Urbz ❤️ Earth
We love Earth and designed Urbz® to showcase its natural beauty in an environmentally friendly and inspiring way.
Whether you live in an urban area or the countryside, Urbz® let's you bring Nature inside your home. Today, 55% of the world's population lives in a city. This number is projected to be as high as 68% by 2050. With more people moving to concrete jungles, Urbz® allows you to keep your roots and stay connected to Nature.
The original design of Urbz® is transparent so that one sees the soil through the planter. This visual cue reminds us that Earth's soil is nurturing to life. It's also a great way for kids to learn about plants and grow their own food.
The Urbz® planter is reusable and 100% recyclable at the end of its life. It is made of high quality ABS plastic that's durable and light weight relative to ceramic planters and pottery which are heavy by comparison. The light weight construction of Urbz® makes it both fuel and cost efficient to ship anywhere in the world.
The high sintering temperature required to fire ceramic pots is incredibly energy intensive. In contrast, the energy required to produce Urbz® is far, far less. For example, earthenware pottery is fired at 1200°C whereas ABS is heated to 215°C for injection molding.
Urbz® is an environmentally friendly option compared to ceramics. The lower energy requirements in addition to the recyclability advantages make the Urbz® planter an Earth-friendly choice for growing herbs, succulents and houseplants in your habitat.
