This expanded area will enable the landscape scale restoration of a highly degraded ecosystem in a commercially viable manner. Remnant forest patches and native vegetation are conserved, and a full canopy cover established, securing critical ecosystem functions while also providing sufficient raw fiber to develop an integrated and sustainable bio-based economy. “This expanded area allows EcoPlanet Bamboo to focus on Ghana as the site of our first closed loop, low footprint, bamboo based bio-refinery, while restoring an entire forest ecosystem” says CEO Troy Wiseman. “Once mature the integrated ecosystem will yield more than 700,000 tons of raw fiber a year, sufficient for the production of a tree free, deforestation free pulp, and securing more than 1,500 jobs in an area suffering from extreme rural poverty.”

Although a firm believer in capitalism, it is my heart for people that drives me and has been at the core of my entrepreneurial career since leaving home at 17, with nothing but $300 and a dream. That dream was to build a company where people wanted to work hard, felt they mattered and were encouraged to reach for the stars. I knew undoubtedly that to have the influence needed to make a real difference in the world you have to have money. Three years later, with money saved from working two jobs, and a new credit card with 21% interest, I started my first company. Growing up with not much more than food on the table and a roof over my head I understood first hand what’s like to be treated as though I didn’t matter. What is it? There are millions of people who wake every day thinking that because of their circumstances they have no hope for a better tomorrow. Troy Wiseman EcoPlanet Bamboo. Press Releases -

Dismissed as a weed or marginalized in traditional forest management, bamboo could actually play an important role in forest and landscape restoration. With adequate attention, investment, and the right standards in place, it could become a major renewable and sustainable crop—if we can update our outmoded view of it. Perceptions of a natural resource often shape how it is used. In this case, bamboo’s problem can be traced back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The advent of modern agriculture and modern forest management changed the European approach to plant management. EcoPlanet Bamboo. EcoPlanet Bamboo.

The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.

The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.

More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 50,000 partners in 196 countries to build environmental democracy.
