Prolonged plant hydration

LegacyRoot

Prolonged plant hydration

Founding year:2016

Location:The Netherlands

Theme:Sustainable Productions Systems

The mission of LegacyRoot is to stop the advance of deserts, and in doing so carry on the legacy of Ibrahim Al-Alim, the late father of one of our co-founders, Adnan. Ibrahim’s dream was to one day end desertification, and see a world that could support life everywhere. To realize his mission he developed plant-hydrating granules that absorb, preserve, and release water in any type of soil.

The molecular sponges have a long lifespan, are biodegradable, and help plants survive three times longer between watering. Whether it’s to grow food, or just keep houseplants alive, SolidWater makes watering plants an issue of the past. We work with a one-for-one model: with every tonne we sell, another will help life in desert afflicted areas. This is how we keep Ibrahim’s original dream alive through LegacyRoot.
