Groasis award-winning innovation will help to improve the world through making degraded land fertile again. This way it will help to fight erosion, save water, produce more food, create jobs and wealth. This are the objectives of Groasis and Accreviri.
The development of Groasis
Groasis has developed several products over the last couple of years. Their first product was a “plastic intelligent bucket”, the Waterboxx® plant cocoon, which allows you to plant a tree or vegetables in a sustainable, responsible and water saving way. This year Groasis is going to add the Growboxx® plant cocoon, a biodegradable box made from recycled paper pulp, to their product portfolio. The Growboxx® plant cocoon works in the same way as the Waterboxx® plant cocoon, but the box is made from paper pulp and allows planting of a tree in combination with 4 vegetables. When planting a tree with 4 vegetables the money required for buying the box, sapling and vegetable seeds can be earned from the vegetable harvest in the first year. Aside of the generated income. The family who uses the box will also have food to eat. All this can be reached with over 90% higher water efficiency.
A greener world for everyone
To make sure that the Growboxx® plant cocoon is affordable for the people who need them the most, Groasis has the dream to produce on a global local scale. This ensures that their will be close to the buyer’s market and they can give people the support that they need. At the moment, Groasis is already producing in South-America, but there are many more places on this world where the local population need the products!
