Rootcup: Ready Plant Cuttings In (Clever) Style
Rootcup is an ingeniously simple little gadget to help prepare plant cuttings for repotting. Michael Good, Rootcup’s creator and a former Apple engineer who did design work on the iPhone 5, sees it as a chance to help green the world one home at a time.
The durable and recyclable little cup suspends a plant cutting in water while it sprouts roots, then makes the transfer into a pot for planting simple. And the manufacturing process offers its own contribution to the community. In a recent Treehugger interview, Good states, ”I like local manufacturing, so I committed to assembling rootcup where I live, San Francisco. Rootcup is assembled at a rehabilitation workshop that hires people who were previously unemployable due to disability.”
