Non-organic food production promotes the use of pesticides and chemicals which can pollute water and the environment by making their way into the food chain. Many pesticides don’t just kill the target pest, they can affect other wildlife by contaminating watercourses or disrupting ecosystems.
In contrast, Organic farming doesn’t allow any synthetic pesticides and herbicides. Research suggests that if all UK farming was organic, pesticide use would drop by 98%! Meaning that organic farms are a haven for wildlife.
