During our recent Pitch Day, part of the dynamic Startup Plastic Surgery programme, the FlexiPlanter team had the privilege to present in front of a distinguished jury comprised of leading figures in sustainability, technology, and business development. The event, designed to foster innovation and support startups tackling environmental challenges, offered a platform for interactive feedback, critical insights, and potential collaboration opportunities. This experience was invaluable for us, providing not only validation but also constructive paths forward for FlexiPlanter's mission to greenify urban environments.

GREENING UP THE WORLD
ONE WALL AT A TIME.

new arrivals

Hi there,

 Our story starts in London where are many attractive brick walls, and many plastic bags looking to be repurposed. (I need pictures of brick walls with recycling bags.)

 How did this come together? Can we cover walls with planters made from recycled plastic bags?

 In cities like London, places are precious, but when we look around there are many vertical surfaces, which are not used. Now, given climate change and the cost of living crisis it makes sense to think
out of the box and make use of these valuable vertical spaces.

The more plants we have around us the better for the environment and
human-friendly sustainable cities.
They (absorbs greenhouse gas, reduces temperature, and improves air quality.

We believe
vertical gardening
is for everybody.

So we have created Flexiplanter, a vertical planting system which is:

  • Simple to install – only basic DIY skills required

  • Modular – can be bought in a range of sizes so adaptable to all walls.

  • Affordable - : the 24 pocket version retail price is just £25.

  • Water-use efficient - a manual irrigation system is included in the price except.

- Drill holes spaced to line up with the hanging tabs of the flexiplanter.
- Insert raw plugs
Screw in the hooks to the raw plugs

The planter can be installed following these steps:

-Hang the planter on the hooks using its hanging tabs.

-Use the velcro located at the bottom and the top of each planter to join to the next planter.

Each flexiplanter come all the necessary irrigation parts.

-Attach the irrigation pipes to the planter with
velcro rings.

*2022 George came to the board, and we start to create a KICKSTARTER project.

*2024 Maj start shipping.

Plant up the pockets with either ornamental or edible plants, bulbs, and seeds (pocket size P9 pot), like ordinary pots, then connect
your garden tap and enjoy your vertical garden. You can fill every pocket or leave some empty in order to allow
for the spread of smaller plants.

It is easy to install using basic tools. 

The material of the modules is made of recycled plastic.

-The back of the unit is waterproof, keeping your surface dry,
but your plants moist.

-The pockets are porous, allowing air and water to flow to the roots, ensuring healthy plants.

The pack contains all the elements of the irrigation system,

apart from the (user-friendly and precise) timer,

which can be purchased separately.

-Our test wall runing 2 minutes at the morning then 2 minutes at late aftrenoon.

Simplicity and variability make this planter user-friendly.

Accessible Irrigation is designed to enable living wall maintenance to be swift and efficient, irrigation is integrated but easily accessible for maintenance.

-Two-pocket version.

GreenFlow 

offers a user-friendly vertical planter system called FlexiPlanter.

The 16mm main pipe is fixed with velcro rings in front of the vertical planter, 1 emitter for each column with adjustable sprinklers to make sure the plants get the necessary amount of water. 

Extra water goes to the lower pocket and then leaves the planter to make sure the roots do not stay in the water. 

The benefit of this kind of vertical planter system 

the format and the assemblage of the planter(s) provide an easy set-up and maintenance for the users. 

Our living wall comes with a 3-year manufacturing warranty for peace of mind.

The Flexiplanter is a modular system, so you can create your bespoke green wall.

-Panel sizes: our system is available in 11 sizes.

Why use Flexi planter for living walls?

It's Lightweight This is the light living wall system at only 12kg per 24 pockets unit fully planted and saturated, it makes extremely adaptable to all surface applications, 4 hooks, each hook can hold 60 Kg in a brick wall. It is straightforward and quick to install. This system is designed for quick and efficient installation for large-scale commercial projects or smaller residential projects, with minimum disruption. 

