TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 18, 2007) - reWORKS Environmental Corp. (TSX VENTURE:REW), an emerging leader in the production and marketing of premium organic soil enrichment products today announces positive findings from an investigation into the applications and benefits of using its earthworm castings in the Greenhouse Floriculture Industry and record production of worm castings at the Toronto plant. Earthworm castings are produced commercially by reWORKS' wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Forterra Inc.

Eco Habitat Agri Services of Grimsby, Ontario, concluded on their study that consistently better performance was achieved in a commercial pot chrysanthemum greenhouse by growing plants in a potting medium that contained 20% earthworm castings. Also, root and shoot weight of mum cuttings rooted in 10 to 20 percent earthworm castings was significantly higher than in the grower's standard media. In addition the findings on effects using Forterra earthworm castings on water retention and possible repercussions on watering regimes in greenhouse floriculture crops.

"Stock mums grown in potting mixes that contained earthworm castings used significantly less water per plant per week than mums grown in standard potting mix alone. The impact is a savings of over 2000 liters of water per week in a typical greenhouse producing 5000 plants." reports Sarah Jandricic, Director of Research at Eco Habitat.

"These results continue to support our research and development efforts that demonstrate how Forterra earthworm castings are an effective, organic soil care solution for many horticultural applications", said Gary Gould, President of reWORKS. "We have an ongoing program of testing by accredited research organizations in vegetable production, nursery crop, turf management, floriculture and viticulture."

Production levels have hit a record output at the Toronto facility over the last month leading reWORKS to have an inventory of over 30 Tons heading into 2008. Higher production was achieved through improved reliability, resulting in higher utilization of expansion capacity.

"Second plant to open early Q4 2008 with projections to rapidly expand in Canada and the USA. A strategic sales and marketing plan is set for 2008 to fill the demand for our new high quality Organic Fertilizer." said Don Green, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of reWORKS.
