What makes chemical fertilisers bad?

What makes chemical fertilisers bad?

 Imagine if you survived on a diet of choccies, cake and sweets. You wouldn't feel too great, right?! It's the same for your plants. When we feed them inorganic or chemical fertilisers, they become sicker and sicker...and that's just the start! Check out these 3 OTHER reasons to ditch the chemicals for good.


Chemical fertilisers makes your soil unhealthy

Close your eyes and visualise the diversity of the rainforest; animals, insects, trees, shrubs all coexist to create a healthy environment. When you use chemical or non-organic fertilisers, that symbiosis (the relationship between the soil and the plant) is destroyed. Salts and toxins build up to unhealthy levels. Grow Concentrate brings that biodiversity back to your plant!

Chemical fertilisers contribute to the plastic problem

Did you know that the traditional slow-release fertilisers are coated in a thin layer of plastic? Over time, the plastic breaks down into microplastics, releasing the balls of chemical nutrients to your soil. GROSS. Support Pellets are made by worms, not with nasty chemicals and have the same slow release effect. 

Chemical fertilisers destroy the environment

Even if they're used at home, chemical fertilisers end up accumulating in the environment. They pollute waterways and oceans, destroy habitats and contribute to global disasters. As a Wild One, you're contributing to restoring fragile ecosystems. Every product plants a tree to help restore areas destroyed by agriculture.