Our vision was to design the most user-friendly vertical planter for everybody from recycled plastic to have no excuse to cover unused vertical surfaces to create more living walls and enjoy the green flow.

Engineered for optimum plant health. The structure of microfibre fabric promotes a strong healthy plant by oxygenating the root system.  

 

Where can you install Flexi planter Living Walls? Anywhere! 

This design-friendly system is suitable for, exterior, curved, angled, suspended, columnar structures, free-standing structures and everything in-between to any scale. With the hooks system, you can cover surfaces where you can attach. Just couple examples of the many possibilities are brick walls with hooks, wood fences with hooks, metal fences with ziplock, and metal containers with

magnetic hooks.

 It allows you to create unique designs that bring your visions to a green reality.

Reusable

and made from

100% recycled plastic

 The material of the modules is made of recycled plastic, supported by smart technology. (The planters’ history can be uploaded to a blockchain from the beginning to create a unique ID for each planter.).

The  Source of waste for base material can be traced back to the location of the collection.

-Scan trust secure QR code created and appears on each product for ID scan.

We would like to give extended product responsibility to our products. 

We would like to show transparently where the plastic is collected for our product where is made and how is delivered to show a more accurate carbon footprint of the product. So this reason we would like to create a modular factory based on 2 shipping containers, to manufacture products for the UK in the UK and for the EU in Spain.

We would like to ask for your help to create a project team to bring this product to life.

For whales with a big THANK YOU.

Important Update: Change in Sewing Factory for FlexiPlanter Production

Dear valued backers,

I hope this update finds you well. First and foremost, I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your continued support and enthusiasm for the FlexiPlanter project.

Unfortunately, I have some news that requires immediate attention. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to switch to a different sewing factory for the production of FlexiPlanter. While this is a setback, please rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to ensure a smooth transition and maintain the high quality you expect from FlexiPlanter.

Why the Change?

We encountered some challenges with our initial factory that could potentially compromise the quality and delivery timeline of FlexiPlanter. After careful consideration, we've decided that it's in the best interest of the project and our backers to move to a new facility.

What Does This Mean for You?

  1. Timeline: We anticipate a slight delay in the production schedule. However, we are working diligently to minimize the impact on the delivery date.

  2. Quality: The new factory has been thoroughly vetted and meets our stringent quality standards. We are confident that the final product will meet, if not exceed, your expectations.

Next Steps

We are in the final stages of negotiating with the new factory and will update you as soon as production resumes. In the meantime, we appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through this change.

Thank you once again for your support. We are committed to being transparent and will keep you updated every step of the way.

Best regards,

Exciting Updates from GreenFlow!

 

Dear Backers and Supporters,

 

We have some thrilling news to share with you all!

 

Firstly, during our sample production phase at the sewing factory, we encountered a minor hiccup. The primary sewing machine we intended to use faced some unexpected issues. However, our resourceful team quickly adapted and tried another machine, albeit a bit weaker. To our delight, this machine worked smoothly and efficiently with our chosen material combination. This quick pivot not only ensured that our production remains on track but also reinforced our belief in the resilience and adaptability of our team. We're pleased to report that everyone is delighted with the outcome, and the materials are now on their way.

 

But that's not all! We are thrilled to announce that GreenFlow has been selected to join the "Plastic Surgery" incubator program. This intensive 4-month program will culminate in a pitch day on the 22nd of March. We will have a golden opportunity to present FlexiPlanter to a wider audience, with a 5-minute presentation followed by a 5-minute Q&A session. To ensure our success, we've been paired with experienced mentors who will guide us in making our pitch day impactful and memorable.

 

We're incredibly excited about these developments and are more motivated than ever to bring FlexiPlanter to each one of you. Your continued support means the world to us, and we can't wait to share more good news in the coming days.

 

Stay tuned, and once again, thank you for being a part of our journey!

 

Warm regards,

 

Győry Krisztián
