About

Bonsai is the most effective personal portable air purifier available period.  

Bonsai will help you with allergies and asthma; it will reduce your chances of getting sick.

The technology used in your Bonsai sterilizes the air and all the adjacent surfaces. This is the exact same new technology that is now being installed in hospitals. He have figured out how to scale it down to create a market entry that actually works. (see video below, "reaction looks like this")

Bonsai energizes the air and restores ion levels which is significant in the determination of "healthy air."  (see chart below, "why the air feels fresh")

Made with the highest quality materials available. Bonsai is constructed for durability and engineered to last for many years of use without any cost in maintenance.  (see specs below)

Bonsai is the world's first truly effective portable personal air purifier.

We all take the air we breathe for granted. It's a subconscious act that just happens. But air is the most important factor to sustaining life. The air you breathe affects every aspect of your physical and mental well being. 

Competitive products are usually good at solving 1 or 2 air quality issues, but none are effective at resolving all the indoor air quality concerns that affect you in your home, workplace and travel.  There is NOTHING that exists on the market today that can do what Bonsai will do.

We have developed a personal air purifier that not only out performs the competing products in cleaning your personal air space, but it has been designed and developed with features unique only to MyTree Bonsai. Bonsai is the culmination of raw data and product analysis to design, build and produce these high tech personal air purifiers.  

The World Health Organization and the Environmental Protection Agency claim the indoor air is 2 to 10 times more polluted than outdoors.

MyTree Bonsai, your first truly portable personal air purifier that really works!  You can use it pretty much anywhere you like...

These are just a few examples of where Bonsai can be used. 

Breathe well, so that you may live life well.

MyTree was borne out of likeminded people. People sharing a vision. With an end game that is unfortunately all too unique in most business models. All persons involved in this venture have come from different walks of life, each bringing a wealth of knowledge and different types of expertise. People of different countries, cultures and denominations. But we all share a common vision. A dream. To reduce suffering amongst our fellow man, woman and child. 

We will make indoor air safe again. Right now we are a small group with a small voice. We are at a critical pivotal point in where we are going. We have many groups interested in becoming involved with this this project, but we realize that these people will only care about the bottom line. While we intend to be fiscally responsible, we also intend to be socially, morally and humanely responsible. With your help we can make this happen.

 Sincere Thanks

Risks and challenges

We have invested a great deal of time developing our brand MyTree. Bonsai is the first model in the MyTree line of advanced air purification products. We have another MyTree project called RedWood that is still in the early stages of its prototype development, which we hope to launch on Kick Starter in the near future.

For production we have already worked out the detail and we are set to create our molds. We have taken many flights back and forth meeting with our suppliers and manufacturer to complete the steps needed to ensure that we can produce Bonsai in a timely manner, with the best in quality control standards. Yet, due to Bonsai being our first product being put into production, we have made room in our delivery timeline for hurdles and problem solving throughout the production period. With this in mind, we have created a fair production timeline, but we hope to surprise our backers with an early delivery date.

We have made sure to use the best components available for the hardware in Bonsai, which already have international certifications for safety and electricity. This strategy will ensure that the Bonsai itself will approve every international certification it applies for, including UL, CE, and CSA.
