With Clorofille we want to develop experimental urban farming kits. Because nature can bloom everywhere, also in the city!

The idea is to make playful boxes to discover different uses of plants. Every box has a different theme: growing plants to make colours, soap, drinks or gourmet flowers. In the boxes there are soil, seeds and explanation cards with growing tips and instructions. The explanation cards come in 3 languages: English, Danish and Italian.

The mission is to encourage plant lovers and beginner gardeners to explore their passion for plants. Clorofille wants also to promote a sustainable life style giving you the chance of experimenting with the different uses of plants on your balcony, garden, or rooftop.

Here are the 4 boxes! They are also a perfect Christmas gift since shipping starts in November!

About Us

Giulia

 I am Giulia and I have spent my whole life around plants, being the daughter of two agronomists. Growing up, botany became also my passion and I decided to transform it into my career.

I obtained a PhD in plant biology from Aarhus University. I studied aquatic plants and freshwater ecosystems. To collect samples I canoed along lots of Denmark watercourses, fishing for plants.

Now I started this new adventure, Clorofille, together with Bianca, with the goal of spreading the word: plants are cool!

There are so many different uses for plants and I think it's fun to discover all we can do with them. But I also want to engage in sustainability, starting with the small things: eating organic, biking, farming your balcony. 

Bianca

 I am Bianca and I spent my childhood living in an apartment completely full of plants: my bathroom looked to me like a tropical rain forest and my windowsill like a scorching hot African savanna. My mother is an agronomist and my father has a real green thumb!

I then went on to become a graphic designer and this project allowed me to reconnect with my longstanding interest in ecology. In fact Clorofille brings together my passion for art and craft with my constant attention for environmental sustainability in my own life.

 

Risks and challenges

We are doing the kickstarter campaign to be able to go from prototypes to full production. Manufacturing is going to be the new part of the project, but we are confident we can pull it off, and otherwise we will ask for some extra help to have the boxes shipped on time in November.
