Kickstarter has helped so many businesses and individuals reach out to potential investors. Whether they be musicians looking to put out a CD, documentarians trying to make a movie, or businesses introducing a new product, Kickstarter provides a platform for support. What's caught our eye are the green-friendly projects that could prosper with the help of this website. If it weren't for Kickstarter, I wouldn't have known about Sprout, a pencil containing seeds that can be planted when the pencil gets too small. Now Sprout has enough backers to create this innovative idea, and I may be one of the first recipients! Here are some other great green ideas you might want to get in on:
The Farmery: Food would be grown on-site at this urban farm and market proposed by Ben Greene of Raleigh, NC. Not only would they sell products grown right there in a facility made of old shipping containers; they would sell produce from local farmers. The Farmery's goal is to be able to offer locally grown products on a constant basis, and to let shoppers in on the sights, sounds, and even scents of the growing experience as they shop.
