In 2004, two college friends Jeff Goldberg and Tanner Haigwood set off on a year-long surf trip in search of good waves, good times, and a plan to find an idea for a company that could make a difference. To help fund the adventure, they took up part-time work while living on Kauai, HI. One of the odd jobs was chopping down bamboo, leading to an epiphany: the realization that bamboo could and should be used as a building product in place of traditional trees. Not only is bamboo the fastest growing plant on earth and rapidly-renewable, it could also help reduce global warming and save animal habitat loss – the number one cause for extinction. Cali Bamboo was born!
Cali Bamboo’s mission is to provide sustainable materials for high quality building products. By providing alternative products made from renewable resources, we can make a difference in the future of our planet.
Our product offerings include bamboo flooring, fencing, plywood, poles, and recycled composite decking. In 2012 we introduced our GreenClaimed™ brand, debuting sustainably-sourced products including cork, eucalyptus, and recycled/reclaimed decking.
We’re passionate about what we do and love helping anyone from home DIY-ers to businesses create the project of their dreams and stay green!
Why Cali Bamboo?
Cali Bamboo was founded to reduce the effects of global warming on the planet, and combat animal habitat loss by replacing traditional timber with sustainable materials.
