S.C.A.R.E. Social Chaos and Response Emergency Kits

Your Scare Kit is to help you escape or survive “People” and the chaotic events in which they cause– A small portable bag with just enough elements in it to give you just a second or two of advantage to escape and make it to a safer location.

  • Plants create oxygen and abate runoff
  • Plants are cheaper to buy and install yourself
