"I like Milorganite because it offers a natural way to deliver important nutrients to my lawn and garden, without using harsh synthetic chemicals that are potentially dangerous to the environment. Equally important, the process of making Milorganite actually improves the environment and watersheds around Milwaukee. In contrast, the making of synthetic fertilizers utilize a tremendous amount of fossil fuels, something not many people factor into the equation. The bottom line; Milorganite is better for the environment where it's made, and wherever it's used"
