Packaging Test Run

Posted by The Windowfarms Project (Creator)

Dear Backers,  

Check it out...

That’s Antonio, our Head Engineer, and Pirapha, our Operations Manager, who just ran our first ship test to determine if our packaging plan is going to work.

Packaging has huge impacts on the environment. There's not just the packaging that is used to ship the parts to you, the end recipient, but most products have to be packed at various locations before getting to you. We want to make sure your Windowfarms don't get scratched as they are shipped in container cars by the thousands from the factories to the assembly station. The wire frames are the most important to keep in good shape as they are the modular spine of your entire system.

So far so good. We learned that we need to add some additional material on the ends but it does not look like we are getting warpage.

Big environmental lesson learned: if we were all willing to buy the items that we find in stores that have a little scratch or defect we would create so much less waste!

Did you know? We have created a Kickstarter backer information page that has answers to the most frequently asked questions. Check it out here:
