FIVE REASONS WHY #SOILS4NUTRITION ARE IMPORTANT

  • About 1/3 of our soils are already degraded;
  • Over the last 70 years, the level of vitamins and nutrients in food has drastically decreased;
  • Over 2 billion people are affected by hidden hunger or micronutrient deficiency;
  • Nearly 50% of our household waste could be composted to nurture our soil.
