Last year I shared a fantastic TedX Talk by Fernando Ortiz of VerdeVertical (VerticalGreen). Fernando starts his talk by googling "Paradise" to show us what comes up: pristine nature scenes. It's mindboggling to think that we had paradise and then developed it away.This fantastic company is dedicated to bringing nature back into our lives and making us more conscious of how vital nature is to our survival. Unfortunately this project didn't meet the Kidckstarter goal, but you can the visionaries here: www.verdevertical.com.mx/eng/index.html!
PLUG & PLANT: The Smart Vertical Garden - Allows anyone to grow plants anywhere; it’s the easiest way to integrate nature into your everyday life. Allows Users To Plug In 12+ Plants, Water Once A Month, and Watch It Grow.
We created Plug & Plant for those who love nature but don’t have the means to enjoy it. It’s a practical and beautiful way to get in touch with nature.” Fernando Ortiz, CEO
Unfortuantely this Kickstarter project was cancelled as it didn't meet the fundraising goal. You can contact the creators here!
