Blue Harvest gets big ovation at ASN Bank World Price Final

Last night at the ASN Bank World Price Final in Rotterdam, Blue Harvest Netherlands was the only finalist to get a spontaneous ovation from the audience after a passionate plea from founder Elvira de Rooij. She explained how the climate impact of Blue Harvest can be compared to turning a very polluting diesel car into an electrical vehicle: Blue Harvest turns ‘normal’ cows into climate neutral cows. By feeding them a very special species of seaweed!
It is of course still better for the climate to eat less meat and dairy …

New Project: Goodget to slash global greenhouse gas emissions one cow burp at a time!

More seaweed! Goodget is starting up a project in The Netherlands with Wageningen University and DELL to grow a special type of tropical seaweed. This seaweed holds the key to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, one cow burp at a time!
