EcoDepot on The Today Show for Earth Day
– EcoDepot’s Operations Manager, Brian Resch, was interviewed by WGAL TV for a segment on Earth Day. WGAL will share the segment with The Today Show airing 4/14/2023 in the 9:00 hour. WGAL was specifically interested in the Coir Logs, asking how they’re being used to fight erosion along stream embankments and along the coastlines. I went into detail about how the vegetation is the key to making the Coir Logs work so well. The coir logs work hand in hand with the grasses or native plants by establishing the area. Eventually the coir logs will rot away, but the plants root system will continue to protect the embankments. Not only does the vegetation establish the embankment and control the runoff, but it’s also good for the wildlife that live in and around it. Studies have found the juvenile blue crabs and small fish thrive in the native grasses around our Chesapeake Bay. Let’s keep the crabs and fish flourishing by planting more native grass.
