Josh Smith at the Forefront of a Greenhouse Revolution

New plans and innovations are continuing to be developed to combat climate change and water depletion. One such plan is based upon the notion of spiders and butterflies. These existing systems can distribute and store water in quite amazing ways. A New York team has now made a invention to mimic this. They hope to develop maintainable water, and the production of food, all through a self-sustainable system.

NexLoop was awarded the Ray C. Anderson Foundation Ray of Hope Prize for 2017. Their product, AquaWeb, was based upon a spiders web and a honey bees nest. The design will be used to help food producers store, filter, and collect the atmospheres moisture. This will be particularly useful for container farms, vertical farms, and greenhouses.

These designs are principally important for greenhouses. Without this technology, they would not be able to sustain themselves in urban and/or small areas. Josh Smith, Reno Nevada, has developed such greenhouses. He calls them Modular Greenhouses and they are completely sustainable.

Josh Smith, based in Reno, Nevada, is the CEO and Founder of Modular Greenhouses. With his fifteen years of start-up expertise, Smith’s products will soon be on the market. Children are one of his passions. He believes that they should not be fed junk food, this causes an array of future health conditions. Greenhouses are the new future of gardening in small spaces.

With these greenhouses, people will be able to grow their own food. They can do this from the comfort of their own home using a mobile application. Modular Greenhouses can withstand a category 4 hurricane or eighty pounds of snowfall. They are highly sturdy, and easily added onto for a bigger house using a hinge technology. Josh Smith, Reno Nevada, has come up with a great product that will soon be seen in many backyards, patios, and indoor homes.

Waiakea Water: Championing for Healthy, Sustainable and Ethical Drinking Water

Waiakea Water is dedicated to sustainable production, bottling, and shipping of their water. The company’s operations mirror the Hawaiian symbiotic relationship with their natural environment. Therefore, the company is dedicated to environmental conservation and protection. The bottles the company uses are made of recycled polyethylene terephtalate (RPET). Unlike the virgin bottles, RPET are post-consumer recycled and use less energy to manufacture and reduce carbon emission. They are also Bisphenol A (BPA) free.

Waiakea Water further ensures environmental protection by sourcing their water from the Kea’au Aquifer located at the base of Mauna Loa volcano. The aquifer collects water from snowmelt and rainwater brought about by the rich biodiversity in the area. To cut further on carbon emission, the company uses a low carbon emission shipping option. The company’s commitment towards the preservation of Hawaii’s biodiversity saw it awarded the CarbonNeutral® certification in 2012 by The CarbonNeutral Company. Waiakea Water has since actively engaged in reforestation initiatives to further its carbon emission and attain the CarbonNeutral Protocol status marked by net zero carbon emission. The company also uses renewable energy including geothermal for a third of its energy needs.

Company Profile: Waiakea Water

Since its founding in 2011, Waiakea Water has developed a reputation of selling one of the most in-demand drinking water brands. Its unique water purification process that relies on the natural purification power of volcanic rocks found in Hawaii sets it apart from the rest of competitors. This has propelled the company to greater operational heights. The company’s products and brand are not only recognizable nationally; Waiakea Water is now a global brand.
