Why We Designed This


Our bamboo easels are a more sustainable choice than metal models because they have a smaller carbon footprint. Bamboo is a renewable resource that grows quickly and sequesters carbon, unlike steel which produces carbon. For every bamboo product purchased, Copernicus will make a donation to conserve natural panda habitat through the World Wildlife Fund.

This easel was designed to bring natural elements into the classroom and is ideal for neutral or early years environments. It is now available with see-through hinged lids that make it easy to keep things tidy and allows the tubs to be stacked when not in the cart. The hinge eliminates the need to remove the lid when accessing materials inside, so no missing  lids!

When you purchase this easel, approximately 38% less carbon is produced compared to our metal Royal® Reading Writing Center. That’s the equivalent of driving a gas-powered car 91 miles/147 km!

Educator's Reviews

I couldn’t resist the beautiful natural colors of this easel, and I highly recommend it to any teacher who is looking to create a calm classroom environment. I’ve had my Bamboo Teaching Easel for three years, and it’s amazing durability keeps it looking new, year after year. This easel is easy to wheel around my third grade classroom where I use it to create anchor charts during mini lessons and as a whiteboard at our back table during small group instruction.
