Buyer Beware: Organic Soils Not Always So “Organic”
Date:7/30/2013

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

With all the recent uproar with human waste being used as a fertilizer (and calling it organic) Orange County still decided to support its use in their July 2013 newsletter (see current newsletter here). Even after the Supreme Court (in California Reviews Biosolid Ruling, June 28, 2013 Metropolitan News) got involved in by reviewing rulings on the use of biosolids, cities still engage in the use of this sludge that is re-packaged as “Organic Fertilizer”. The word “organic,” like other terms used in marketing, does not always mean what a consumer believes it means. As with anything, from buying toys to a new car, beverages to frozen foods, the buyer should be aware. That includes being aware of the ingredients in soils consumers buy for their landscaping and gardening, whether a home gardener, a professional landscaper or a master gardener.

In soils, when the term organic is used by a seller or on a package, it may not mean the product is free from unnecessary amounts of toxins and hazardous waste that consumers would prefer to keep out of their yard or garden.

Many kinds of products promote themselves as organic. The government, through the Food and Drug Administration, or USDA, regulates which food products may claim to be “organic,” or make similar claims. However, many food producers still take it upon themselves to be certified organic because they want to have an extra level of trust between themselves and their customers.

Even though the government regulates what is organic in food, they DO NOT regulate what the food is grown in. W
