A Plant Vending Machine - Is it an Oxymoron?

3년 전

Who doesn't love a vending machine? Near instant food, small queues, little distraction, 24/365 service. Great machines!

Passing through Bangkok recently I came across a plant vending machine.


The plants were rather cute in the machine but it really did get me wondering is this the best use of a machine.

It held 12 plants, compare this to hundreds of chocolate bars in a machine. Hmmm not so good. Also, do we really want the convenience of buying plants in a vending machine? Surely buying plants is an active decision not an impulse buy or a purchase that needs 24 hour convenience.

Maybe I'm wrong. But here we are, plants from vending machines!



You too can grab yours from Central Mall in Bangkok.

gotta wonder will this be profitable. 12 plants that need pretty regular human maintenance.

Environmentally it would do more harm than good- perhaps it raises awareness or creates influence
