Portable Shipping Container Greenhouses
Today we’re staying with our recent theme of turning used shipping containers into portable shipping container greenhouses. What’s not to like about that?
PodPonics is one of those really “with-it” companies you hope does well. They create fully self contained, hydroponic, portable shipping container greenhouses. Using the latest, state-of-the-art growing technology, their goal is to grow the freshest, best-tasting produce available anywhere.
Portability is the key here. From their Web Site, their mission is to “grow our produce in a more sustainable, responsible way. By growing at or near the point of consumption, we greatly reduce the need for transport and significantly reduce emissions and oil dependence.”
And that’s really important these days. They source used shipping containers and manufacturing the portable greenhouses at their Georgia facility, then fully outfit them with the latest in hydroponic growing technology. PodPonics is taking what is basically a centuries old philosophy of only eating what is produced locally into the 21st century. It just doesn’t make sense to eat fruits and vegetables grown on the other side of the planet when there is another, better option available. Grow local. Eat local. As a chef and a shipping container enthusiast, this company is suddenly one of my new favorites.
There’s multiple layers of coolness going on here. Not only are they repurposing used shipping containers into greenhouses, but they’re reducing carbon emissions created by eliminating the need to get your arugula to your favorite restaurant without putting it on a plane first.
