Although organic regulations differ by country, different countries have different regulations regarding organic food, but organic food must be grown without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides (Robinson, Segal, & Segal, 2017). Organic foods are grown with natural fertilizers, and they have many advantages; organic farming always helps to make the environment better, and organic food is always fresh (Robinson et al.,2017). In the interest of good health, quality and sustainability, farmers prefer to work hard to meet the standards of organic food. When somebody chooses the organic food, they are helping the food producer or farmer as well (Wholefoods Market, n.d.). In addition, the number of people who prefer to eat organic food is increasing and demand for organic food is probably going to be large in future as well.

It has been observed that not only have temperatures been changing, but different locations throughout the world are experiencing weather patterns that were otherwise abnormal for these locations. In California, although wildfires had always been an issue, this problem has grown much more serious than in previous decades as there has been more extensive droughts. This is not the only example, in many places such as the arctic polar ice caps are melting and in island regions such as Guam, the ocean is becoming more acidic, destroying the coral reefs and sea life. Although there have always been minor changes in climate over time, the extensiveness

Changes in our environment are causing people to shift production and consumption habits of many facets of everyday life. There is great study being put into more sustainable energy sources, a push towards recycling living materials (ex. plastic and aluminum cans being used to build new structures), and other similar movements. One area where changes are being made, but not always largely talked about is adopting an environmentally friendly diet. In 1945 a strange push towards an economically friendly diet, by G.
