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.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines/
Life Watch is an adventure company that makes simple watches from recycled rubber. The average person receives 64 phone notifications each day, so we decided none should come from your watch. Our watches are made to accompany you on every day’s adventure, not distract you from it. We worked with three of Northwestern University’s best engineers to design our watch and spent months vetting potential manufacturers to produce it. The manufacturer we chose has over a decade of watchmaking experience and met our high standards in both quality and sustainability.
Life Watch is committed to production practices that don’t harm our planet. With that in mind, every single watch band will be made using recycled rubber, and my cofounder and I are promising to spend a week doing service projects that help clean up our Earth when our campaign ends. We’ll be making it public in case anyone wants to join. Beyond this, Life Watch will work towards leaving a net positive carbon footprint with our production. With your backing, we will secure our first manufacturing order and continue building Life Watch with longevity in mind. You will get your Life Watch by October of this year.
As of July 16th, this project has raised $14,600 of their $15,000 goal. This project has 1 day left to raise the $15,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $67, you will get one Life Watch. For a pledge of $134, you will get two Life Watches. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wearlifewatch/life-watch-the-digital-watch-modernized?
