Hemp With Bamboo Roots
The idea of using hemp as a sustainable wood substitute was inspired by the experiences of our founder, Greg. He was working for a bamboo flooring company years ago when the idea came to him. Since then, Greg and his development team have worked tirelessly adapting the process of creating bamboo-based lumber into one that utilizes different plant species instead, like eucalyptus and hemp (patented).
Our intention has never been to just create another lumber product. Instead, we strive to benefit humanity by providing a viable wood alternative. This helps the environment by removing the devastating effects of deforestation from the harvesting process. Simultaneously, we introduce a new cash crop to the farmers of the world, which will undoubtedly disrupt the $60+ billion dollar a year wood industry.
