WARNING! Sewage sludge is toxic. Food should not be grown in "biosolids." Join the Food Rights Network.

earthlife is a product of New England Organics sold as fertilizer but made from sewage sludge.[1][2] 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"). earthlife is made from Class A biosolids and sawdust. Whereas this product does not boast about its sewage sludge content, the earthlife website does note that it was the recipient of the 2001 EPA National Biosolids Exemplary Management Award.[3]
