Sustainable planning for future resources
For every order of a product from the manufacturer and / or the seller, a part must, always, go to cultivating materials for future use.
The durability of a product is not only its longevity with the consumer, but how the product behaves in the cycle.
The sustainable life cycle does not take effect until the first resource is ripe to harvest, which depends on the product's growth period / leaching time.
After the first generation growth period in the material pool is ripe for harvest, there will always be more resources to create new products.
The material pool
The material pool is used to plant or produce other materials of the variety used for the product.
Products in a Material Pool system work best if there is both a function and a purpose.
What functions & purposes will be necessary will be up to the users to decide.
Therefore, it is important to look at the products that are used and developed today and then apply the sustainability cycle.
The products we use and develop the most, we will probably continue to want to use and develop in the future as well, not only our generation but also the next, and generations after that.
When the first generation of the growth period is ripe and ready for harvest, the growth of the material pool has become the material cost of the product to be manufactured.
After 2 generations, there is no longer any material cost left for the product to be manufactured, but it generates resources for itself and other products.
ViridiFibra's culture cloth is structured according to the sustainability cycle, in this way each roll of cultivation cloth contributes to cultivating new resources for future generations' products, production & services.
Everything you invest today becomes several times more, when the growth period is over.
Since the part you add to your material pool will be the material cost in the future, you will always have more resources than product after the first generation of the material pool's growth period, sustainability is a continuous process.
The Global Challenge
Plastic-based growing cloths for gardening, hobby cultivation and agriculture have many advantages. The downside is the problem of handling and recycling, which contributes to major pollution at the end of each season.
As a result, this causes changes in the different soil layers and you can clearly see examples of the litter that plastic contributes to.
Only 7-10% out of all culture cloth is degradable plastic (bioplastic), but completely environmentally friendly alternatives are negligible.
Plastic has long been at the center of the discussion about environmental problems and sustainable materials.
There is plastic in the sea, there is plastic in the forest, animals eat plastic that ends up in nature etc. These plastics that are allowed to lie in nature can take hundreds of years to decompose completely, they in turn become microplastics that end up in our watercourses, in our soil and in our crops. The animals eat crops with microplastics in them, we eat the animals, the animals eat the animals and the animals also die in nature and the cycle just goes around, as before. Fixed with plastic…
On the industrial scale, arable land is covered globally with
2 million tonnes of plastic annually which is estimated to be
a land area of 80,000 km ^ 2, someone corresponding to two pcs Denmark or
11,204,481 football pitches.
During the life of a product, as I said, its material parts are broken down into fabric, which ends up in its nearby nature & environment and has a positive or negative effect.
By using a material that is broken down into natural substances or residues, the cycle is not adversely affected. Without the product, it instead becomes part of the cycle!
Sweden's garden society
In Sweden 2020, there are over 330,000 ha of usable land owned by private individuals in the form of residential plots and gardens, allotments, greenhouses and agricultural land.
It is estimated that approximately 70%, approximately 6.6 million inhabitants aged 16-84, have access to some form of horticulture.
Of these 6.6 million Swedes, about 5.5 million devote themselves to gardening at some point during the year.
Around 3.2 million Swedes engage in gardening more than 20 times a year.
The trend of gardening is increasing among those who engage in it 20 times or more.
While those who only do it once a year, stay steady.
You can see that it is becoming increasingly popular to grow your own crops.
Approximately 5.3 million Swedes thus have access to some form of self-grown food.
Society has seen a sharp increase in the trend of wanting to live in a villa to take care of their own garden & grow their own fine organic crops.
88% of the cultivation that takes place in households is edible crops.
