water footprint how much water is needed per capita/yr global WFP m3/yr
fibre foot print what is the global natural fibre´s foot print? what is natural fiber economic chain´s shared vision on decarbonization?
natural fibre as a decarbonizer for every ton of natural fibre included in products... how many tons of CO² emission are avoided? how many green jobs?
cow manure fibre
floors made from manure
in the next 10 years Brazil will need to build 23 million new homes, investing 3 trillion dollars How much of that can be FIBRE?
Annual cocoa production worldwide: 3 million tons – 30% of cocoa is fibre a
Green Jobs beyond zero carbon growing in the degrowth era
