Planboo is a SustainTech startup based in Stockholm. We have just begun a 5-month intensive Climate Action Accelerator programme hosted by Sting, the number one startup accelerator programme in the Nordics. We are a small team of internationals, Priya and Freddie are from the UK and Marc is from Catalonia, Spain.
We are a conscious creative team of surfers, scientists, designers, gardeners, rebels and humans.
At Planboo we:
1) Capture carbon, with bamboo the fastest growing plant in the world. Bamboo absorbs CO2 through photosynthesis, allowing businesses and individuals to capture their emissions and reach Net Zero.
2) Create jobs in the Global South: Bamboo grows in 6 out of 7 continents of the world providing employment to millions of people. Planboo connects bamboo growers, providing a long-term sustainable source of income for some of the world’s poorest.
3) We make low carbon products. Bamboo is a grass so it can be harvested annually, growing back bigger each year. This leaves us with a rapidly renewable material which can be made into anything from buckets to buildings.
Follow our journey and help us to shift out of the old and into the boo!
