I am always excited by new ideas that challenge the current way we’re living. Cella by Ecoid is exactly just that: a new creative product designed to bring urban people closer to nature.
Cella is specially constructed of flexible, lightweight plastic to house mosses and small plants. It creates a microclimate that allows them to thrive both indoors and outdoors. Cella is uniquely adaptable in that it can be attached to walls and roofs, or simply stand alone. This portable, self-contained habitat comes in different sizes and can be linked with other units – be creative with your designs!
I implore you to support their Kickstarter project to make this product affordable for families all over the world.
