Organic gardening supply stores and nurseries. The use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides may yield short-term results but can cause long-lasting damages to our environment and health. For example, the abundance of nitrogen released from chemical fertilizers is contaminating waterways, damaging aquatic life, and polluting groundwater. The mining of phosphate damages the environment and its production creates radioactive by-products (Inspiration Green). On the other hand, the use of chemical pesticides is found to pose health risk (EPA). Using native plants, natural habitats, composting, companion gardening, and other organic gardening techniques can enrich the soil, encourage pollination, and control invaders in a cost effective way without damaging our environment.
