FSC® Certification

Although ecologically a grass, bamboo’s fiber closely resembles wood, enabling it to be utilized within timber manufacturing industries and their end products. EcoPlanet Bamboo utilizes only degraded land for our commercial bamboo plantations. Under this framework bamboo does not compete with food production and restores land into fully functioning ecosystems, adding environmental and economic value.

Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification ensures the responsible management of these plantations.
