Crowdsourcing Mornings: Alphapot | Made From Food Waste To Grow Easily In Nature


This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

We love nature, but realized that when trying to bring nature into our modern homes, they were grown in unnatural environments, with pots made from plastic and other synthetic materials. We wanted a pot for our plants that allowed them to Grow Easily in Nature, so Alphapot was born!  Made from food waste to grow nature, Alphapot is 100% biodegradable, 100% Food Waste Fiber+ Vege Starch + Emulsion, 0% plastic(PP,PET…) 0% bio-plastic(PLA), helping to reduce and repurpose food waste in a more beautiful way.  Alphapot is designed with a round base to hold a plant from a standard 4 inch pot, and the square opening feature allows for pots to be interconnected. The engravings around the base area of the pot enables Alphapot to decompose back into nature more efficiently.

Alphapot is designed to hold water in a corner reservoir of the pot and together with a wick system that extends into the reservoir, your plant will draw just the right amount of water needed to feed itself.  The name Alphapot is taken from the words “alpha – the first” and “alphabet – the basic elements in a system which combine to form complex entities.”  Each Alphapot is a basic element, designed with modularity, and can be combined together in endless ways to build an oasis for any kind of space. The more the merrier to create your personal garden.

As of September 13th, this project has raised $15,000 of their $10,000 goal. This project has 9 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $30, you will get two Alphapots.  For a pledge of $45, you will get four Alphapots.  To learn more and to pledge money, go to:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1576257573/alphapot-made-from-food-waste-to-grow-easily-in-na?ref=home_new_and_noteworthy
