Integrity throughout the entire product-life cycle
Ei is a creator, an incubator. Ei determines what could be done that is not being done and gets it done. Ei brings the possible out of impossible. Ei identifies pioneers and creates heroes. Ei is Regeneration in ACTION.
In honor of Ei's ten-year anniversary, a three-article series celebrates the tremendous Decade of Impact.
The first article, "A Decade of Impact: History & Background," chronicles the profound work accomplished during the Green Foodservice Alliance (GFA) reign (2008 - 2009) that laid a powerful foundation for Ei's 2010 formation. Ei Founder & CEO Holly Elmore founded the GFA in 2008 within the Georgia Restaurant Association umbrella.
The seemingly magical gift of plastic came with a double-edged sword filled with the potential to destroy life as it is currently known on Earth.
In less than seventy years, humans managed to infiltrate the Earth with micro and #nanoplastics from discarded single-use and durable products in literally every nook and cranny, ranging from the arctic snow caps to the depths of the oceans and everywhere in between.
It is time to shift perspectives from human-focused to life-focused and let the Earth show us how to heal the damage inflicted. Answers will come to those who live and take action from the heart.
GREAT NEWS: hydroponic farming uses approximately 10% of the water consumed in soil-based agriculture. If enclosed, hydroponic farms eliminate the use of the "cides" (insecticides, pesticides and herbicides). Food safety improves as soil-borne diseases are not a factor. These are only a few of the benefits of hydroponic farming included in the "A Hydroponic-Agriculture Renaissance" article.
With the global population and desertification escalating along with a diminishing clean water supply, hydroponics farming holds promise to feed the world's citizens with healthy, nutritious food produced in a cost-effective and water-conscious manner.
