EcoPlanet Bamboo Group

In the late 1700s, new technology facilitated the faster production of manufactured goods and introduced patterns of production and consumption that would eventually govern the planet we live in today. For hundreds of years, industries have relied on the raw materials found in the world’s natural habitats. From toilet paper to shirts, many of our most used products come from one of the world’s most valuable resources: forests.
~
Deforestation occurs at a heavy pace – billions of trees that can take a hundred years to grow are chopped every year to make products that may only take sixty seconds for a consumer to discard. EcoPlanet Bamboo Group, the world’s largest commercial bamboo plantation company, offers a certified and sustainable fiber alternative to timber harvesting.

Impactful Purchasing

Impactful Purchasing

The Shift Toward Sustainable Shopping

Consumerism in North America has evolved from an ideology to a lifestyle – one in which the gross level of consumption and production has become one of the key measures of our success.
~
The birth of the Industrial Revolution in the late 1700s set a precedent of production and output that would carry well into the 21st century. This magnitude of production has facilitated innovative manufacturing processes and the introduction of new technologies. Since then, our population has exponentially grown, creating a fast paced lifestyle based on the expenditure of money. Now, the Canadian and U.S. economies have become largely dependent on the shopping patterns of their citizens – patterns that have often come at the cost of our environment’s stability.
