EcoPlanet Bamboo has a Public Private Partnership (PPP) with the Government of Ghana, through the Ghana Forestry Commission. Through this PPP EcoPlanet is developing two adjacent bamboo plantations in the Ashanti Region.
The first 1,500+ acres of bamboo was planted in 2015-2016, with the remainder of the 15,000 acres targeted for planting in 2020-2025. In addition to the bamboo, EcoPlanet is conserving more than 10,000 acres of of fragile and degraded lands through the prevention of fires and illegal harvesting for charcoal.
These bamboo farms are strategically located to provide a sustainable source of bamboo fiber paper and packaging products to European markets.
