Each box is made from sheets of natural wood from White Poplar (also known as Leuce) trees, cut to a thickness of 1 to 3 milimeters by a Rotary Veneer Lathe. White poplar trees can grow from 25 to 30 centimeters in diameter and as tall as 10 to 15 meters in only five years. They can be planted as low as sea level, or as high as 500 meters, and every part of the plant can be used, leaving little to no waste. Additionally, because poplar trees grow quickly, they can convert large amounts of CO2 into oxygen, improving the Earth’s air quality. 

 

From construction, to containers, to furniture and more, poplar wood has been used in a wide variety of applications worldwide for over three decades. It is widely acknowledged as the most environmentally friendly packing material.
