38% of global land surface is used for agriculture. Changes in land use lead to the destruction of habitat and the alteration of weather elements. 🐝🌦️ It's a huge driver of climate change which in turn severely affects agricultural productivity & food security. 🚜 Our solution? 🌱💪 ➡️ Growing Greens in the Plantcube requires 90% less land area compared to conventional agricultural practices.

We’ll roughly be 10 billion people on Earth by 2050, so more food has to be produced. Agricultural production needs to increase by at least 60% until 2050. 🥙📈 At the same time, arable land is expected to level off around 1.7 billion hectares. This means that, compared to the past, no additional yields can be achieved through land-use conversion. 🌳🚜 In the Plantcube, 9.2x more yield can be produced per square meter compared to conventional agriculture. 🌱💪 Source: fao.org
8 million tons of plastic end up in our oceans – every year. Animals get entangled or starve to death. Plus: Microplastics are nowadays also found in our drinking water systems and in the air we breathe. No wonder: Up to 80% of fruits and vegetables in supermarkets are packed in plastic. ❌ Our solution? 🌱💪 Our packaging is entirely free of plastic and the Seedbars can easily be disposed into organic waste.

Did you know that worldwide every year more than 4 million tons of pesticides are used in conventional agriculture?* This includes different insecticides, herbicides, fungicides and rodenticides. Pesticides are a major driver of the rapid population decline of many species and therefore pose a significant threat to biodiversity. Our solution? 🌱💪 ➡️ Growing Greens in the Plantcube does not require pesticides at all! *Source: FAOSTAT
