1000 Flowers for the Planet - #587 Go Natural
Many Flower suggestions have been to go organic, but this one is as straightforward as choosing to go natural. Some people find it difficult to source organic foods or fabrics, or they complain about the cost of them and claim they’re unaffordable. So this suggestion is to make it a little easier and suggest you simply go natural. Instead of buying fake foods like non-dairy creamer, margarine and sacarin, buy foods that are actually foods and not processed chemicals: raw sugar, full cream, butter, ground coffee, fruit. You see, the more processing a food has gone through, the less nutritious it is, and your health is suffering because of it. A fantastic book about this, first published in 1998, is called Changing Habits, Changing Lives, by Cyndi O’Meara. It will tell you all about this principle in detail and help you get on track to a better diet and a healthy body.
By going natural we put fewer chemicals into the environment through waste and production. Improving our own health will therefore improve the health of the planet. A healthy planet will sustain us more easily. This should surely be our goal.
