Biography

BOTH CO. IS A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO SOLVING THIRST AND HUNGER USING AQUAPONICS METHODS.

Both Co. puts sustainability at the heart of everything we do. We believe in the connectivity of all things, and that what goes around comes around. Many industries today are behind the curve when it comes to consideration of the environment, public health, and local economies in the daily decisions they make.

We’re bucking that trend—in fact, as a company, we make our living using practices that are restorative upon our bodies, communities, and the world around us. We’ve arrived with a fun, delicious, and local solution—one that preserves salmon populations and coral reefs for generations to come, and offers the modern consumer an alternative to conventional produce or the hyped-up marketing gimmicks surrounding the organic food movement.

BOTH COMPANY USES SUNLIGHT, PASSION, AND GARBAGE TO RAISE FISH AND VEGETABLES.

An ages-old method of food production practiced by the Aztecs in Central Mexico to the rice farmers of China and Southeast Asia, aquaponics uses up to 90% less water and 1/3 of the energy as traditional soil-based forms of agriculture. Additionally, plants in aquaponics systems grow up to three times as fast as crops grown in soil.
