Our Vision & Mission
Our vision is to use agricultural byproducts to create materials to make sustainable products for daily living and agriculture applications.
We aim to add value to renewable agricultural resources and reduce carbon and water footprints. These agriculture byproducts share resources with the fruits and therefore do not compete for land and water.
After agricultural residues are collected, primarily from coconut husks and pineapple leaves, they are converted into versatile and innovative materials. These can be used for textiles such as apparel, footwear and upholstery and agri applications such as for soil amendment and horse bedding. These products and collection processes can help address some of the world’s sustainability goals.
We’ve partnered with the world’s largest coconut producer, Indonesia’s Sambu Group, and are in a joint venture with one of Thailand’s largest canned pineapple producers. Such relationships ensure scalability and a consistent supply of resources. We are building more such partnerships with coconut and pineapple sources across Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.
Take a peek at our projected growth and timelines for 2020 and beyond.
We are constantly exploring new markets and the unlimited potential of renewable resources, so do feel free to get in touch if you believe in climate action for a better future.

Implement master plan to build a husk processing plant that can process several millions of coconut husks per day
Our aims are:
To convert agricultural byproducts and residues (such as coconut husk and pineapple leaf) for agriculture, bio-based textiles, innovative materials for interiors, furnishing, and other useful applications
To collaborate with companies and organizations who work with farmers, in order to secure a scalable supply of agricultural residues
To promote our three principle pillars of:
- Economic Growth & Profitability: to demonstrate, through example, that business and sustainability can go hand-in-hand
- Environmentalism: to prevent harmful husk-disposal by burning or clogging up water systems.
- Social Responsibility: to supplement the income of small-scale farmers by purchasing their agricultural residues such as pineapple leaves.
