Green Eco-Friendly Tips for Your Lawn and Garden

By: Julie Day


Worm poop isn’t romantic, but it’s great for your lawn.

Green Tip #2: Buy Only Organic Products

Simply refuse to buy synthetic or chemical fertilizers, weed killers, and pest control products. These products are directly toxic to you and your family, and their runoff is responsible for water pollution, oceanic dead zones, and animal extinction. Certified organic options are available that cause far less harm to your garden’s ecosystem and the planet as a whole.

Why? This one is twofold. Not only will you make a real difference in the environment by not using toxic chemicals, but the extra expense of organic products will help you reevaluate whether you need so many products at all. The more you ask yourself, “Do I really need this?” the more the answer will be “No.”
