Our Philosophy...Our Passion...Our Vision
PalapaGuy was launched in 1998 with one main focus, to promote environmental awareness by purchasing natural and sustainable products, providing insight and inspiration to consumers who are ready to make small changes that add up.
We have carefully scrutinized the best earth friendly products to offer on our site, from thatching material, to our lumber. These products are considered eco-friendly because, they don't cause damage to the environment when they are produced or disposed of.
About Our Thatch Product
Palm fronds are considered "green" because of the way they're collected. At PalapaGuy we use only quality palms that are cut and the rest of the plant is left intact to provide wildlife habitat and continue growing for future use.
Social benefits are also reaped since more money goes to the people who cut the palm leaves to the small villages that weave the final product. Eco-palm producers operating in Mexico follow guidelines similar to those for certified chocolate and coffee.
As remarkable renewable resource and the fastest growing plant on earth, bamboo grows faster than the fastest growing tree. Some species grow up to 1 meter per day, and can be selectively harvested annually with no need for replanting.
Bamboo plays an important role in the reduction of timber consumption, environmental and forest protection, poverty alleviation and sustainable development of rural economies.
