What kind of organic fertilizer can be used in tropical areas? We're discussing suggestions for environmentally conscious farming methods and we're about to cover the kind of fertilizers that would be useful in our country. Do you guys have any suggestions?

Any would help. Thanks in advance.

Hey guys,

Considering your interest in environmental issues, we hope that you
are able to help us in our campaign to take action creating a
healthier relationship to our planet.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The 11th Hour,” opening August 17th, is an
upcoming feature-length documentary concerning the current
environmental crises caused by human actions. “The 11th Hour"
documents the grave problems facing the planet's life systems,
including global warming, deforestation, mass species extinction, and
depletion of the oceans' habitats. However, the most important
element of “The 11th Hour” is the offering of hope and solutions
for a sustainable future.

In conjunction with the film, our goal is to create an online action
community that will help individuals and groups connect with each
other to help find solutions that will reduce our dependence on
fossil fuels, increase the use of renewable energy, and slow down
consumption of natural resources.

We need your help to enlarge spread the word! Please add us as a friend
and tell your friends about us We would also like to get the word out
about the movie by promoting the trailer on group and profile pages.
The link and embed code for the YouTube video can be found below.
Together, we can reach a broader audience and make our campaign to
create a more sustainable future much more effective.

Thank you for your support.

[Current Mood |thirstythirsty]


Organic jeans look just like regular jeans. Fair Trade, Shade Grown coffee can taste just like conventional coffee. FSC-certified wood looks exactly like wood that's been poached from the rain forest. Unless you're an eye witness or a direct victim, crimes against the environment take place out of sight, out of mind. Shirts hang from racks in America, while the sweatshops that created them are half a world and tons of emissions away. The sales racked up by businesses-as-usual are dependent on withholding information, not revealing it. Paul McCartney once said that "if slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian." It's the same principle for most conventional products. Pesticides, particulate pollution, toxic runoff, industrial waste and shoddy labor practices are necessary to create most things -- but to actually sell the stuff, it's best to keep the public unaware of such things. The environmental sins of conventional businesses are invisible - unfortunately, so are many of the positive actions of good-for-the-world businesses.

Over at TreeHugger, Jerry Stifelman, founder and creative director of The Change, explains why "treehugging businesses should become the most kickass marketers on the planet". (READ MORE...)
