Save Soil

Why Eco- Friendly Alternatives Save Soil

  • All of the greatest ecological and social challenges of our time – biodiversity loss, food and water scarcity, global warming, poverty – are intimately linked to the health of soil. Without revitalizing soil, none of these issues can be holistically addressed.
  • Dying soil is responsible for 86% of biodiversity loss on the planet. Water scarcity is a result of degraded soil being unable to absorb water. Food of course, cannot grow unless soil is healthy.
  • Unhealthy soil is one of the largest contributors to climate change. Whereas healthy soil can actually absorb and remove almost 40% of humanity’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Worldwide, 52% of agricultural soil is already degraded, and an acre of soil turns into sand every second. According to the UN Food & Agricultural Organization, the world could run out of cultivable soil in 60 years. For soil to be able to support healthy crops, it must have at least 3% organic content. But here are some statistics from across the world:

  • 62% of the land in India has less than 0.5% of organic carbon.
  • The US has lost 50% of its topsoil.
  • 74% of the soil in southern European agricultural nations has less than 2% organic carbon.
  • Up to 65% of land in Africa that could have been used for agriculture is degraded, while desertification affects 45% of the continent’s land area.
  • 45% of croplands in South America and 74% in Mexico and Central America are degraded.
  • With the participation of 3.5 billion citizens, or 60% of the world’s voting population, together we can make this happen.
