At Enviu our dream with DesertSpring, a pioneering social business, is to harness the unique characteristics of sea buckthorn for impactful applications and it’s innate social and environmental impact.
Crucially, through the use of groundbreaking technology, we are unlocking a global market for sea buckthorn: the Textiles, Clothes, Leather & Footwear sector (TCLF). The TCLF sector is one of the world’s most polluting, deploying many hazardous chemicals and metals, generating tons of waste. Derived from sea buckthorn, our innovative bio-based application offers the industry a sustainable, metal-free alternative.
Yet there is still more. Sea Buckthorn thrives in poor, degraded soils in harsh climates. It fixes Nitrogen – a vital nutrient for the growth of new life – to the soil, reversing the effects of degradation. By professionally sourcing from farms that grow sea buckthorn on degraded land, we contribute to combating desertification, boost local economies and improve the livelihoods of people in affected areas. We’re planning to grow more sea buckthorn on degraded lands and are exploring the possibility in Chile.
Sound like a win-win? That’s because it is!
