Closure of Mokugift after planting 460,000 trees

With deep regret we must announce that after 5 years of making it easy for anyone to plant a real tree for $1, we have decided that Mokugift and PlantMyPhone will cease operations.

We closed our office to reduce costs in January and worked remotely. We’ve pivoted our offering several times since launching, but the business hasn’t scaled enough to be self-sustainable.

The only thing that has kept Mokugift and PlantMyPhone operational this long has been corporate partners like Flipswap and CouchBase.

We’d like to recommend that you continue to plant trees via Sustainable Harvest International

Mokugift has been Nerd Stalked!

Failcon was awesome. We met many great companies and brave entrepreneurs that realize that understanding and embracing failure is how we become successful. Perseverance!

I met with Adolfo of Nerd Stalker, a video blog that interviews tech entrepreneurs. Check out Nerd Stalker for insightful interviews. Here is our video interview. Adolfo has nerd cred. He's actually typed/punched those old-school punch cards as a kid.

Mokugift Featured in Top 7 Best Green iPhone Apps

I've won awards for furniture design in the past, so you can tell that I love design, architecture and the environment. Today, one of my favorite blogs, Inhabitat, selected Mokugift's A Real Tree iPhone app as one of the Top 7 Best Green iPhone apps!

This means a lot to me. More interestingly, the post starts off with "...Electronics have a pretty nasty rep as polluters of the Earth, but they can actually be an environmentalist’s best friend when they’re used for good instead of evil...". It almost foreshadows Mokugift's next project....stay tuned.
