About the Organization
Minus Degre was founded in 2020 by two brothers with a collective mission of using eco-friendly products by manifesting the use of 100% recycled plastic. We collected plastic and created new items from recycling it through the pandemic. We intend to raise awareness about responsible consumption by deploying eco-friendly materials in our products and using them majorly in the mainstream/top-of-the-line items. Of all the plastic produced till now, 9% has been lost (by incineration or decomposed completely) but the remaining 91% is where our opportunity lies. Our project is to tackle all the plastic waste around us for a better future for all.
Our mission is to reduce the genesis of virgin plastic by replacing it with reused and recycled plastic of superior quality wherever permissible. We act as an incubation funnel where the raw plastic transforms into sustainable material, eco-designed without compromising the quality of the green products. So, when you use such sustainable and eco-friendly products made from recyclable plastic, it ensures positive changes around us.
Minus Degre is a mission-driven zero-waste organization determined to contribute to solving the problem of the 9.46 million tons of plastic waste generated annually in India. We are youth-oriented and focused on improving the living conditions of future generations. Additionally, we lead workshops in schools to raise awareness from an early age, creating an impact for years to come.
About the Product
With our Eco-pots, you buy more than sustainability and the badge of honor for being a responsible person. You also get the benefits of having greenery in your house. A natural air purifier that sits in your home, shielding against pollutants and refreshing the air you breathe. Having nature flourish in your home brings about a certain positivity; there are various plants for various use. However, some plants are just to keep the blues out and the greens in. The Eco-pots bring about a sense of joy, a boost to the mood, and an unburdened shoulder for contributing to the fight against pollution and environmental degradation. All great things begin with small steps, this might be your small step towards contributing to a bigger change. Our Eco-Pots are of the dimensions 4inch(h)*3.5inch(diameter), perfect for your plants to blossom.
We believe that by generating demand for green products made from recycled plastic, we can keep adding value to otherwise harmful material and prevent it from ending up in landfills, the oceans, or incinerators. We enlighten the companies on the possibility of numerous green products that could be created from discarded waste and put to manifold uses. It is high time we make a visible and substantial commitment to the circular economy.
At Minus Degre Manufacturers Pvt.Ltd, we advocate for localized plastic recycling and re-manufacturing by simplifying logistics that lead to the reduction of CO2 emissions. We are working on technology that will help us reduce our footprint and to reach a 100% material utilization rate through conscious buying.
Our aspirational goal is to raise awareness and sensitivity in people’s minds towards plastic waste. A beautiful and functional eco-friendly product would help us clear out the clogged landfills and make the world brimming with infinite possibilities. Thus, It is our duty and commitment to the circular economy to enlighten your lives with the beautiful gift of nature. Moreover, we are not just a supplier but also a waste management advocate and your new friend in understanding and working towards true sustainability.
Risks and Challenges
Like all products, this product also comes with its set of risks and challenges. One of the biggest challenges is that the campaign does not succeed and the backer might lose their money. However, if the fundraising goal is met, then the reward will be shipped to the backers’ address.
Challenges might also emerge during production and logistics, leading to untimely delivery and other such issues.
The crowdfunding platform is aware of such risks and has several mitigation measures in place. Each campaign is awarded a ‘campaign success probability score,’ which indicates its success rate. Furthermore, the platform vets and verifies all campaigns thoroughly before launching them. The entire process involves understanding the scale and impact of the campaign, which further helps determine its success.
Reward-based crowdfunding allows backers to gain a reward for supporting a project. It incentivizes backers to access the crowdfunded product or other goodies and merchandise early. There are risks involved with backing a project but it can also be a rewarding attempt. The backers get to support a project that they feel passionately about and in doing so, they also fuel innovation and growth. Ultimately, it is rewarding for both parties concerned; creators receive backing and support, whereas, for backers, it means supporting a project they are passionate about and earning rewards.
Which type of campaign is this?
This campaign is a “Keep it all” campaign. Under the ‘keep it all’ framework, the campaigners can keep all the money raised on their fundraiser irrespective of whether the goal is reached or not.
What are the risks involved in a reward-based campaign?
You are supporting a crowd-funded campaign to bring to life a creative project. As with supporting any creative endeavor, there is a risk that the project may not be successful. This risk will be borne by you, as a backer and supporter of this creative campaign. CrowdHive is not responsible for reward fulfillment or the success of any project.
However, we have assigned a “Campaign Success Probability Score” to help you assess the success probability of each campaign. A higher score equates to a higher possibility for success and lower risk. This campaign has been assigned a campaign success probability score of 80.
What is a Campaign Success Probability Score?
A campaign success probability score indicates the success rate for delivering the rewards to backers by every campaigner.
- A score of 60 and above indicates that the campaign has higher risks and a medium success rate associated with it.
- A score of 70 and above indicates that the campaign has a medium success rate in fulfilling almost all of its pledges.
- A score of 80 and above indicates that the campaign has a high success rate of fulfilling all its pledges.
