Let Us Make It Happen: Lineapelle hosts the Save Soil movement

It’s supported by 3.5 billion people and 74 governments around the world. Strong of its Let Us Make It Happen, the Save Soil movement reached Lineapelle 100. The goal: to showcase its message on the global crisis caused by the degradation of soil. And, in additional, point out the urgency for concrete political actions. “Lineapelle, which with its exhibitors makes Earth one of its priorities, hosts the Save Soil movement during the fair”, explains a note by the organization. Save Soil “pushes all governments to implement laws that ensure a minimum organic content of between 3% to 6% in all of their agricultural fields, so that they may be healthy and fruitful”.

Let Us Make It Happen

The alarm sounded by Save Soil is strong and clear, and it rang at Lineapelle too, during the presentation that took place at the Green theater. “52% of agricultural land in the world is already degraded”. If this situation was to continue worsening, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture entity (FAO), we could be left with just 60 years of harvests. What would follow would be an inevitable food crisis at global level. Save Soul wants to be a “global response” to this crisis.

Worldwide support

The movement is supported by some UN agencies as well. Save Soil is “an initiative by Sadhguru, yogi, mystic and visionary that spent his life defending biodiversity and made it his mission”.

Soil restoration

The solution proposed by Save Soil is that of “making the soil alive”, revitalizing it on a global scale thanks to vegetable and animal-based organic waste. These types of activities would help the soil recover, increase the revenue of low-income individuals by 75% (according to the World Bank) and could reduce the current GHG emissions by between 25% and 35%, thus returning to 1850’s level, when the 2nd industrial revolution took place. And so, “Lineapelle and Italian tanneries, that have for years made strive to recover and reuse the waste created by the manufacturing process, join the cause by transforming said waste into bio-stimulants and fertilizers for bio-agriculture”.
