About Plantd

Many people think we need a scarcity model to solve climate change.

But we believe the opposite is true.

We see a future that is abundant.

With Plantd, there’s a way to solve climate change by building more, not less.

Because with our materials, every new home and building is an opportunity to lock away vasts amounts of atmospheric carbon.

About Plantd

We are a team of engineers, scientists, storytellers, farmers, and technicians. We are inventing a new way to solve climate change by building a factory of the future that locks away carbon in the production of a new durable building material made from grass instead of trees—called Plantd materials.

Factory of the Future

A leap forward in production technology, our manufacturing platform reduces costs and cuts carbon emissions.

The story

More than a climate change problem to solve, we view atmospheric carbon as a valuable resource.

Plantd is the quickest way to pull carbon from the atmosphere and transform it into useful, durable products. Starting with the homebuilding industry, we are leading a shift to carbon-negative building materials made from perennial grass and building the factory of the future to ensure carbon captured on the farm is locked away inside the walls, floors, and roofs of the places we live, work, and play.
