With so many projects being sought to be funded through crowdsourcing platforms like Kickstarter, it could be anybody’s guess which ones will succeed. Among the possibilities are the more practical ones that can be used by the public. This leads to a scenario where people actually buy Kickstarter projects. Here are some environment-friendly Kickstarter projects more likely to succeed than the others.
OpenFarm: Learn to Grow Anything
This project is so simple that it is most likely to succeed because of its usefulness. Targeting farmers and gardeners all over the world, it seeks to offer what has not been offered so far – specific relevant information. Most information that can be found online are general which may not be useful to particular questions and problems arising from specific situations and areas. Some advice can be specific, too specific perhaps to be of any use to any other person intent of making good in his farming or gardening efforts.
OpenFarm is designed to be a free and open database for farming and gardening knowledge. Anyone is allowed to contribute content. Contents will be structured in a way that would make it easy for readers to find the information they want. The Prerequisites and Timeline sections will tell readers the conditions required to follow the guide successfully.
LED Light has already proven its energy efficiency prowess. This project just takes it a notch higher in terms of creativeness and fun. Playbulb Candle is a mobile app controlled device that allows lighting control and color changing. It is the perfect night light for kids since it’s flameless and will not pose any risk.
Again, it is likely to succeed because of its sheer simplicity plus the added fun factor. There will always be use for energy-efficient lighting. Playbulb Candle just made having them more fun.
Products that are multi-functional are good for the environment. The less products needed to accomplish tasks, the better. This survival belt does not only look good but is actually useful for a lot of things. This project seeks to find funding for their belts with 3 new buckle types. One comes with a fires starter. Another comes with multi-tool in addition to the firestarter and still another comes with a GPS in addition to the multi-tool and fires starter.
Two things come to mind when determining probable success of a product: creativity and usefulness, both best achieved while taking into environment issues into consideration.
