Climate change is top of mind for many Indiegogo campaigners, so it shouldn’t be surprising that our green tech category is heating up. Over the last several months, we’ve seen dozens of innovative ideas in green tech; we’d love to share some of the most interesting ones that we’ve come across so far.
But before diving in, it’s important to note that crowdfunding is not shopping. Many of these items are still in development and may not be available for some time. With your support, these will be on their way to making the world a little bit greener.
Here are 8 innovative green tech campaigns on Indiegogo right now.
Lomi: Turn Waste to Compost with a Single Button

GoSun Chillest: Solar Cooler that Doesn’t Need Ice

Instead of using ice, the GoSun Chillest cools food and drinks using the power of the sun. The 45-liter cooler prepares you for any outdoor event with a built-in battery and all-terrain wheels plus thoughtful extras like inside lighting, tie-down straps, and an organization basket.

Aria: NASA-Inspired Hybrid Air Purifier
More than 95% of the world’s population breathes dangerous or polluted air, and most of it sits within our very homes. The Aria by Mateko is trying to change that. This NASA-inspired air purifier detects and eliminates 99% of all indoor air pollutants while blending in with the zen of your home. As a hybrid purifier system, it combines mechanical air purifier technology with the natural air filtration of plants. Polluted air passes through an all-in-one ionizer/HEPA filter/activated carbon filter, then is sent into an internal UV light treatment bay. The remaining pollutants are then sent up to a house plant, which filters out the remaining impurities. Clean, simple, and beautiful. Support this campaign today.
