Day 56 ♥
Today I was running low on Organic Oranges, so I thought I would take a walk to the next small town along from us on the railway line to get a few more. I am getting a big Organic Orange delivery tomorrow, but then a girl can never have too many Organic Oranges in her larder!
It is a great walk, off the main road and through the Pineapple fields, which are at this moment full of baby Pineapples ripening up in the Summer sunshine. I was on my journey back when I heard a loud noise and there not far behind me in the middle of the field was a large crop sprayer! Yikes!
So I went at a fast pace, trying not to bump my precious cargo of Oranges, and just managing to stay ahead of the monster machine with its big arm stretching out across the field.
But it did make me think of all that is unseen. Suppose I had come along half an hour later, all the baby Pineapples looking fine and dandy in the morning sunshine, but they have just been sprayed with some toxic chemical - how would I know!?
When I am out walking, I often see council employees spraying the footpath for weeds, or people spraying their gardens, this is all the seen. But how often have I walked across a park that has only just been treated with chemicals - and simply not known it.
The chemicals used on our fields, parks, and foods are invisable for the most part to our naked eyes. But they are there. Unseen yes, but not unfelt.
Because of all the toxins that I have no personal control over, then I desire to be as chemical free in the areas of my own personal choice, such as food, household cleaners, my garden, and the fruit trees and bushes in my garden.
Closing my eyes will not make the chemicals go away, looking for only the visable toxins will not make the invisable ones disappear, but every small personal choice that I make for a chemical-free lifestyle will unite with all the other chemical-free choices being made all over the world, to help create a more beautiful environment. ♥
Sometimes the enormity of a situation can seen daunting, but I do believe that it is all the little actions adding up together that can make all the difference ♥
