DRIVING SYSTEMIC CHANGE
Over millennia, seaweed has evolved extraordinary protective and restorative mechanisms to survive against extreme conditions – from UV rays to constant wave action to temperature fluctuations. It’s little wonder that seaweed has become the world’s wonder plant.
Sustainable seaweed farming and seaweed based products provide a systemic solution to help turn the tide on climate change, ensure food security and create ‘blue’ jobs and alternative livelihoods for fishing communities.
RESTORATIVE FOR THE PLANET
Seaweed absorbs CO2 which help reduce ocean eutrophication.
Seaweed absorbs excess nitrogen from surrounding water which helps reduce ocean acidification.
Seaweed farms protect seabeds, increase biodiversity and provide defence against coastal erosion.
Seaweed farms do not need cleared land – preventing deforestation.
No fertiliser or pesticide needed.
Seaweed does not need freshwater, unlike land
LIFE-CHANGING FOR PEOPLE
Seaweed is a nutrient-rich food source which will help ensure food security, especially given soil erosion and drought.
Seaweed bioactive extracts offer wellness benefits including gut and microbiome health, anti-inflammation and immune stimulation.
Seaweed farming and processing creates jobs along rural coastal communities and throughout the value chain.
