STEENBERGEN, The Netherlands, May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –

A new Groasis invention, a biodegradable version of the proven successful Waterboxx,
is the answer against desertification. The Groasis Greenboxx, made of recycled paper, is
an environmentally friendly development of the Waterboxx. The Groasis Greenboxx can be
used to plant one tree in a desert without using irrigation. It saves up to 97% of water
while planting. After a year the Groasis Greenboxx degrades and functions as manure for
the tree.

Waterboxx. This Waterboxx is made of polypropylene and can be used multiple times.

Through this press announcement Groasis invites people or organizations to subscribe

source model many companies and persons test the Glass in order to improve its use.

economical and ecologically interesting trees. This way we can help feed the world, fight
erosion and clear the air of CO through a money-making business model. Pieter Hoff
says: “With the Groasis Greenboxx we introduce an unimaginably easy tool to combat erosion
through reforestation of manmade deserts without using irrigation. I hope thousands will
subscribe on our website to help us test and improve the Greenboxx in order to reach our
objective to reforest the world.”

Groasis is successfully active, planting trees in over 30 countries with extreme dry
and hot climates. In July Groasis will introduce the next groundbreaking instrument to
reach the objective of worldwide reforestation of manmade deserts, the “Growsafe” plant
