Green Blade® and the environment

Fibandco takes great pride in offering sustainable, high-performance products. All Green Blade® products use our plant based veneer from recycled banana plant trunks. Fibandco recycle the trunk (or stem) of the plant once the fruit has been harvested. After bearing fruit, the banana plant naturally dies, for a new plant to grow from the bulb. Hence Fibandco give a second life to a by-product of banana farming.

No water is used in the manufacturing of Green Blade®, and the Fibandco factory produces the energy it uses thorough solar photovoltaic panels.

There are three potential categories in which Green Blade could contribute positively to LEED credits: Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental quality, and Conception & Innovation.

All panels used to make Green Blade® products are FSC certified. The Forest Stewardship Council is an international not for-profit, multi-stakeholder organization established in 1993 to promote responsible management of the world’s forests.
