Canadian scientists have recently found that compost in their potato fields has helped to prevent soil erosion and improve water retention. The findings come just as Canada celebrates "Soil Conservation Week."

With the addition of the compost to the potato fields in Canada, crops have yielded higher returns, soil quality has improved, and water drainage has also improved. These findings are significant because they may lead to a reduction in soil erosion throughout crops all over the world. However, according to Canadian scientist Linnel Edwards, "People would have to be willing to change and think with a greener mentality."

In a society where consumerism is largely the end all, do you think people will adopt this new way of thinking green? Or do you feel that only a few select regions in the country or world will feel that way?
