Environmental Heroes Dig Deep for Erosion Control Solutions
Orlando, FL - It was opening day for exhibits and erosion control solutions at
Environmental Connection ’11. GEI Works joined thousands of fellow environmental heroes in the fight for erosion control. For the next two days, participants dug in, talking and sharing technologies and techniques.
The tried and true method of erosion control is vegetation, which GEI Works/Granite Environmental was promoting at EC ’11. With samples galore, hundreds of participants were getting hands-on experience with erosion products such as woven geotextiles, nonwoven geotextiles, turf reinforcement mats, and unique coconut coir products.
GEI Works was also promoting vegetation growth as a viable solution through their joint campaign with The Nature Conservancy to “Plant a Billion Trees” in the Atlantic Forest. It is home to 23 species of primates, 1,000 species of birds, and more than 20,000 species of plants. Unfortunately today, only 7% of the forest remains. For every unique business card donated at EC ’11, GEI Works donated one dollar, which planted one tree. The starting goal was $1,000 / 1,000 trees.
Checking in with President Mark Wilkie, he stated, “Today has been a huge success. It is a pleasure teaming with industry leaders to share and discover new technologies that build comprehensive solutions for clients as the economy rebounds strongly. We are very proud to be assisting the Nature Conservancy in the Plant a Billion Trees campaign. The response from show participants and their willingness to partner with us has been phenomenal. Together we are planting trees today for the forest of tomorrow.”
