Zurich based Antonio Scarponi is currently running an Indigogo campaign trying to raise money for ELIOOO, an instruction book on how to build a hydroponic system to grow plants, herbs, or vegetables in your apartment, using IKEA components.

Hydroponics is a clean, sustainable, and efficient way to grow vegetables using water instead of soil. Hydroponics has enormous advantages compared to traditional agricultural methods. It uses only 10% of the water needed with traditional agriculture, allowing for higher production in smaller spaces.
