Environmental protection is the issues arising from our rapid economic development. The slope greening of road slope, river embankment, the green lake shore, is a important task that worth to study and practice. With the continuing development of industrial, urban, traffic, the job to reduce noise, carbon dioxide emissions, urban heat island effect, and absorb solar radiation, improve the urban ecological environment becomes our common responsibility. To reduce the use of high energy consumption, high pollution and high cost hardware, materials, such as steel, cement, stone, concrete replacing by energy-saving, environmental friendly, effective method is our common goal.

Traditional civil engineering measures to protect slope are often focused on strength effect, destroyed the natural ecological environment of harmony and diversity so that every works are full of hard dull without vivid; the concrete surfaces, mortar and stone surface will be weathering, aging year by year, the post-remediation costs in relatively expensive.

At the beginning the vegetation protection is quite weak, with the plant growth, reproduction, succession, the strength increased gradually and the function of preventing slope erosion and fixed slope is strengthened to restore the damaged ecological environment caused by human activities. But the application is limited due to affection of the project conditions, natural conditions and plant growth substrate constraints.

System Benefits
Easy to Install: Bags are layered and then tamped down simply by the installer walking over the bags in order to engage the mechanical advantage of  Earthbag System.

Easy to Transport: Earthbags are light and portable and may be filled with excavated soil or native material available at the site.

Requires no footing: A reasonable level site is all that is required to construct a Earthbags  System structure.

Easily Vegetated: Bags may be filled with seeded medium or hydro-seeded after installation. Bags may be punctured to accept cuttings without rupturing and accepts all vegetation types.

Erosion Control: Root structure of vegetation contributes to the strength of the system providing an added utility in erosion control.

Simple Earthworks System: Provides the strength of interlocking components without using concrete, rebar, wire mesh or other formwork
