Hi my name is Mark Prescott, I live in Stephentown NY with my wife, two children, four dogs and a cat. I have been in the nursery/lawn and garden industry for almost 30 years and have developed several unique products and hold 3 patents and several provisional patents in the industry. Thanks for looking at my project, because I am going to fix a problem for you if you have a cat.
All you need is a covered cat box, a house plant, and I can completely eliminate litter box odors in your house without harmful sprays, fancy equipment and only using the least expensive litter available (oh, you also need the cat).
Low voltage power supply for saftey, uses between 3 and 12 watts. annual opperating costs are about $6.00. Pump noise is almost undetectable.
See my video on the gallery tab top right over cat cover picture!! (I'm a litte awkward behind the camera, it is not my thing.)
I can do this by using a natural air cleaning process that NASA researched for more than 30 years to improve interior air quality for space travel. This process cleans harmful contaminates from the air (VOCs) using plants and the beneficial bacteria/enzymes living in the plants roots system. Its called Phytoremediation.
I also have a patent pending irrigation system called SELFWTR that makes this air cleaning process effective and inexpensive on a small consumer scale or on a larger scale for commercial buildings.
How Purrfect Air™ came to be:
I am a co-founder of AgroSci Inc., a startup company, which has developed this product. I was working in my home office, which is just fine “usually”, but unfortunately for me the only space available was a little room in the back of the house. This room also had the litter box. This was pretty awful and I was not happy about it. At the same time, I was working on a commercial scale system to clean indoor air using green walls and our SELFWTR irrigation system when it hit me!
While sitting in my cloud of toxic litter box odor, a light bulb went off in my head! Why not use our mini-SELFWTR system with one of my house plants and get rid of the stink using Phytoremediation? After 3 hours of tinkering I had a workable prototype ready to go. I got it running and it was nothing short of a miracle. I know this is a little sad but this system changed my life! Within 15 minutes most of the odors were gone and by the end of the day you could not tell there was a cat box in the room. After all the room air freshener sprays, plug in air fresheners, expensive cat litters, (all of which are very bad for you and the cat), here was a clean natural solution to this problem. Purrfect Air™ actually cleans 1500 gallons of air a day! So not only was the smell gone but the air quality in the room was dramatically improved. I knew then that I had to share this with the world...and this is where you come in.
What I need, what you get: YOU GET RID OF THE STINK FOREVER!
**If campagne goal is not met Rewards will still be filled, we have wholesale orders for Purrfect Air now and will still ship product in March, your participatation will still make a big difference with this product introduction!!**
So be the first to get a Purrfect Air System of your own!!
I am looking at this crowd funding a little differently than perhaps other startup campaigns that you have seen. I have spent many hours in front of bank lenders, venture capitalists and state organizations with some success but....
For this project I want to go right to you. I know this is a big problem in a big market. I want to raise $30,000 by giving great rewards and get this system to you at a great value (25% below retail). Yes, we will have tee shirts, we have even offered our mini-SELFWTR system as a reward (My Lazy Gardener). But I want all you cat owners to see how powerful this air cleaning method is and how easy it is to operate. And Purrfect Air™ will save lots of money and pay for itself many times. Then if I need more funds, I will be able to say, see, these are the people that supported this. You can validate our Purrfect™ Air Litter Box System by supporting our project and getting a green healthy solution to this problem for your own home.
I discovered many things while working on this project about the fragrance industry. Mostly I discovered that what they are selling us is really awful and sometimes very dangerous, without regulation, anything can be put into these products. Acetone, butane, crystalline silica, propane, all these chemicals, known carcinogens, are used in these products. They do not even have to tell you what’s in the fragrance because there is no regulation that makes companies reveal them. Your support will keep you, the cat owner, from using these products and help us finish the commercial product and move to the next project we have for cleaning indoor air.
If you don’t have a cat but like what you see, every bit will help. So consider the smaller contribution rewards, and Purrfect Air™ does make a great gift! You can also make a HUGE contribution by just passing this along to people you know who have a cat. Please tell your friends and thank you so much for your support!!
GET RID OF THE STINK! KEEP THE CAT!
