Sustainably grown & managed bamboo can disrupt the four industries that currently consume the majority of the world's timber supply. EcoPlanet Bamboo is a leader in investments in bamboo plantations in Nicaragua, Ghana & South Africa.
MAKING BAMBOO THE TIMBER OF THE 21st CENTURY
EcoPlanet Bamboo's primary mission is to industrialize bamboo as a sustainable alternative fiber for major global markets and products that currently still rely on the harvesting of natural forests for their raw resource, and in doing so address issue of environmental and social concern. Although bamboo has been around and in use for millennia, its manufacture into high end, technically processed products is still relatively new. EcoPlanet's investment into research & development and manufacturing technologies that can process bamboo fiber ensures that:
1. Products manufactured from EcoPlanet Bamboo's deforestation free bamboo fiber meet the highest level of sustainability certification, and positive social and environmental impact that these bamboo plantations have been internationally accredited for.
2. That all products meet the current quality, specifications and price as products currently manufactured from unsustainably harvested timber.
