{{#badges: ToxicSludge}} EarthBlends Plus™ Pellets is a product sold as fertilizer but made from sewage sludge.[1] Hundreds of communities across the U.S. sell toxic sludge products that are typically renamed biosolids and sold or given away as "fertilizer" or "compost" (and often even labeled or marketed as "natural" or "organic").

According to the WeCare Organics LLC website:[2]

"EarthBlends Plus™ pellets are marketed by Earth Blends Inc., under the management of WeCare Organics LLC, headquartered in Jordan, New York. EarthBlends Plus™ Fertilizer pellets are produced by the New England Fertilizer Company and meet the USEPA 's most stringent "Exceptional Quality Standards" for biosolids-based soil amendments. An organic fertilizer, EarthBlends Plus™ is comprised of 65% organic matter and provides plants with a slow release of essential micronutrients."

Despite the claim that EarthBlends is organic, the USDA organic standards specifically forbid the use of sewage sludge in organic agriculture.
