The Cocoon: Enabling Sustainable Land Revitalization One quarter of the land on this planet is highly degraded, affecting more than 1.5 billion people worldwide. Land degradation from urbanization, over-farming, mining, industry, and wildfires is pervasive and is responsible for about 20% of carbon emissions globally. Nature cannot come back unaided. When tree canopies are lost and soils are destroyed, a vicious cycle is unleashed where water catchment decreases and the sun burns through soils and kills any chance a seed may have at turning into a tree. The magnitude of this challenge requires scalable solutions. Current practices are often ineffective, resulting in unacceptably low survival rates, or inefficient, using expensive systems and wasting water. As a result, Land Life Company developed the Cocoon to enable the sustainable planting of trees on arid and degraded lands, and to make it possible to restore the world’s degraded land at the scale required.
