Ecological, functional, practical and easy to use irrigation systems

  Oyas®

 

The Oyas? What’s that…?

Oyas are microporous ceramic pots that you bury near your plants and fill with water. They slowly diffuse in the ground the humidity necessary to the plant.

This constant and not excessive watering avoids stressing the plants. It keeps the substrate loose and moist and favors the development of fauna and microflora, all of which are favorable factors for better plant development. Weeds hardly develop anymore because the top layer of the soil is not irrigated. Interesting, isn’t it? Still not convinced? Then a little explanatory video is in order…

How does it work?

Oyas® are extremely easy to use.
Oyas® irrigation is one of the most environmentally friendly, functional, practical and easy to use irrigation systems available today.
Even though “irrigation pottery” dates back over 2000 years, Oyas® are innovative because of the following features:

  • A natural, 100% ecological and ethical product
  • A low carbon footprint
  • Exceptional water savings, from 50 to 75%.
  • Almost 100% of the water actually used by the plant
  • The plant draws only the water it needs. Indeed, thanks to the porosity of Oyas®, the soil by capillary action generates a humid zone around the pot
  • No evaporation. The Oyas® is buried and the soil on the surface is not moistened, so there is no loss
  • Simplified watering: time saving
  • Fewer weeds, thanks to the exclusive root watering system
  • Fewer diseases for the same reasons, thus a strong reduction of phytosanitary products
  • A method of production that supports the maintenance of a profession and a know-how.

Oyas to plant

For flower pots or planters indoors or on the terrace.
Small volumes (0.25 liter) that are easily planted in all types of pots next to the plant or flower to be watered.
Plant the tip of the Oyas in a pot, balcony or flower box. Only the bubble remains visible.
Fill with water from time to time; the tip will slowly diffuse it to the plant.
Available in three versions: natural, enameled and decorated.
Very practical for vacations or during your travels, the Oyas can irrigate the plant for about a week.
Delivered with a cap to avoid evaporation

WATER IS A PRECIOUS GOOD

The Earth is referred to as a “blue planet” where water is plentiful, and in fact, it flows freely from our taps. But the truth is that fresh water is becoming scarce because it is being overexploited.

In Switzerland, water consumption has risen sharply over the past 50 years, to 150 liters per person per day. The quality of surface and ground water is decreasing, and drought is becoming the norm in some regions.
Reducing consumption, especially in the garden, is becoming an urgent eco-citizen act.

A trend towards drought

According to IPCC experts, the average temperature by 2100 will increase by 1.1 to 6.4°C.
The various climate forecast models for Western Europe agree on a marked warming of temperatures and a decrease in rainfall in the Mediterranean regions in summer.
Between June and August, 80% of water is consumed by agriculture. Water savings in this sector are becoming mandatory. Limiting irrigation to “the right amount at the right time” will become the norm.

At Oyas.ch we don’t just sell clay pots…
We are trying to change the world.
A few Oyas are not going to reverse the global warming curve,
but in the manner of the Hummingbird of the Amerindian fable,
we also want to do our part.
