SNAP Hydroponics is something that has been developed in the Philippines for sustainable living and livelihood. What makes it a little unique compared to most hydroponics setups is that it doesn’t need any electricity which is a huge difference in money cost for production. Obviously the Philippines climate is a country receiving 12 hours of sunshine as well as constant heat which helps. But the SNAP solution which is mixed with water is a cheap solution for plant production that is initially designed for leafy plants. Maybe this is the first step towards developing different solutions for different types of plant to get maximum growth while still being organic. But for me living out in the Philippines with these lightweight boxes how many would you fit on a shipping container home roof? The boxes themselves come from discarded fruit boxes normally carrying grapes which means your recycling a product that is normally scrapped. How to make a SNAP hydroponics setup from a fruit box can be found here.
Container Home Design by Lawrence Group creating Harbinger SG Blocks shipping container home a beautiful small practical designed home which also gets taken to shows which shows its ability to be modular when needed but a beautiful home or office when not. The roof deck area gives a feeling of space as well as opening up to having a outdoor living space, depending on location and climate if your like me in the Philippines that would no doubt become the living room as rainfall for most of the year pretty much is none existant allowing for a roof decked large outside space that you can enjoy the views while going about your daily business.
