Our circular economy

We repurpose wood residues for good

As part of our contribution towards a circular economy, we help organisations by providing environmental clean-up services and using the wood residues we collect to manufacture natural products. 

We believe in being resourceful and making the most of what we've been given. Positively impacting the environment, keeping waterways clean, and stopping wood residues from littering the environment.

Repurposing natural residues for a greener tomorrow

What we do

With our experience, expertise, and deep understanding of the repurposing process, we’re able to divert natural waste from landfills and give natural wood waste another purpose.

We work closely with local businesses by helping them repurpose other natural waste products such as sawdust, shavings, manures and fungi, animal bi-products, and green waste.
