The Aussie answer to the hydromulch shortage

Since its beginning in February 2022, the war in Ukraine has had a ripple effect on global logistics and supply chains across many industries, including revegetation. 

Transport delays and volatile pricing have led to a widespread shortage of imported hydromulch products and ingredients, with disastrous impacts for international brands and the contractors who rely on them. Contractors around Australia are reporting they cannot access the hydromulch brands they’ve been using for years, placing  their committed revegetation projects at risk.

In contrast, contractors using locally manufactured products have been able to circumvent global supply chain interruptions and price fluctuations, and ultimately maintain productivity in their businesses.

At EnviroStraw, our commitment to local sourcing and manufacturing lets us produce and supply our award-winning hydromulch with minimal exposure to logistical complications, so we always have the supply you need to do business.

Our soil scientists have developed a range of hydromulch products proven to establish rapid germination and plant growth, meaning we never sacrifice quality for quantity.

One of our award-winning all-in-one-bag solutions, BFM Complete, combines the benefits of a hydraulic growth media, bonded fibre matrix and biotic growth amendment, delivering long-term, self-sustaining revegetation results and soil protection.

Switching to EnviroStraw is the best way for contractors to protect their businesses from the impact of product and ingredient shortages, now and in the future.
