Surface Cleaner: Making Friends with Germs’ Worst Enemy

For all intents and purposes, there are two types of home cleaning: surface cleaning and deep cleaning. Deep cleaning is the intensive type that you probably do on a more occasional basis, down on your hands and knees scrubbing until your arms are sore. Surface cleaning is the easier type, like wiping the counters off […]

Kat Braza - No way! Cell phones are considered a high-germ item? I have never thought about this before.. The bathroom is a given.

Trayvon - I go to a gym where it is mandatory to wipe down equipment after use. I’m such a clean freak though that I bring my own towl and sanitizer. The one I have though has a harsh odor though so this subtle product sounds better.

Sammy Largo - Germs shmerms. I can understand giving things a wipe down every so often but other than that it’s not on my mind and I have never had sickness from it.

Ralf - great gift for my gf. she is a clean freak big time and she loves organic products.

Boosting Your Plants’ Health Without Chemicals

If you’re like most farmers and gardeners, your plants could probably use an extra boost from time to time. Instead of relying on chemical fertilizers that take their toll on the environment and your health, you can easily find natural and organic fertilizers that work just as well (without any of those pesky side effects). […]

sarahluvzveggies - great content! i have started a compost bin which i learned needs nitrogen and carbon. i’ve been putting lots of kitchen scraps in it but i need more plant material which i do not have enough of on my property…

Trayvon - Concentrated fish powder. I have not heard of that addition before. I read it lasts for 4-5 months before next application, that’s a good length of time.

rob - sarah, ask around for local suppliers of plant material or search people’s organic waste bins in your neighborhood when they put them out to be picked up. be careful about what you take though.

Nancy Evans - I have been composting for some time now and I am always interested in trying new supplements to add to enhance plant life. The fish powder sounds like a great product to try. I have seen a video about a man growing large vegetables primarily because of a special compost tea he made.

Using Shark Cartilage for joint issues

This is the response by Seagate to a customer’s inquiry regarding the possible use of shark cartilage for their joint issues. On occasion, the explanations we provide to important customer questions are important enough that they should be available for viewing by all customers. Dear Ron: We shipped a 300-cap bottle of the shark cartilage […]

Nancy Evans - Thanks for explaining how the process works. I am definitely more interested in decreasing the joint pain altogether than just temporarily relieving it.

Emanuel - Taking painkiller would actually be more expensive over time. If you just cover the problem you will have to continue coming back to it but if it is addressed then you are better off.

rob - seagate has been doing these studies since 1993 and has backing from ucsd. that’s pretty impressive and shows the product has a success rate.

Lauren - Arthritis runs in my family consistently and my older relatives have been using this product and have noticed positive results. I’m so relieved they don’t have to keep taking painkiller because I know it will just get worse!

Kat Braza - That is a great option – one less thing to worry about. Are notifications sent out to remind us about the auto-ship order? I have done auto-ships before where I forgot about it and had to call the company.

Lauren - 5% discount, sweet! Makes sense to do auto-ship if you are going to be making purchases anyway plus being rewarded a discount. I order products for my family frequently so this is helpful.

Trayvon - Sounds good to me. I make smoothies all the time and need to constantly keep my supplements stocked so if I can just have it shipped to my home automatically I will never have to worry about it.

Sammy Largo - Does Seagate have a referral option? That would be a win-win option for everyone 🙂 Especially with the auto-ship.

Richard (Founder) - Sammy – we are currently working on this, check back with us in a few weeks and we will give you the update, it’s exciting news though!

Richard (Founder) - Hi Kat, yes you will receive a confirmation email each time your next auto-ship order is processed.

Keeping Soil Where it Belongs on Organic Farms

Not only is the loss of topsoil to erosion a worldwide environmental issue, but it can also result in hefty fines from city and state departments. On organic farms, soil erosion is simply the gradual process of wind, water, and environmental factors deteriorating the land. It often becomes a catch 22 when farmers cause their […]

Shirley R. - A great place to learn about limiting erosion in your specific area would be a local nursery or gardening group. They will know exactly what you are talking about and make recommendations.

rob - i can imagine this being a nightmare for larger farms. there are no-till gardening methods though where you don’t disturb the soil and decrease erosion. i am not sure if large farms use no-till methods…

Sammy Largo - Yes Shirley! I went to a near-by plant shop to ask about gardening and they were able to give me lots of specific info about the area. Home Depot on the other hand is less informative!

Kat Braza - I live in an apartment, I don’t have to worry about this hahaha. $1.5 million though? That is a serious fine.

