Agriculture has reached its breaking point.
HydroGrow was born from the idea that agriculture shouldn't be the one thing destroying the environment. But is is. Agriculture is the 2nd most polluting industry in the world and the more water consuming.
Centuries of aggressive agricultural practices are responsible for the release of more than 6.457 Million Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide equivalent in the atmosphere every year. In addition to that, we produce 300 millions tons of plastic every year, and 91% of it is not being recycled.
In brief, farming is becoming harder, more expensive and more polluting.
But we have a solution! 😍
