The goal for safe food and Better health
To Promote and Provide The Highest Quality Organic Products and Services.
MATI Canada is committed to caring for the earth every day of the year. From our carbon neutrality roadmap to the organic movement, we’re always looking for new ways to fulfill our mission of leaving the earth better than we found it.
Organic Movement is one of the missions to establish our goal. It’s pretty simple, how we eat can help save our planet.
MATI Canada will keep Building awareness by promoting organic agriculture for better health and preventing climate change. We will keep Introducing organic farming and Marketing in society. Organic agriculture is a production method that promotes and enhances biodiversity, protects long-term soil health, and reduces the impact of agriculture on climate change by encouraging carbon sequestration in the soil. Canada has a federally legislated standard for organic agriculture which will limit the use of the word “organic” on products and provide a “Canada Organic” logo to be displayed on organic products. The new regulation came into effect on June 30, 2009.
WHY ORGANIC FOOD IS BETTER FOR YOU & THE PLANET
- Support Organics a healthier farm lifestyle and a healthier community
Growing food organically does not harm the surrounding community in which it’s grown. Unlike non organic practices, organics keep toxins out of the air, out of the drinking water and out of the soil. Farmers aren’t exposed to herbicides and pesticides all day; and if food is bought at the market where it’s grown, it reduces transportation costs and emissions.
- Organic farming supports pollinators
Herbicides and Pesticides do not differentiate between good and bad bugs, it simply kills them all. In order for there to be life on earth we need to maintain a certain level of biodiversity; this includes everything from the biggest mammals to the tiniest of insects. Organic farming practices healthy growing techniques that aim to maintain that necessary level of biodiversity.
- Organics don’t inhibit the growth of super strains
Nature always adapts. Spraying chemicals to kill bugs only makes them grow, adapt to overcome the horrible toxins we use to kill them. There will always be something that eats the plant, and it will continue to grow and adapt until we no longer have control over it. The toxins we use will eventually become ineffective and plants and pests will become much more harmful.
- Organic farming maintains healthy soil
Just how your choices at the grocery store dictate your health, they also dictate the health of the earth. Non organic foods are sprayed with extremely toxic chemicals that kill everything other than the crop itself. This includes the living organisms that a plant needs to grow and make the soil nutrient rich. Once those organisms are killed off they are replaced with synthetic fertilizers made up from… you guessed it, more toxic chemicals.
- Keeps harmful pesticides and herbicides out of our beautiful ocean
Everything ends up in the ocean. Whether the chemicals are leaching through the soil into aquifers below, being blown into nearby rivers and lakes; or simply running off into the ocean after the rain. The toxins sprayed on our food are made to kill, and will do just that no matter where they are.
