The Water Footprint: an important regeneration standard
Within the regenerative movement, the water footprint is essential to quantifying successful programs. By its nature, regenerative agriculture sequesters carbon from the atmospheric pool and into the soil. As it heals and regains a vibrant ecosystem, healthy, well-structured soil absorbs and retains significantly more water and replenishes the Earth’s aquifers.
For the community at-large, citizens, businesses, governments and educational institutions, it is imperative to use a regenerative perspective in assessing how their current systems and practices impact their water usage. Beyond the quantity of waters used, toxins released into the sewer systems and waterways have far-reaching consequences on the environment.
In the RiA Blog Magazine article, Zero WATER Waste: more than a goal, a necessity, establishes the foundation for Ei’s Water Use | Toxicity Platform.
The initial focus is on water reduction in areas where the “spent water” released into sewer systems or other waterways is laden with toxic chemicals. Thus, water use and toxicity are addressed in unison.
Simple solutions save water, along with toxic-agent use, and make good business sense for companies, the communities, and the environment.
The below Water Use | Toxicity Initiatives are announced and in the formation process:
Ei Conscious Cleaning Initiative
Beyond green cleaning
The Three-Step Straw Initiative
