We hear a lot about sustainability in our industry today. But what does sustainability actually mean? According to Dictionary.com, “sustainability is defined as the quality of not being harmful to the environment, depleting natural resources and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.” Well, that definition is all well and good on paper, but what does sustainability really mean? On a September 5 webinar entitled Sustainability and preparing for another winter, Professor Cale A. Bigelow of Purdue University stated that in reality, sustainability includes three major inter-related components otherwise known as the 3 Es:

Environmental protection

Economic prosperity and continuity

Equity or the social well-being

"I think Holganix fits all of our needs in the best possible way!" - State University of New York at Fredonia

It all started when The State University of New York at Fredonia started creating programs campus-wide to involve less chemicals and more organic products. That program involves everything from cleaning products to the way we care for our plants and turf,” says Head Grounds Supervisor Richard Newton of his search for organic turf products. Holganix caught his eye because it allowed Newton to reduce the use of synthetic fertilizer use on campus grounds and fields. So far, Newton reports that the increased “root growth we have seen has not only caused the turf to absorb more nutrients, thereby cutting down on waste and runoff, but also allowed us to cut down on our chemical fertilizer by 20% this first year alone.” Click the Read More button to learn about Newton's experience with Holganix.
