Some footage and pictures of the “Black Snow” ash fall residents of the EAA and surrounding communities have to regularly endure and clean up throughout the pre-harvest sugarcane burning season. Residents should not have to continually bear this messy burden especially when sugarcane trash can be utilized for economic gain instead of being annually burned to create smoke and ash! #StopTheBurn #GoGreenHarvest

Anywhere else this scene would likely lead to 911 calls about a potential burning house but in the communities surrounding the sugar-growing region of the Everglades Agricultural Area this is a near daily occurrence during the pre-harvest burning season. The continuous toxic smoke and ash-fall residents endure is completely unnecessary. Especially when the world’s largest and most profitable sugarcane growing nation of Brazil has abandoned pre-harvest burning in favor of green harvesting. It’s time to green harvest in Florida! #StopTheBurn #GoGreenHarvest

The Brazilian sugar industry shows the potential of utilizing sugarcane leaves (“trash”) instead of burning them to produce harmful smoke and ash. Our state has so much to gain from ending pre-harvest sugar field burning which includes taking advantage of sugarcane trash as a valuable biomass resource! #StopTheBurn #GoGreenHarvest

New legislation has helped push Brazil’s sugarcane farms towards mechanization, increasing productivity, improving working conditions and making the sector sustainable

This family farm stopped pre-harvest burning sugarcane leaves and tops (referred to as sugarcane trash) and instead began a thriving business selling the sugarcane trash as mulch. Sugarcane trash is much more valuable than going up in smoke and ash! #StopTheBurn #GoGreenHarvest

IT'S a highly diversified product that's now in hot demand, but it wasn't that long ago farmers watched their cane mulch go up in smoke.

Here is an example of the sugarcane ash called "Black Snow" which residents within the Glades and surrounding communities have to deal with throughout the burning season. Nobody should have to continually breath in this soot and clean this mess off their property for over 6-7 months out of the year! Take a picture and share it on this page the next time you have to clean this mess off your property!
