“I was taught by grandpa to take care of what we grow, and if we take care of it–it’ll take care of us.”

–Shane Williams, Shane Williams Farm

Healthy soil is key to just about all life, and yet, we’re losing the equivalent of two football fields of soil every minute. Because of our depleted soils, we now have to eat EIGHT oranges today to derive the same amount of nutrients from the ONE orange our grandparents ate. 

At Better Earth, we recognize the urgency of this issue and are on a mission to protect and revitalize our American soil by launching our compostable Farmer’s Fiber Collection.

Watch & share the video on Youtube

Here are just a few ways the Farmer’s Fiber Collection supports American farmers and their soil: 

  • Made from native, perennial grasses like switchgrass, sorghum, & miscanthus 
  • Helps rewild farms which brings back pollinators and other wildlife 
  • Reduces annual tillage and carbon releases 
  • These grasses have roots up to 12 feet long that are great for carbon sequestration 
  • These grasses can help rebuild depleted soils on sections of the farm 
  • These grasses can be used as a feedstock for livestock on the farm 
  • Supports over 60 farmers in the Southeast 

But we can’t do it alone. Meet our American partners helping us build the Sustainable South and rebuild soils through sustainable packaging in our new video.
