Samkhya has helped 200+ farmers to switch to organic farming. We are working in Muval, lola and hinglot village. We realise soil is an important element for all the life on Earth.
These days‟ people are concerned about health, that‟s why people have monthly check up, yearly check-up and so on. But have you ever wonder about the so called home-cook food constituents? Today‟s world is eating crops grown in the soil that is heavily contaminated with heavy metals (Cadmium, lead, mercury, arsenic, chromium, zinc, copper, etc.), chemicals (chemical fertilizer, pesticides, insecticides, industrial effluent, etc.). It‟s not the type of mineral but its quantity or proportion in soil that causes toxic effects. Our forefather used cow dung, kitchen waste, plant & agricultural waste in traditional way to keep the soil fertile and healthy. The food is meant to provide body all nutrients for trillions of cells to remain healthy and for the purpose of good taste. Our digestive system is meant to digest & absorb nutrients and not to process and destroy toxins on daily basis. Life these days has shifted to wrong side due to ignorance. Let‟s become aware about our food, how it is grown and what type of soil is used during its growth. The more we follow nature‟s basic principles, the more our body tend to remains healthy.
These chemicals in soil are not only causing soil pollution but due to this we are unknowingly feeding our kids & pets toxins in daily life that has huge impact not only on them but also on coming generations. It‟s good to see that society these days is shifting towards green-products in all areas even in cosmetics. But what‟s the use of such cosmetics which are derived from natural products grown in such soil? Destroying pest/insects of crops completely by use of chemical pesticides & insecticides can give relief to us for time being, but if one go deeper into understanding the working of ecosystem, one will realize that humans have disturb the natural cycle of everything in ecosystem to such an extent that if something is not done right now, then soon humans will be struggling to continue its species on this planet earth. One can compare the size, colour & taste of food grown in your kitchen garden/organic farm with the one you get in market to understand the effect of chemicals. Research has shown that bio magnification of toxins at higher consumer level (like humans) causes their DNA to mutate & may lead to life-threatening diseases like allergies, infertility, cancer, etc.
We are making Ganpati for the past 6 years from mitti and natural colours. We extract colour from vegetables and spices. We believe in complete solutions, we provide Ganpati made from mitti as well as natural colours to prevent water and soil pollution.
