Eldot, LLC is a bamboo product design firm and distributor. Their mission is to design, facilitate production, and distribute quality, sustainable home furnishing and architectural products to benefit the environment and its inhabitants. In order to be a catalyst for rural poverty alleviation and positive climate change, Eldot is committed to developing handmade, innovative bamboo based products for contemporary society. Their work is as much an industrial revolution as a social movement for a triple bottom line: People, Planet, and Profit.

Bamboo has the potential to alleviate social disparity and to revitalize the ecological balance of our contemporary global society. It is the fastest growing woody plant and captures 30% more Carbon Dioxide (CO2) than trees. Bamboo is a highly renewable substitute for wood in the furniture and construction industries. It grows particularly well in tropical and sub-tropical areas, most of which are in developing countries. Rural communities in these areas have abundant, yet underutilized natural resources and crafting traditions.
