Our mission is to educate people about the environment and promote them to take initiative in leading eco-friendly lives.
Our company’s name “Graviterras” is derived from the latin words “Gravitas”, which means to gravitate towards, and “Terras” which means Earth, hence our core principle is to gravitate towards Earth.
Our mission to protect the earth is essential for today and for the future.
To better understand how to protect the environment,
it is essential to debunk some common myths regarding a factor that proliferates ecosystem destruction - pollution.
Eating local doesn’t reduce pollution
Eating food grown locally or seasonally means that you are eating food that didn’t have to be transported over long distances.
Food that is transported over long distances causes pollution due to the emissions of vehicles.
In addition eating local can help support local farms.
So you can kill two birds with one stone.
Plastic Breaks Down
Plastic does not decompose by itself;
instead, it tends to break apart into microplastics.
There are 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean and 90% of it is from “microplastics".
This is detrimental to our ocean life because fish that consume the plastic ingest harmful chemicals from the plastics, chemicals that pass into humans that eat such fish.
Air pollution is only there if you can see it
While some pollutants can be visible, most gaseous chemicals are invisible.
Pollutants that are invisible include formaldehyde, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide.
These are byproducts of industrial processes and impact the ozone layer as well as us.
