Groasis BV is a Dutch company that sells the Waterboxx. Groasis wants to cause the reforestation of the 2 billion hectares wasteland, before 2050, with the waterboxx.

More info about the Groasis Waterboxx at Spain has 10 million hectares of unproductive land. The land turns into desert like areas. With the Groasis Waterboxx we can plant productive trees. Without the use of irrigation. We can also start reforestation. Without using precious water. With the Groasis Waterboxx we use over 99% less water than with irrigation. The planted trees have – despite extreme weather circumstances – over 90% chance to survive. This Life+ ‘The Green Deserts’ project is subsidized by the European Union.
