About Nanoleaf: http://www.nanoleaf.me/
Nanoleaf is a green technology start-up. Our vision is to create a better world through conservation and to preserve the planet that we love. We are constantly working on energy efficient products that promote and encourage people to live more green. We hope that one day our great grand children can go on their own adventures and experience the wonders of mother nature in the same way we can today. Our first line of products to hit the market is the Nanoleaf One LED light bulbs (formerly known as the NanoLight on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter), and Nanoleaf Bloom. We were lucky enough to receive an overwhelming amount of support from the Kickstarter community when we debuted our light bulb there in January of 2013 and again in July of 2014, which allowed us to start mass production for both products. Our ultimate goal is to revolutionize the lighting industry with our innovations and light up the world while preserving our planet.
