Traditional chemical fertilizers contain phosphorous, nitrates and pesticides. These chemical compounds make their way to lakes, streams, ponds and bays where they produce an overabundance of algae and plankton. This creates an imbalance that depletes precious oxygen that wildlife needs to survive.
The largest “dead zones” in North America is in the Gulf of Mexico and is larger than the State of New Jersey and growing every day. Other places where dead zones are growing include the Great Lakes, the Everglades, the Chesapeake Bay and the Barnegat Bay. The "dead zone" in the Barnegat Bay has caused NJ to pass the strictest cosmetic fertilizer regulations in the United States.
When you use Holganix, you’re reducing the use of nitrates and phosphates by as much as 90%, and helping to reduce the impact of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides on our environment.
