It is more important than ever for all of us to become more self-sufficient and be proactive in protecting our planet. We are becoming more aware that this planet has a limited amount of resources. We also are seeing the results of the pollution of our waters and air. Our land is being damaged by chemicals that eventually leach into the water. More and more landfills are dotting our landscape. The good news? We can all do our part to reverse these effects—whether it’s recycling or even growing your own garden with organic seeds.
