A. Background of the Study
Studies have shown that chemical pesticides linger in the atmosphere, the ground and in our waterways long after they have ceased to be used in a given area. Almost 100 years of chemicals placed on fields across the world all add up to quite a bit of lingering pollution!
In addition to helping improve the environment and decreasing the chances of accelerated disease in your family, going organic can provide mental and physical benefits and long-term money-savings. We can make an all-natural insect repellent which is affordable and environment friendly. Through research we found out that there are different kinds of natural repellents and this experiment was the one we chose because of its benefits.
B. Statement of the Project/Objectives

We did not just help ourselves but we can also help others and most especially we can help save Mother Earth. [continues]
