Decoding Organic Eco Sustainable Living

Organic eco sustainable, these words are repeated often. What do they mean? In a nutshell, sustainable is a product, practice or lifestyle choice that sustains natural resources and communities for future generations.  The classical meaning of organic is anything that derives from plants or animals. Organic is now associated with environment-friendly or sustainable living.
Is it necessary for us to practise sustainable living? Or is it another fad that will fade out with time?
The spectre of global warming looming large. Major cities are becoming gas chambers. Taps are running dry. Tsunamis and earthquakes are wreaking havoc. The truth is, we do not have a choice anymore. Either we adopt sustainable living or we perish.
What do we do to become sustainable? We do not have to do a lot. If each one of us takes a few simple steps, we will make this world a much better place.

 Organic eco sustainable use sustainable fabrics:

 Buyer beware! Not everything natural is sustainable. Do you know cotton cultivation for a shirt requires 700 gallons of water? Mono-crop cultivation of regular cotton requires excessive irrigation. This depletes natural resources and reduces the fertility of the soil. Organic cotton cultivation uses minimal or natural irrigation and crop rotation techniques. These techniques strengthen the soil. Cotton farming accounts for 25% of the world’s insecticide consumption. Chemical pesticides can be carcinogenic. They can be harmful to farm workers, flora and fauna and communities. Organic cotton does not use chemical pesticides and fungicides. Deidaa’s 100% organic cotton t-shirts are sustainably sourced, designed and printed in Melbourne.

Homegrown is good:

Grow your own vegetables. Cook your own food. Make gardening or cooking a family activity. Kids can do simple and safe chores in the kitchen. They can fluff up the batter for healthy muffins or toss up a salad with veggies plucked from the backyard. Kids, so trained, will become environmentally aware early in life.
