We’re on a mission to actually solve climate change.

Move Fast and Fix Things TM

Plantd was founded under the belief that wood does not need to come from trees and that building civilizations of the future will require carbon-negative materials to reverse the level of atmospheric carbon present today and sustain life, as we know it, on our planet.

Starting with the homebuilding industry, we are leading a movement to materials made from renewable grass and building the factory of the future to ensure atmospheric carbon captured in the field is locked away inside the walls, floors, and roofs of new homes.
