Going Organic

When the word organic was mentioned, what springs to your mind? For me, it’s none other than food. Yes, foodstuffs grown or raised without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides or hormones, eg organic rice, organic vegetables, organic chicken, etc. And this term slowly expands to other categories, such as organic skin care and organic clothing. Well, to sum it up, we’re more concerned about leading an organic lifestyle, which means, simple and healthful, yet close to nature.

Do you know that I've been organic crazy at one point of time? No, it's not to the extent of having everything organic, but I've been adding more organic content into my kids' food directory gradually. I've also tried ordering organic vegetables directly from the farm (oh yes, they deliver right to our doorstep!).

Before the unpacking


Surprisingly, they didn't look as fresh as I expected, but you know what? They tasted good! More juicy, and the trick is you would only notice this after you soak the roots in cold icy water.

Have you ever wondered, how could we ensure a continuous supply of organic end product? Just like the egg and chicken cycle, the process would start and stop with non other than organic-friendly products itself. Imagine, we need organic fertilizer to grow organic vegetables. And the residue from this end product (or called organic waste) could be turned into compost, and used to grow more organic vegetables. And the cycle continues.

I was surprised when I found out that we could actually make our own compost. Composting is nature’s way of recycling organic material such as leaves, grass clippings, twigs, fruit and vegetable trimmings into a dark, crumbly, sweet smelling soil conditioner. If you have a garden, you might probably be interested. Why? Because you not only save money by not having to buy soil conditioners and fertilizer, but you could help keep kitchen wastes out of the landfill, besides improving the fertility and health of your soil and able to grow more healthy and beautiful plants.

Well, even though anyone can compost, and it can be practiced by any homes, it still requires a delicate balance between all feedstock’s needing a trained expert and constant monitoring to maintain that balance. Is there an easier alternative? Yes, that’s when N-Viro comes into the picture. It’s amazing how this N-Viro process could efficiently transform organic waste products into beneficial reuse products. And the best of all does not end just there. Besides organic waste, it could also generate alternative energy through their patented processes by converting waste to energy. Isn't that incredicle?

I'm sure many people are still not aware of this good idea, where renewable energy could be generated by none other than our daily bio-organic wastes, or even the waste water sludge! By just using lime and/or mineral-rich,combustion byproducts, we could get opportunity fuels. An opportunity fuel is any type of fuel that is not widely used, but has the potential to be an economically viable source of power generation. Typically, it's unconventional, and usually derived from some sort of waste or byproduct. Which is exactly how the N-Viro Fuel work.

N-Viro Fuel is manufactured from a variety of organic wastes by blending the waste material with one or more mineral by-products and drying the mixture. The resulting product, N-Viro Fuel, is blended with coal or petroleum coke and burned as a coal substitute in coal-fired power plants. The end-result? A similar, yet clean coal equivalent.

Well, with its technology venture into the soil and fuel area, N-Viro does not stop just there. Want to know more? Check it out!

I’m sure with this new technology, not only organic farming could be done in a larger scale where we could all continue to enjoy the longed-for organic lifestyle without much worries, our world would also be a better place to live in.

Go Organic!
