What makes Verm-X so sustainable?
Verm-X has a wide range of sustainable initiatives that further the brand’s ethical status. The brand creates products that have received certification from Organic Farmers & Growers. This means that organic farms can use these supplements without compromising their organic status.
Organic farming reduces the negative impact that toxic agrochemicals have on ecosystems and on human workers also. Not only is this product organic, but it also helps other farmers to be wholly organic too! As bee populations decline, growing crops organically is more important than ever. Verm-X has published advice on the bee population and how to conserve wild spaces on its site.
