Wonderful idea! This seems like a very well thought out and timely executed solution to a major problem in our current society! The incorporation of experimentation, effective marketing, and usage of natural resources are all wonderful aspects which help solidify this project’s viability in helping solve water scarcity. I am wondering though, with the sponges, nutrients, and the pod, what is the approximate lifetime of this product? Are the pods easily replaceable or does the reliance on simple osmosis make these pods suitable for growth for long periods of time? The use of the engineering design process is incredible and I hope that further outreach and usage of the water pods can help decrease water usage and make our planet a greener place. Thanks for sharing, and I look forward to successful development of Aqua Pod!
Thank you for the feedback, we truly value your input! We would like to update you on the status of our current event. Starting yesterday (6/1), Creativity In Bloom has moved to its online voting stage that showcases a plethora of creative green project submissions. We noticed a significant increase in new users as well as unique page views as this stage started, this achieves our goal of further engaging the community through online voting. View those amazing entries and stories, and vote at www.chbloom.org.
We would also like to add that we have recently partnered with Orange County Recycling (local recycling agency) that provides most updated recycling resources for our local community to make it easy for local residents to “Recycle Right,”. With a collaborative outreach, we also provide a webpage about how to “Recycle Right.” While physical Go Green events are still pending due to the reopen situation, our virtual events have proven to be an effective channel to reach out to the broader community, with over 7,500 page views in less than a month. In the future, we look forward to enhancing the community engagement with a combination of both virtual and physical events to carry out our environmental mission!
