The environment and social conscious people of this area shown great level of interest on this day. MUKTI seen a great interest among the people of this area. The people of this area are really having environmental awareness and everyone wants to be responsible by taking part in the movement by which society gets benefited.
MUKTI thanks each and every person of this area as they contribute to the initiative to help the farmers of Sunderban. This is a great contribution to greater environment and health cause.
As per the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine, Organic produce is 30% less likely to be contaminated with pesticides than conventional fruits and vegetables. The research shows that insecticides and pesticides in our daily food can cause many sever health issues such as cancer. Often organic vegetables are fresher as no preservatives are used for these types of vegetables. Indirectly organic vegetables and foods help to have better environment for us by reducing soil pollution, improving fertility of soil, conserving water and energy. Organic foods are also GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) and GE (Genetically Engineered) free. Many studies found that consuming GMOs may cause internal organ damage, slowed brain growth, and thickening of the digestive tract.
Therefore, time has come to understand the need of organic foods and how we can improve our own health condition as well as leave our Earth in a better condition for our future habitants. Few years back MUKTI has taken an initiative to promote the organic agriculture in Sunderban. MUKTI has successfully trained thousands of farmers in Sunderban on organic farming practices. After few years of intense work and effort today a large amount of lands in Sunderban has been transferred into organic farm and considerable amount of organic vegetables are being produced.
However due to high production cost of organic foods it is a challenge for the farmers to get their desire cost. MUKTI has taken an initiative to help these farmers by creating a platform to sell these organic produces. As part of that initiative today especially at several places of Kolkata, MUKTI Fresh organic bazar is a well-known name. MUKTI Fresh is bringing the best quality organic vegetables and rice/daal/egg etc. to several residential communities in Kolkata.
