become significant a topic these days that even the political mainstream has joined the fray. And yet, little is thought about what Charles Darwin called the most organized recycling agents on earth which produce castings, considered the “living soil".
The raising of the humble crawler can be a healthy home business that will put a smile on mother earth. We can try it - all of us who have nothing to do at home. Why not?
