Bottle Farm – Grow fresh food on your window

Bottle Farm is launching a kit that transforms a plastic bottle into a beautiful indoor farm. In the UK alone, 15 million plastic bottles are thrown away every day. Users can now extend the life of any bottle and enjoy growing delicious fresh produce and houseplants. With recent circumstances forcing people to spend much more time at home, there’s never been a better time to start growing indoors.

The project is currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter, where it has reached 100% of its funding target in just 24 hours.

Store-bought produce has a serious environmental impact, as it’s often transported by air and wrapped in single-use plastic. Growing fresh food in Bottle Farm avoids these problems. The kit is made from over 95% recycled materials, and the company has pledged to offset 100% of its carbon footprint through its partnership with Carbonfund.org.

Supermarket vegetables lose up to half of their nutrient content by the time they reach the shelves. Produce grown in Bottle Farm, picked just before cooking, is healthy and packed with flavour.

Co-founder Charlie Francis says: "There are lots of good reasons to grow your own fresh food. The problem is that most people don’t have the time or space to do it. So we have designed Bottle Farm to either hang on a window or sit on a flat surface. Now anyone can grow fresh produce at home with minimal effort. And at the same time extend the life of a plastic bottle."

Bottle Farm is a self-watering system that uses hydroponic technology, which means the plants grow in water, rather than soil. Natural sunlight gives the plants energy to grow, so the kit doesn’t require a plug socket and electricity like other systems.

The kit is assembled with an empty plastic bottle. Simply cut a slot using the template and insert the Grow Pods, made from recycled coconut husk, and plant the provided seeds. Then add tap water and Plant Fuel, a special nutrient powder included in the kit. Now enjoy watching the seeds germinate and roots emerge, as the fresh vegetables, delicious herbs, and beautiful houseplants grow in your window.

Bottle Farm is now available on Kickstarter: ks.bottle-farm.com

Bottle Farm. Good for you. Good for the Planet.
