Save Soil, the brainchild of Indian mystic Sadhguru, is a global movement to enrich the Earth’s depleted, degraded soils with organic matter before it is too late for them to grow enough food to feed increasing populations.

A long time in development, the Save Soil movement is partnering with or is endorsed by major institutions, including the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and celebrities and politicians worldwide. It is organized by volunteers and even has its own theme song. The 64-year-old Sadhguru is serious about the problem. According to his Isha organization website, the mystic is journeying over “30,000 km across 24 nations on a lone motorcycle” to encourage participation.
