EcoSphere Pod Review and Giveaway from Wind & Weather Ends 7/8



Have you ever had to purchase a gift for someone who already has everything?! Have you spent hours and hours shopping in the stores looking for that "perfect" gift, only to go home empty handed?! That was me just a couple of weeks ago as I searched for a gift for my husband for Father's Day. I kept coming up empty handed until I was introduced to Wind & Weather!!!  Wind & Weather has some of the neatest, most unique products I have found anywhere else and I was so excited to browse their site!!



First of all, their Gift Guide was extremely helpful! I was able to search for gifts by occasion, price or by interest. I searched for gifts that were "Just for Fun" and within minutes, I found so many perfect gifts for my husband! We finally narrowed our choices down and chose the EcoSphere Pod! The EcoSphere Pod has to be one of the neatest things I have ever seen.



About the EcoSphere:
This fascinating display of art and science contains active micro-organisms, bright red shrimp, and algae existing in a clear "soup" of filtered sea water. Only light is needed to keep their world in a perfect plant-and-animal balance: algae and bacteria are eaten by the shrimp whose waste supports their regeneration. Created with technology developed by scientists at NASA. No maintenance required.

What we Think:

Fascinating is not even the word. This is just such a neat product! I was a little skeptical about it, wondering how it could possibly work and how life could be maintained inside of a sealed pod. When it arrived, we were shocked to see life swimming around in the sphere!  The kids immediately started asking a billion questions which was really neat because it was like a Science lesson right in our living room!  The pod we received contains shrimp, algae, gorgonia, decorative shells and gravel. These are all parts of the working ecosystem. We never have to feed them, change the water or anything because everything they need is living right there inside of the pod. All they need is light to continue thriving in the perfect EcoSphere. How cool is that?!  My husband put it in our bedroom on the dresser and we love to wach it. It adds a lot to the decor in the room and is such a neat piece to look at. This would be great for an office or any other room as a conversation piece too!



This would be a great gift for one of those in your life who appreciate finer things but already have everything!  They come in all different sizes and shapes too so if you want something bigger, you have that option! The EcoSphere pod is a great art or conversation piece and it is sure to make someone in your life really happy!!!!!

Check out Wind & Weather for their complete line of indoor and outdoor products! They carry everything from decorative fountains to weather tools! You can even purchase live plants. And if you really like their products and you have a big event coming up, check out their online registry option!  Wind & Weather has something for everyone!
