The Biggest Threat – Saving the Soil

Save Soil – SAVE SOIL – Sadhguru

The greatest threat to our lives is everywhere, and yet you know it, no one talks about it: The Soil.

Soil is the largest ecosystem on the planet and it is dying.

Look around you… Everything you see, comes from the ground, our whole history as human beings, everything literally comes from the ground. Soil is absolutely necessary for life.

Soil is the habitat in which trillions of lives thrive, including our own. IF the soil loses its richness, then we are lost.

Nobody knows about it, nobody talks about it, but it is dying fast and we do nothing to remedy it because we are not aware of it.

Scientists around the world and UN officials say it clearly: Soil fertility is plummeting.

  • We have only 80 to 100 harvests left, or 45 to 50 years of arable land on the planet.
  • 52% of the world’s cropland is already deteriorated
  • We are losing 1 acre of soil in the world every second, the equivalent of more than 40 million soccer fields a year.
  • In 2045 we will produce 40% less food and the population will be 9.3 billion people, there simply will not be enough food for everyone. Wars will break out over food shortages.
  • In 60 years, all the world’s fertile soil will be gone.


For the soil to be fertile, it must have at least 3% organic matter. The loss of organic matter converts the soil into sand.

The world’s agricultural soil is depleted, more than 50% of the topsoil has already disappeared.

In a spoonful of fertile soil there are more microorganisms than inhabitants on the planet, they are found in the first 40 centimeters of soil, there is the basis of life on the planet, the basis of millions of lives and species, including yours.

Our agricultural soil no longer has the nutrients, it has dropped 90% in the last 100 years.

If today you wanted to have the nutrients that a piece of fruit like an orange gave you in the 1920s, you would have to eat 8 oranges. We are eating fruits and vegetables that do not provide us with what the body needs.

60% of the world’s population suffers from nutritional problems due to soil poverty.


Increase organic matter to at least 3%.

Opening the land with a plow to expose it to the sun is the basis for the destruction of microbes and microorganisms living in the soil.

By shading the land with vegetation and enriching the soil with plant litter and animal waste, we help preserve the life within.


It is important that governments around the world take this into account.

Soil health needs supportive policies in all nations

Policies need the support of the people

People’s support needs awareness

the social good

That is why from WAKE UP and in collaboration with El Bien Social, we want to support the initiative of Conscius Planet: SAVE SOIL, led by Sadhguru, to spread this initiative all over the planet.
