Together we take care of green
Did you know that 17% of the people in Holland has high blood pressure, 16% has regular headaches and heart diseases are the number one cause of death?

This all is caused by stress! Especially caused in offices. When you’re in nature for only five minutes, your stress level will be reduced to half. Based on these facts, the WE-GREEN is developed. It will make the working environment greener and let taking care of plants be part of your daily tasks. Your plant has its own name and personality, whereby it will be your best buddy in no time.

Technology and nature are combined in this plant pot. When the plant needs anything, like water or more lighting, the pot will light up. Activate the LCD by touching the pot and it will tell you exactly what it needs. This way you can make sure you will have a happy and healthy plant. Connect your WE-GREEN with the app and see how you’ve done overtime, learn more about your plant or see how your colleagues are doing. Stimulate each other to make the office greener. The WE-GREEN doesn’t only cause a healthier working environment, thus a better health, it also raises a better work atmosphere.

There are four ways to contribute:
