SXSW Interview: Jason Aramburu of Re:Char

In case you missed South by Southwest last week, we’re working to bring the best sustainability thinking from the conference to you this week via some thought-leader video interviews conducted on the ground in Austin. View them all here.

Jason Aramburu is the founder of Re:Char, a company that empowers subsistence farmers in the developing world to enhance their crop yields and supplement their income while trapping atmospheric carbon and enriching depleted soils. Additionally, the company is launching a bio-char product in the United States that will help their efforts overseas. It’s called “black revolution” and I had the change to ask Jason a little bit about it:
