Vibrant, energetic, efficient, are the words that best describes our home - Hong Kong. However, behind the success, over 60% of people work over 12 hours and sleep less than 6 hours per day in order to secure their livelihood. Under such a harsh environment, people are more likely to suffer from mental diseases, which can seriously hamper their health, and disrupt family harmony.
Facing such a social problem, we proudly introduce the EasyGreen, technical research and educational team. We aim to bring calm and revelation through introducing a brand new self-designed hydro-planting system with a tailor-made service. Our target will be residential households, universities and the commercial sector.
The hydro-planting system (without the use of conventional soil) is free of soil pollution and is an easy way for participants to experience the joy of getting high yields in a shorter period of time in contrast to the traditional planting method. Such experience could help alleviate stress and maintaining good mental health. As a value-added feature, EasyGreen also encourages their customers to grow vegetables, such as lettuce and tomatoes, in order to gain satisfaction from harvesting.
Several pilot studies were conducted at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and local schools that demonstrated positive results. Feedback from participants including students and staff were very encouraging, indicating that the hydro-plant service has a welcome effect not only for personal relaxation, but also for mental and psychology health. We sincerely believe that we can jointly make Hong Kong become a better place.
