Watching the documentary, one sentence that really struck me was the “sometimes people take soil for granted” I guess this is like the whole idea why people mistreat our soil, because we see soil everywhere we think that the soil will just be soil and there is nothing more than that and nothing will ever change. Little do we know that soil that we see in everyday life, plays an important parts in our daily life the soils are dying as we mistreat them everyday.
It’s really surprising when I see what how big companies work; because they wanted to grow crops in a large quantities in short amount of time, they changed the system of how they are treating lands. This resulting to an unhealthy soil which makes it really difficult to grow plants and makes it an unsustainable land over time. Though it is very efficient in the beginning, it kills the land, and makes it unproductive as they grew more plants. I guess, this is like the nature of human that we want everything instant because we have “no time”. We want to get the result fast. Well, I can’t really blame companies for hurting the land the way they do now, I feel that, we are also the main cause why big companies tries to make their system more efficient. Because there are lots of demands for foods, companies trying to think how can they meet up to the demand which resulting, in a efficient way to grow fast crops without thinking how that system affecting the soil.
Seeing this documentary really open my eyes to the soil. Something that easily be ignored really plays the most important part in our livelihood. Though it does not look as beautiful as other stones that we value like gold, diamond, or else, soil shines in their own respective part. Without healthy soil, I don’t think we can survive in this environment.
So moral of this documentary, love the soil, or you will die…. hmm, that’s kinda scary…..
