Objection :-) Organic refers to certain compounds of carbon.

"Organic" as widely used by the uninformed refers back to historical
ideas that there was something magical/"spiritual" about living matter
and has no place in the 20th or 21st centuries. Most modern weedkillers
are organic in the true sense of the word, however destructive and
polluting they may be. Let's not encourage the further misuse and abuse
of the term.

green_waste seems OK, provided it isn't taken too literally.
