Conscious Capitalism

EcoPlanet Bamboo’s model is built around the concept of "conscious capitalism", a for profit business model that requires a unique blending of "head and heart”. Our model utilizes the development of FSC certified bamboo plantations as a commercial solution for the reduction of deforestation. These operations provide a secure alternative fiber for timber manufacturing industries globally and create large numbers of desperately needed jobs in areas suffering from abject poverty, all while reversing the effects of global climate change through the restoration of large areas of degraded forest land. EcoPlanet Bamboo's model of conscious capitalism represents a truly sustainable, triple bottom line investment.
