By having our greens growing in ceramic pots just behind the window, we reduce the volume of plastic one-time-use pots wrapped with a foil herbs sold in hypermarkets. Why not stop buying the herbs and start growing them?

Imagine your own plants: basil, coriander, parsley, savory, dill, chive, sage, mint, lemon balm, nettle, lovage, thyme, oregano, radish, kale, and many other greens growing in 10-20 in clay pots. Each sown seed will give you a plant, which either you eat or dry, to offer you tens of more seeds. Imagine.

Imagine how many pieces of plastic pots and how many square meters of foils we can all cut down, when we grow our own greens. And it is just a beginning. When you start growing your food, you get addicted to it. You start experimenting with tomatoes, you plant your own raspberries, and finally start collecting the seeds from ecological vegetables, which you buy in a store. You start drying them, making labels what is what. Next year you want to own your land, at least a small garden, and grow more of your favorite food. Yes, do it. It is future food safety.


It is OK to stay in the city, you don’t have to be a farmer. You don’t have to be a farmer to support organic farming. You just choose organic products, organic packagings, organic living. Select your favorite farms in your region, where you order your winter stocks of potatoes, millet, carrots, pumpkins and onions. Try to buy in hypermarkets as little as possible. Support a local, organic market.

Knowing your food suppliers, you build strong and long-term relationships, which will pay off not only to you and your farmer, but most of all to the children in the future. Why? Because the environment will become less destroyed and exploited. We should all take responsibility for future food safety.
