Talk of The Town Visits EcoPlanet Bamboo
29th November 2017
THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL COMMERCIAL BAMBOO PLANTATION IN AFRICA CAN REVOLUTIONISE COMMERCIAL INDUSTRIES FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Bathurst bamboo plantation grows a sustainable future
At the end of November 2017 local newspaper Talk of the Town visited EcoPlanet Bamboo's Kowie Bamboo Farm in the Bathurst area of South Africa's Eastern Cape. This sustainable and certified bamboo farm has received significant interest as Africa's first commercial bamboo plantation, AND the first globally to be grown from tissue culture. Now, 5 years after operations began, a new phase has begun with the manufacturing of a range of specialty bamboo products.
Talk of the Town met with our management team, and had a day to experience what we do on the farm and within our research facilities and manufacutring operations.
