Ag fas le cheile! Say yes to a 100 % Organic, Chemical-free and GMO-free Ireland

Ag fas le cheile!   Say yes to a 100 % Organic, Chemical-free and GMO-free Ireland

A future-proof and post-Covid 19 solution for a new way of life to safe biodiversity and help stop Climate Change.

Why is this important?

Dear Friends,

I just created the petition: Ag fas le cheile!
Say yes to a 100% Organic, 100% Chemical-free and 100% GMO-free Ireland.

It would mean a lot to me if you took a moment to add your name because:
A journey’s end matters not, for it is the journey itself
that inspires, enriches and delights.

As I took “the road less travelled” 18 months ago, I could not have imagined the amount of learning to be had on this road; for I am now less dependent on certain modern conveniences than I was in May 2019. Now in November 2020, I am

• 100% shampoo-free
• 100% clothes detergent-free
• 100% washing-up liquid free
• 100% dishwasher liquid free
• 100% all-purpose cleaner free
• 99% bin-free.

In short, grey water that leaves my house is virtually chemical free with a minimal toxic load to the environment. My garden is 100% Organic, 100% Chemical-free and 100% GMO-free and has been for about 10 years.

With the continued support from local Clare businesses and shops, Clare media and a waste prevention grant from Clare County Council, Operation de-Plastification with its “slim your bin or bin your bin challenge” has been able to inform, encourage, support and lead-by-example on the quest to waste reduction, particularly plastic related waste in the shape of single-use plastic bottles and plastic packaging.

With the submission to Clare County Council for the Clare Local Development Plan 2022 – 2028 "100% Organic, 100% Chemical-free and 100% GMO-free", I am hoping to sow the seed for a different Clare, and by extension a different Ireland, to highlight a path that has been taken by other countries successfully and to encourage as many people of all ages and guises, including businesses and politicians, to re-think their habits and attitudes in relation to

• everyday conveniences
• everyday routines
• everyday practices

to aid the recovery of our planet, with an intact environment which in turn will support our future.

The attempt to combine the Operation de-Plastification campaign and the vision for a post-pandemic County Clare, has generated the “ag fás le chéile” petition, where shoppers, sellers and consumers can voice, with their signature, their request for an enduring “green” Ireland. The petition aims to address all people living in Ireland:

• Shoppers:
we want to buy local, sustainable, affordable, nutritious, delicious, organic,
plastic-packaging-free, chemical-free and gmo-free goods
• Sellers:
we want to sell local, sustainable, affordable, nutritious, delicious, organic,
plastic-packaging-free, chemical-free and gmo-free goods
• Consumers:
we want to enjoy local, sustainable, affordable, nutritious, delicious, organic,
plastic-packaging-free, chemical-free and gmo-free goods

Assuring our environment’s and our survival, “the road not taken” may lead to a life and life-style where less is more, as less is more than enough in my experience.

With the kindest regards,

Cornelia Wahli
