Asian Country of Bhutan Goes Organic

Most of us have trouble turning even one meal completely organic, let alone our entire lives. Today the small Asian country of Bhutan is putting us to shame with the announcement that within the next decade they aim to phase out chemicals from farming, thus turning the whole country organic. 

According to a report in the Huffington Post, while Bhutan is already largely organic, Jigmi Thinley, Bhutan's prime minister, said at a sustainable development conference earlier this year that he wants to make "the 'raised in Bhutan' label synonymous with 'organically grown.'" Now if only the rest of the world would follow their lead.
