To provide customers with only the finest in bamboo home furniture. They strive to ensure that their products represent quality, style and elegance; that’s why they use only the best materials, work with only the best craftsmen and provide the best service.
At Greenington, they harvest one of Earth's fastest-growing plants straight from bamboo forests in China to design naturally beautiful furniture in a process that is environmentally friendly and helps sustain our planet. And bamboo is one of the best plants on Earth to sequester carbon. It releases approximately 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
Each bamboo culm used in the production of Greenington products is individually selected by the local farmer and harvested by hand. This preserves the ecosystem of the native bamboo forest, and leaves the bamboo root system intact, from which new bamboo shoots will emerge and grow the following year. Greenington does not use clear cutting, a timber harvesting method that involves the removal of standing trees in a given area, commonly used in the wood lumber industry. As such, Greenington utilizes the entire bamboo culm in the manufacturing process, wasting nothing. 100% of the bamboo material is used, including the sawdust, which is put to use generating steam for the dry kiln room and press machine.
