Our Business mission and dedication to sustainability

Through our years of research in cutting edge gardening techniques and ecology. We have been focusing on both land and water. Strategies and actions to protect pollinating insects that support our food production. We have watched the bee population decline, and providing flowers for nectar and pollen is a great way to support these vital and endangered insects.
In the face of increasing pollution, changing climates, dense living, and shrinking ecology, finding new ways to improve the environment is a worthy goal – and our mission. Living lightly for people and companies has become very important: building green, protecting wildlife, and doing their part to give back to the earth is the new order. We believe that innovation and quality equals sustainability, and we strive to provide sustainably

produced products that support the new wave of green living.

My business partner and I have always kept the bigger picture in mind. We feel our responsibility as successful entrepreneurs to give something back. These businesses were to make money to invest in what we really are passionate about and that is saving the ocean and the earth. We feel a successful entrepreneur aims for a balance of profitability and benefits for the world at large. Previously are coral propagation company “AnythingCoral” won entrepreneur of the year at UofO and was written up in several magazines including entrepreneur magazine.

Create Your Lush Livingwall With WallPots

Inspired by the beauty of living walls all over the world, WallPots are an innovative and creative new growing system that allows you to create a lush living wall easily and inexpensively. Produced using only the highest quality materials, WallPots are thinner and more durable than any other fabric pot on the market today. They allow you to create an outdoor sanctuary inside your office or build the perfect hanging garden outside. The sturdy three-pocketed fabric frame is designed with a heavy-duty rubber backing that provides long-term durability, as well as reduced maintenance, and watertight seals.

Having a living wall are not just for looks even though they do leave a strong and visible statement that displays commitment to sustainability and passion for being green. They are also great at removing contaminates in the air and helping improve the overall air quality indoors!
A great benefit to having plants indoors is that they act as natural air filters to toxins like formaldehyde, noxious gases, and other common toxins found in products such as furniture, carpet, paints, and wallpapers. The improvements in the air quality and internal environments can decrease common illnesses, improve productivity, and help reduce bad odors in living, work, or retail spaces.

Plant Smart With YieldPots

Fabric Pots are an exciting new option of planters that is better for the plants and the environment. The most important thing about using a fabric pot, is that it allows your root system to breath. This is called Air Pruning, instead of your roots hitting the conventional wall of any plastic or planting median and start to turn and die; it allows your root system sense the oxygen and create a more fibrous root system.

YieldPots Net Impact

Fabric pots are a biodegradable planter that leaves a much smaller footprint then traditional plastic and planting median. YieldPots are not your average fabric planter with felt material, which is more of a PET material. It’s a thin enough fabric, that is durable enough, that it will get the air to moisture ratio that you are looking for and durable enough to last as long as the other fabric pots. So the cleanability is a lot easier also uses less material and waste. That’s something important to note, especially when growers are using these in high numbers or for living roofs seasonally. Again these are biodegradable pots even if it gets past its five year life span and they start to deteriate, which they could last longer that that depending on usage and depending on being indoors or outdoors. You can obviously take these pots and throw them into the trash and know that this is going to biodegrate in the dump. It’s not going to be a plastic pot that’s going to take a long, long time to break down.
