About

 

 

  

 

The heart of the EcoQube C+ is the aquaponics filter, which we've integrated into the tank to create an all-in-one system that uses plants like Basil or Green Onions to keep your aquarium clean. You can customize your EcoQube and grow up to 5 different plants!

 

 

 

Our innovative, 3-stage filtration system ensures that you will never have to change your water filter again - saving you both time and money.

 

Create your own unique arrangement of plants, flowers, herbs, and microgreens. The EcoQube C+ comes with up to 5 slots - allowing to create a unique, beautiful display inside your home.

 

 

Just place your microgreen pads in the EcoQube C+ and watch them sprout in less than 10 days.

 

At 3 gallons, there's a lot more room for you to include all your fishy friends.

  

 

 

 

 

 

Be able to control your LED settings on your EcoQube C+ from across the room!

 

We've got your back. Our Grow Team is committed to helping you with your C+ garden.

 

When it comes down to it, all that matters is quality. That's why we take even the smallest details seriously - carefully designing each element to make sure your EcoQube C+ experience is as good as it can be.

 

 

The waterfall brings tranquil and soothing sounds to your room - leaving you feeling peaceful in your space.

  

 

 

 

 

 

We want to experience nature and have a fresh, healthy environment, but this is difficult with our current workspaces, living environments, and societal norms.

Enrich your life and improve your health by bringing nature into your home or office with the EcoQube C+.

Our mission is to improve people’s lives by designing the most beautiful, low-maintenance desktop ecosystems ever. Join our movement to educate everyone about hydroponics and aquaponics, promote sustainability, and transform our living spaces.

Let’s bring nature back into our lives and blur the lines between the outdoors and indoors.

 

 

 

Our names are Andrew and Kevin.

We’ve been working together for years and have a shared passion for creating beautiful technology that works with nature, seamlessly in any home.

Our mission is to use technology to help everyone, everywhere bring more nature indoors -- without all the maintenance.

Plants have been shown to improve productivity and boost mood in your living spaces -- at home, in the office, wherever! When you bring nature inside you’re improving your indoor environment, removing toxins and purifying the air around you.

As we got older, we started to become more aware of the harsher realities of our world, realizing that there are many people globally who face food and water shortages every day but that for most of us, such issues are so foreign.

We couldn't ignore the facts, so we decided to use our knowledge of aquariums to find a feasible solution.

We believe aquaponics is a clear solution to many of the food and water shortages humanity faces today. While this food production method was used thousands of years ago in early Aztec and Chinese civilizations, it has since fallen into disuse and become largely forgotten.

We hope to educate as many people as possible about the practical solution and beauty of aquaponics and to ultimately help initiate the process of bringing aquaponics to the forefront of today's agriculture.

We were able to reach many with the original EcoQube & EcoQube C, and now, we hope to reach even more with the EcoQube C+! Please join our mission and share the EcoQube C+ with as many people you know!

 

 

 

 

 

                

Risks and challenges

We launched our first campaign at the end of 2013 and spent the entire year of 2014 learning how to manufacture the very first EcoQube aquarium and living next to the factory halfway across the world. We followed up with a full 12-month warranty to ensure our backers succeeded in bringing nature indoors with the EcoQube.

In 2015, we leveraged what we learned in manufacturing and we set out to deliver the most incredible EcoQube Aquarium at the best prices. The volume exceeded our expectations by 10x and in order to meet demands, we had to move our operations to the other side of the world. Even then, we still delivered over 50% of our backer's orders on time. We ran into problems with fulfillment centers and found our current fulfillment partner who has been nothing short of amazing!

We've spent most of the last 3 years working with our partners to mitigate as many risks as possible, yet we know there will still be hurdles along the way. We will always be transparent with our community about challenges, including these:

Ship Date: We've set extremely achievable dates with buffer but there still are many things out of our control like customs, port strikes, quality control and other unforeseen issues. Either way, our guarantee is you will receive an extremely high quality product and we will be in constant communication through updates.

Product Changes: As we refine the EcoQube C+ based on additional community feedback and more product testing, slight changes may be made. We'll only make changes that enhance the product experience.

Supplier Coordination: We work with a variety of suppliers to source the best materials and ensure that the product is developed correctly. Each supplier has its own challenges, which may affect its partners, including us.

Maintenance: As hard as we've worked to make this AS LOW MAINTENANCE AS POSSIBLE, it is still a living plant. As with all plants, there are many variables that can affect plant growth. We've done everything we could to allow you to easily make adjustments depending on your plant variety in order for the plant to thrive.
