I really enjoy seeing projects that bring nature closer to us at some level. Kids these days are all about smartphones, gaming and indoor fun, and there is simply no time spent outside.
Thinking about that, Bantum, an American product consulting firm, has asked Italian designer Andrea Mangone to come up with a way to reconnect people with nature. Meet Urbanoasis:
By 2050, 6 billion people worldwide will be living in urbanised areas. Urbanoasis wants to reconnect people with nature in the urban environment by making growing vegetables on your balcony a fun, educative and engaging experience.
The package includes a pot, dried soil+fertiliser, gardening tools, seeds and a watering can. The pot, with its modern and minimal look, was designed to fit perfectly both on a balcony or indoor. Urbanoasis is fun and it promotes a positive message. The product is an example of eco-sustainability using materials such as bamboo and rice hull fibres composite, cork agglomerate, recycled cardboard and natural wood.
