AASUD-Why?

About AASUD.

Word aasud is part of book title “Shetkaryacha Aasud” book by Mahatma Jyotirao Govindrao Phule. So we dedicate this campaign to Mahatma Jyotirao Govindrao Phule.


What is AASUD?

AASUD is campaign to spread awareness and encourage people to buy organic food.


Why AASUD?

Pesticides are the #1 cause of

Birth defects,
Many types of cancers
Short-term impacts,
Endocrine disruption,
Acute dangers and
Chronic health efects and more...
Effect on Soil,Water and Atmosphere.

We asked farmers, why not organic farming? First question they asked us, will you buy? So first step is, we should spread awareness and encourage people to buy organic food.

Unless we assure farmer that, we will buy organic vegetable and fruits, they will not crop them.

I appeal all to be part of AASUD.

Please share with every contacts.
