Consumers are Greening Their Lifestyles in a Variety of Ways

From hybrid cars to organic clothing, consumers are greening their lifestyles in a variety of ways, starting right in their own backyard. Nature's Touch, a brand of natural, organic and organic-based fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides, has expanded its line of kid- and pet-friendly products to include organic-based fertilizers for vegetables, flowers and plants.

"Consumers are looking for ways to be more green in their everyday life," said Roberta Park, Communications Manager for Nature's Touch. "Gen Xers are particularly using more green-friendly products in their homes, and the lawn and garden are no exception."

Unlike most fertilizers, which require a waiting time before kids and animals can safely walk on it, Nature's Touch allows them to play immediately after the first application.

"Most traditional lawn fertilizers contain insecticides and herbicides, which can be potentially harmful to the environment, as well as children and pets," said Park. "By using an organic-based lawn fertilizer, parents create a safer outdoor environment while being environmentally friendly, and they'll be pleased with the results."

While most fertilizers use high doses of water-soluble nitrogen that seep into waterways and can contribute to environmental problems, Nature's Touch uses a hybrid approach without any hazardous insecticides or herbicides. It's a combination of low levels of water-soluble nitrogen mixed with insoluble organic nitrogen. This produces greener grass more quickly than with other fertilizers and also helps grass maintain its green color for longer.

All Nature's Touch products are available nationwide at Ace Hardware and Cub Cadet(R) Independent Retailers. Products retail just under $10 for a 6-pound bag.
