Tree Of Life

Pacific Green’s methods are environmentally conscious and ecologically sustainable. The production of Palmwood is economical by using a low tech method to convert a wasted by-product into a long-lasting, beautiful material). And it has a practical role to play in the cycle of land regeneration for indigenous communities re-planting farms with the next crop of young fruit-bearing palms.

Nothing is wasted from the process, everything is used. Even the nitrogen-rich sawdust and wastage is used as a fertiliser for agricultural land. We are not perfect, but we are very close. The Pacific Green products that you buy reflect this commitment to social responsibility and accountability.

The peoples of the South Pacific refer to the coconut palm as ‘tree of life’ because of its many uses. Save the forests, use Palmwood.


Pacific Green’s charter is to recycle discarded coconut palms into beautiful consumer products. Palmwood® was certified Rainforest Safe™ by Rainforest Relief. Greenpeace has cited Palmwood as a sustainable wood source. We have advised the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization on its study on coconut palm stems and our Directors were invited to address the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) on the social responsibility of manufacturing companies. Palmwood has been specified on a number pioneering sustainability projects, such as the world’s first eco-city, Masdar in Abu Dhabi.

FSC Certification

The industry standard for accreditation for conventional wood products is the Forestry Stewardship (FSC). However, Palmwood® is NOT a wood… the coconut palm (cocos nucifera) is in fact a grass. Accordingly, coconut is classified as an agricultural species, and not as a forestry species, so does not pertain to the FSC. If it did pertain, Palmwood® would exceed standard expectations.
