Teragren's bamboo line certified by USDA

Teragren, a manufacturer of bamboo flooring, panels, veneer and worktops, says it earned the USDA-certified biobased product label for its complete line of bamboo building products.

The label verifies that the products’ amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds prescribed USDA levels.

“We are very excited that our products have tested at such a high biobased content, and are looking forward to proudly displaying the USDA BioPreferred label on all of our products going forward” Teragren president Mike Boshart said in a statement.

“We have always known that rapidly renewable moso bamboo pulls carbon out of circulation and contributes significantly to global oxygen replenishment. Having the biobased content of Teragren products verified by a third party is the next step in communicating this valuable message to specifiers and consumers.”
