Why Bamboo? Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants, reaching maturity in 5 years or less. Other varieties take much longer, 40 years for Brazilian Walnut, 70 years for Oak, and 100 years for Jarrah. Bamboo is also one of the best plants to sequester carbon, and releases about 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees. Each bamboo culm used in the production of Greenington products is individually selected by the local farmer working and tending the land. Harvest is done by hand. This preserves the balance of the native bamboo forest, and leaves the bamboo root system intact. From this root system new bamboo shoots will emerge, and new bamboo culms will develop. Greenington does not use clear cutting methods which are commonly in practice in the wood lumber industry.
Our factory 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. Furthermore, Greenington follows international standard guidelines according to ISO 14001 Environmental Management. Following international standard guidelines, the Greenington factory carefully selects materials we use, and ensure that all products are tested to meet or exceed the most stringent manufacturing standards.
