Every year on the 22nd of April, Earth Day is observed worldwide, focusing on the major threats and issues our planet faces, such as plastic pollution, deforestation, and climate change.
This year the focus is on natural processes, emerging green technologies and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.
Here at AquaBio we live and breathe this focus – Helping Nature Heal Itself™.
An example of a technology using a natural process is a Floating Treatment Wetland. They are able to filter and clean up polluted water. These constructed wetlands can remove excess nutrients and other contaminants from the water by utilizing natural microbial activity to breakdown water contaminants. They create a concentrated wetland effect, with one 250 sq ft island equivalent to 1 acre of wetland surface area.
Floating Treatment Wetlands is one example of the creative approaches AquaBio has been using for years. We specialize in using natural solutions for man-made situations, focusing on integrating products, services and technologies.
So, let’s do our part, enjoy and protect Mother Earth, not just today, but every day. But, also push our communities, industries and governments to play their part, and do their “Acts of Green” (https://www.earthday.org/take-action-now/) to help make a change for future years and generations to come.
