About this project
The iBeanInspired Story
"It is absolutely essential to have faith, inspiration and belief, a belief that the Earth we share will continue improving and that we can look forward to an even brighter tomorrow." - Jonathon Hall, CEO of iBeanInspired
Jonathon Hall, founder of iBeanInspired, had always wanted to help others find their inspiration in an eco-conscious way. Then one day, he uniquely found magic in inscribing inspirational messages onto beans, what is also known as the Jack Bean, to help others focus on their intentions and to watch their dreams and inspirations grow.
With the goals of helping others find their inspiration, Jonathon revolves his production processes and services in an eco-friendly way. Down to the core, our beans, soil, pots, and packaging are mainly made from organic recycled wastes. In addition, iBeanInspired has been committed to donate up to 5% of our proceeds to worthy causes. We have also organized and participated in eco-conscious volunteering activities in the local community of Salt Lake City.
With the intentions of being an earth friendly company, we hope others can become so to.
iBeanInspired is an inspiration company, dedicated to empowering people to focus on their desires and make their dreams come true. By “Being the Change We Wish to See in the World,” we hope iBeanInspired can help find inspiration in others and spread inspiration throughout the world in an eco-conscious way.
What is the iBean?
The iBean is a large bean inscribed with an inspirational intention. You plant the iBeans and watch your dreams grow right before your eyes! By watching the iBean grow day by day, it will not only bring a positive energy into your home, but also inspire you to stay focus on your dreams and desires.
The plant takes 6-10 days to sprout. Because the pod is the nutrient of the plant and the plant uses this energy to grow, the pod willl maintain up to 1 month before it dries up and becomes a small keepsake memento of your dream. The plant will continue to grow and with proper care (water, warmth, soil, and sunlight), the iBean can live up to 1 year. By maintaining your plant, it will help remind you to think positive and focus on your desires.
The iBean makes the perfect gift for special occasions. Children, elders, mothers and fathers all enjoy a little friendly plant for the home, office, or even garden. The iBean takes up little space, yet sends a powerful message as it grows.
How the iBean Works
- Pick your pot (iBean Planter)
- Pick your bean (iBean Packet)
- Grow your dream.
We currently have 6 different planter colors and 34 different intention messages.
Each iBean Packet contains two of the same iBean intention. Each iBean Planter comes with soil (vermiculite), a saucer, and a fortune iBean. When packaged as a gift, we call this the iBean Intention Kit (the iBean Intention Kit includes both the iBean Packet and Planter).
Each iBean is inscribed with an intention. One side is in English and the other is in Chinese representing the East and Western Hemisphere.

"I think it's innovative. I think it's unique, I think everybody of every age will love it. I'm hooked!" --- Kelly Chapman From Channel 2 KUTV Fresh Living.
And from our past customers:
"My name is Jessica Osaka and I met you on Saturday at the "Go Green" fair, the one who works in marketing for Wyndham Resorts. I just wanted to say that I fell in love with your idea and my salute to you and following your passion! It is so inspiring that you were willing to step out of your comfort zone (architecture) and follow a passion. You've inspired me to act on an idea that I have sat on for the last year...this idea pops into my head daily at random times. Thank you for being one of "those times"! I can honestly say- "I bean inspired!"---Jessica Osaka
"I bought a "Healthy Baby" for my son and his wife that have been trying to have a baby for quite some time. When I got home my son informed me that I was going to be a grandmother. Wow, it came true so quick without even planting it. I went back and bought 6 more iGrow kits the next week. Thanks iBeanInspired!"---Julie Buesin
