Full Grown Trees in Years
Bamboo is one of the earth’s fastest growing plants that grows to maturity in 5 years or less.
Bamboo is one of the best plants on the earth to sequester carbon. It also releases about 35 percent more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees.
Each bamboo culm used in the production of Greenington products is individually selected by the local farmer and harvested by hand. This preserves the eco-system of the native bamboo forest, and leaves the bamboo root system intact, from which new bamboo shoots will emerge and grow the following year. Greenington does not use clear cutting, a timber harvesting method that involves the removal of standing trees in a given area, commonly used in the wood lumber industry.
Greenington utilizes the entire bamboo culm in the manufacturing process, wasting nothing. 100% of the bamboo material is used, including the sawdust, which is put to use generating steam for the dry kiln room and press machine.
ISO 14001 ENVIRONMENT MANAGEMENT
Following international standard guidelines, the Greenington factory careful selects what materials are used, and ensures that all products are tested and that they meet or exceed the most stringent manufacturing standards.
