American Green Premiers Ground-Breaking GroRaptor Aquaponics System

American Green's Tranzbyte Division Launches New Site at www.tranzbyte.com to Increase Its Overall Market Footprint

TEMPE, AZ--(Marketwired - Jan 13, 2015) - American Green, Inc. (OTC PINK: ERBB) has aggregated its divisions to produce the GroRaptor, a home-scale aquaponics system originally designed for do-it-yourself home cultivators with virtually endless additional opportunities for sales. Inspired by American Green's Director of Cultivation, Michael Silvia, to create a simple 'home brew' solution for medical cannabis patients, American Green's new GroRaptor recirculating aquaponics system has evolved into an urban gardening system for anyone interested in small-area-high-yield agriculture. (http://www.tranzbyte.com/divisions/cultivation)

In this system, the fish tank provides the nutrient-rich water in the form of fish waste to the plants and the plants then filter the water and re-circulate it back to the fish tank. This method of cultivation re-uses 99% of the system's water, losing only a small amount to evaporation.

GroRaptor also features American Green's own Truth M6 LED Lighting, furthering the energy savings in the system while upping the quality of the plants. M6 LED, developed specially for agriculture, provides a comprehensive vegetative spectrum, draws minimal power, and has a life expectancy of more than ten years.

"The original idea came from my own passion for quality craft beer. I still buy beer but I love to make something of the highest quality, myself. The collaborative design wound up as something that could be a regular fixture inside any home," says Director of Cultivation Silvia. "Once we had a prototype, the interest by everyone who saw it, not just people interested in legal cannabis, set our sights on a much larger market."

In addition, the company has invigorated its Tranzbyte division with a re-launch of the web site found at www.tranzbyte.com. Tranzbyte has continued to operate in a primarily technological capacity for the company over the past decade and now emerges as the means by which sales and marketing can take advantage of many of the company's products and promote them in wide, diverse marketplaces. The division's expansion opens the sale of OG Tea, Jurassic, Truth Lighting, Verified Vending (called ZaZZZ in the legal cannabis market), and any future product additions originally designed for cannabis but with "legs" to expand the products' appeal to a much larger market.

"The country is nearly ready, but, as we well know, the word 'cannabis' or the image of the leaf still harbors some resistance from those who haven't been exposed to the facts about the plant and its benefits," says Stephen Shearin, American Green president. "Our products need not be limited due to misplaced associations, and Tranzbyte is the perfect technology vehicle to offer these products to people who might have otherwise overlooked what they have to offer," Shearin concludes.
