FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

What type of wood is used

We make sure that we use wood from sustainable resources, which we know are being replanted.  


We use Moso bamboo to our products made out of bamboo. Bamboo is naturally pest resistant, which means it does not need to be sprayed with pesticides. Moso bamboo is one of the most sustainable types of wood in the world, since It regrows fast and requires only little water to grow, compared to other resources.  


We are currently using the following types of wood. 

- Annatto, fast growing sub-/tropical scrub. 

- Bamboo, We only use Moso Bamboo. 

- Ebony, for the contrast.

- Maple, Symbol of strength 

- Olive, for that Mediterranean touch.

How do you intend to improve the environment, locally and international?

We spend minimum 25% of our surplus on a greener environment. 


We have several initiatives which we implement with the help of your support. Follow our blog and Instagram for the latest update.


1) Hanging gardens of Malta

Imagine walking around the historic streets of Malta hearing birds tipping in the shade of bushes and trees from above. Believe in that today, rather than tomorrow. We believe that generating local hot spots of flowers, scrubs and trees on roofs and balconies will bring more life to the island. Most Maltese people live in a place that has access to either a balcony or roof, which can be turned into a green haven. 


2) Investing in green energy

On an island which has 300 sunny days a year, one might get surprised that only a few % of the energy generated comes from the sun or other CO2 neutral resources. We believe that this number should be higher, and want to invest in green energy. We only use solar energy in Malta. Go Green Energy! 


3) Supporting reforestation projects

We believe that creating a better environment, does not only mean the local environment, we want to support on an international scale as well. We support several reforestation projects throughout the world, to create a greener earth. Please see our blog for the latest updates regarding which projects we support. You can help us by adding a tree to your shopping cart before checkout. Together we are stronger. The trees are planted with the NGO organisation Eden Reforestation Project.


4) Recycle, Reuse, Biodegradable

We recommend all to Recycle and Reuse our products as many times as possible to save on our resources. After all we have no planet B. We strive to make all our products 100% Biodegradable to cause no harm to the environment after use.  


5) You, A Sustainable Superstar 

You can do yours too. Small changes in your daily life for a cleaner greener future makes a big difference. Imagine that all people living in Malta stood together for a greener environment, how would Malta look like. I know, clean seas, clean air, clean green streets. If you have any ideas or initiatives you want us to be part of for a better greener future, do not hesitate to contact us.
