Environment-friendly Tropical Hardwood from the Brokopondo Hydro Lake

Beneath the murky surface of the Brokopondo Hydro Lake in Suriname, lies a hidden treasure of over 60 years: a 150,000 hectares tropical forest lies submerged beneath the waters of the hydro lake. This solid tropical hardwood cannot be recovered easily. Divers must venture 15 meters into the deep waters to recover the wood. We bring this treasure from the lake right into your home.
Harvesting tropical hardwood has long been associated with the harm imposed on our ecosystems namely through the logging of trees on land resulting in the destruction of natural habitats of many species. By harvesting this unique underwater solid tropical hardwood, no negative externailities arise that further deter our environment. Brokopondo Lakewood contributes to the well-being of our ecosystems /environment whilst carving out/ working towards a more sustainable future.
