The term sustainability is used more and more but there is a multitude of different definitions and applications for this term in the horticultural industry. Sustainability is defined as the “avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance.”
When I started BioSafe Systems over 20 years ago, the terms “green” and “sustainable” were not commonplace. If one was to try and categorize something in terms of being green back in the early 90’s, it was most likely either “organic” or a “crunchy,” meaning that you ate granola and were out to save the world.
The mainstream media have embraced the Green Movement, which seems to be an off-shoot of the ecology movement of the 1970’s and loosely attached to the political Green Party established in Germany. The green movement embraced the concept of helping to avert global warming, reduce waste, stop water pollution and help feed a hungry world.
Activists state that to slow global warming, we need to change our buying habits to only purchase so-called “earth-friendly products.”
Here at BioSafe, we have a very clear definition of what “Green and Sustainable” means to our company and how we use these principals to develop our products by.
