When Eric reached out to me about his EcoQube Kickstarter campaign, I was pretty intrigued. A couple years ago when Mark wanted a dog, and I said no, we compromised on fish. Over the years he has read up a lot on how to raise fish, what they eat, their habits, etc. Although at times I have not been the most supportive of his fish hobby, I have come to enjoy the fish, and the joy they bring to every kid that walks into our home.
- Over 70% of global freshwater is used for agriculture (farming of vegetables and fruits) and aquaculture (farming of marine animals like fish)
- Billions of gallons of water for agriculture and aquaculture is flushed into our environment every day, carrying excess fertilizer, pesticides, waste with it.
- Aquaponics (the concept the EcoQube was designed around) is a closed recirculating system that uses over 90% less water than traditional agriculture and does not produce waste products. Grows food 30-50% faster without pesticides. Marine life farmed in this environment are much healthier due to the clean, filtered environment provided by natural plant filtration. Completely organic