Seagate Donates Broccoli Capsules to The Lakota Indian Reservation

Making A Difference. By Kathleen M. Riley, ND (Guest Post) About 10 years ago, I was introduced to the plight of the Lakota-Sioux tribe by Rochelle Ripley, who created a non-profit organization called HawkWing in Glastonbury, CT. At that time I was moved by her efforts to solicit donations of new books for children on the […]

Lauren - The highest infant mortality rate out of North America AND South America is within this South Dakota tribe. Amazing.

Shriley R. - I have only been on one reservation in Southern California closer to Mexico. The people were not living in the greatest conditions but the Lakota-Soux tribe sounds to be in a much more challenging situation. That is great that you assisted them.

sarahluvzveggies - wow, i did not know supplement broccoli sprouts have so many health benefits. that’s awesome they have holistic alternatives rather than going directly to costly therapies.

Emanuel - Thanks for making the donation Seagate. Reservations need all the help they can get. I have native roots and have attended powwows since my childhood where I met many natives and visited reservations.

Dear Seagate – What can I do about a fungal toenail infection?

Every week we will be posting anonymous questions from our customers. Everything from correct dosage, to our farming methods, and much more. Dear Seagate I was referred to your website for its promotion of Olive leaf. I was researching ways to lower my blood pressure, and someone who is a fan of yours said you […]

rob - i’m right there with you mark ! one thing that keeps me active is gardening. i like it because not only am i beautifying my property but also because it gets doing something physical outside!

Trayvon - Would this be ideal for athlete’s foot? I run practically every day and there are times where my feet take a toll! I am interested in healthier options tho.

sarahluvsveggies - i luv learning that olive extract has healing properties. it seems like such a simple ingredient right under our noses could have many uses?

Kat Braza - Those are great prices listed for the OliveViate and Olive Leaf Extract. Plus a buy 1 get 1 free deal? Sweet! These are great to have when it’s needed!

Thinking Differently About Sharks

It’s time to start thinking differently about sharks. When many people think of sharks, images of gruesome attacks and inhumanely-acquired fin harvesting come to mind. Since we don’t practice any form of shark fishing, our shark cartilage supplements are made from byproducts of local seafood processors who produce a small amount of shark meat for […]

rob - joint pain eh? that’s what i’ve been dealing with for some time now since i’ve been gardening this summer. will be trying this product!

Nancy Evans - I actually purchased this product for my husband for his joints and he’s been feeling better since using it. Not to mention it’s easy to take since it can be mixed with beverages.

Lauren - It seems the sea offers many benefits – omega 3 and now shark cartilage I have just learned. What else from the sea benefits health?

Emanuel - ugh this sounds like a great product. my body has been in agony from a recent injury at work and i’ve been looking for a more natural remedy than buying pain killer from the store.

Fighting Household Germs: Who Needs Chemicals When You have Nature?

Many people would love to claim they’re allergic to housecleaning to escape tiresome chores. But depending on what products you’re using, you could legitimately be putting your health at risk. Pull a bottle out from below your sink at random and read the back of the label. How many of the ingredients can you pronounce? […]

Kat Braza - On the topic of harmful chemicals in the household – I was appalled when I learned the baby shampoo I buy contains formaldehyde! That is the reason why they don’t cry, the formaldehyde numbs the eye. Apparently they say they are in the process of removing it.

Shirley R. - What! I’ll have to tell my kids, they use no tear shampoo on their kids all the time. Who would think that type of chemical would be in a baby product?

Trayvon - I agree on the toxicity of many mainstream household products. I have cleaned my bathroom a few times to the point where I almost passed out and altogether stopped cleaning hehehe yea it’s a bachelor pad for sure now. I love the ingredients in this Seagate cleaner.

Kat Braza - Right Shirley? Unbelievable! lol Travon @ bachelor pad. I’ve actually been using the Seagate’s olive cleaner since they started selling it and it’s been great. Cleans up without making my home smell toxic.

Mulch: The Organic Farmer’s Best Friend

Regardless if you’re growing a tiny backyard garden or operating a large-scale organic farm, mulch should be one of your very best friends. Not only do mulches help keep pesky weeds at bay, but they also can help prevent disease, enrich the soil with organic matter, conserve moisture, and maintain soil temperature. Besides, mulch makes […]

Nancy Evans - I am currently residing in Southern California and I have been wanting to add mulch to my property for various reasons but I do not have anything producing mulch! (It’s so dry here). I am going to have to buy mulch… Any advice on how to go about this?

Shirly R. - It’s definitely more fulfilling to use grass clippings, wood chips and other natural alternatives rather than synthetic soils. I sometimes invite my kids and their families over to help 🙂

rob - nancy – go to a local nursery and ask if they know of compost suppliers in the area, they usually have a few contacts to share if you need bulk quantity.

Lauren - Wow, I did not know mulch was such a great alternative for fighting weeds. That’s awesome! Dealing with weeds is not my favorite thing to do :/
