Benefits of Organics - Fresh Water & OceansBecause organic farmers use no chemical, synthetic or bio-engineered materials, the whole issue of pesticide and fertilizer run-off is avoided. (Water and ocean pollution is an urgent issue in the United Nations Environment Programme.)
Unlike common conventional farms, whose run-off contaminates groundwater (our source of drinking water) and the oceans (where they spark algal overgrowth that suffocates marine wildlife), organic farm methods have minimal to no impact on our water systems.
