Cali Bamboo was founded to….
– Reduce the effects of global warming on the planet
– Combat habitat loss – the #1 cause of animal extinction
…all by replacing traditional timber with sustainable materials.
And it’s working! Here’s what we’ve accomplished so far.
By using renewable materials instead of traditional lumber.
Pounds of CO2
Absorbed every year from the trees we save annually.
Acres of Habitat Saved
From diverting logging in the rainforest, home to thousands of species.
Strength & Durability
Why is it Green?
Cork is harvested from the renewable bark of the cork oak tree and is one of the most sustainable materials available. Cork trees are not damaged in the harvest of the wood since only the outer bark is “trimmed” which then grows back completely time and again to allow the cork tree to remain living.
- Cork material is harvested without killing the tree.
- Removing the excess cork bark around a tree actually helps promote the health of the tree.
- The type of cork tree we gather materials from can be harvested at least 20 times in a tree’s lifespan.
- One of the most green and renewable materials in the world.
A cork oak can live for up to 200 years with harvesting occurring once every nine years or about 20 harvests during a tree’s life – in this manner cork is one of nature´s most renewable resources.
