I am still new here (pardon me if I accidentally disobey any Newbuddhist rule) and I wonder if I could get any thoughts or solution to my problem here.
Its about our livelihood. We sell seeds, plants, and gardening tools here in Indonesia. Until now we have managed not to sell or distribute any kind of chemical or non chemical pesticide, due to Buddhism teaching in right livelihood (do not sell poison).
But our store is now expanding a lot and some visitors ask for pesticide if they have pest problem. We ignored and said that we do not sell pesticides, just fungicide. But our competitors have grown a lot due to this product.
My question is: How do you think or feel about selling pesticides? I have read a lot of sources, some of them said that it is a wrong thing to do, some of them said that usage of pesticide is inevitable anyway but you should avoid selling them, etc etc.
Please give your opinion, even 2 words couny
