The Sustainable Green Team LTD (OTCMKTS: SGTM), an industry-leading wholesale manufacturer and supplier of consumer and industrial wood-based mulch, soil, and lumber products nationwide, today announced that its subsidiary, National Storm Recovery, has signed a 5-year lease agreement for approximately 10 acres of industrial land in Ocoee, FL. National Storm Recovery will utilize the site for an additional wood recycling facility. The property has also been used for wood waste recycling for the last ten years.

This facility’s services are intended to support the City of Ocoee, Orange County, Florida and the State of Florida by providing a temporary storm debris and staging site for disaster-related contractors and for the collection and short-term storage of landscape and tree debris as part of any disaster recovery efforts. SGTM will also be utilizing VRM BioLogik’s Groundswell Continuous Fermentation process to produce soil treatment products that rebuild soil hydration on a cellular level from the collected vegetative and wood waste. SGTM recently signed a partnership agreement with Australia-based VRM Biologik Group, that will bring VRM’s world-leading soil moisture technology, HumiSoil® and XLR8 Bio®, to the United States.

VRM Biologik’s technology uses any vegetative green waste or compostable material, including wood material such as sawdust or chips or grindings from wood material, and applies a catalyst to stimulate natural reactions that manufactures and stores soil moisture. The 100-percent organic material is converted into HumiSoil®, a valuable soil amendment, reducing the need for fertilizers and chemicals while increasing production of agricultural products, including livestock grazing on pastureland.

Tony Raynor, founder, president, and CEO of The Sustainable Green Team, commented, “The timing of our National Storm Recovery subsidiary leasing this new wood recycling facility couldn’t be better coming less than one month after Hurricane Ian hit and our recent partnership with VRM Biologik was announced. Hurricane Ian turned out to be a top 5 U.S. storm and may have caused as much as $67 billion in damage in Florida.”

“With that level of damage, Hurricane Ian deposited millions of tons of organic material in Florida and waste facilities are groaning under the additional load. Our recent partnership with VRM was especially advantageous as we are now working together to help collect the storm debris and process it using the exclusive VRM Biologik technology that enables wholesale gas emissions to be avoided and instead become a resource for depleted soils in the form of VRM’s world-leading soil moisture technology, HumiSoil® and XLR8 Bio®,” concluded Mr. Raynor.
