#WATWB — Climate Positivity!
Did you know that mushrooms could be used to regenerate a forest or a riparian buffer? How about to eliminate an invading colony of ants more efficiently and more safely than any pesticide could do? How about to help cure cancer?
One of my favorite companies, Fungi Perfecti, a mushroom grower that believes mushrooms have the power to change our world for the better through mycoremediation, mycoreforestation, and other mycotechnologies is not just a mushroom grower, but a climate change activist. This year, the company committed to being not only carbon neutral but carbon positive with a long list of projects intended to help the world get back into better balance.
By first setting a baseline and then identifying the places where Fungi Perfecti could make a positive impact — energy efficiency; renewable energy; packaging; forests; and e-wastes — the company set out to improve its standing on the sliding scale of climate change with Gold Standard projects intended to help not only the planet, but the people who live on it. Projects such as the Honduras Coffee Growers Clean Water Project, the WithOneSeed Timor-Leste Community Forestry Programme, and the Biogas Digesters for Farmers in Vietnam, all designed to not only neutralize their carbon footprint, but to make it 10x positive!
Here’s to more companies taking a look at their supply chain and overall operations and deciding what can be done to make their operations more sustainable.
To carbon positivity!
