Why We Designed This

Our most environmentally-friendly easel!

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. The sturdy frame and shelf is constructed of bamboo, a sustainable and fast growing plant and the Large Open Tubs are made with 100% recycled post-consumer plastic tubs.

Each black tub includes an imprint so teachers and students know it's different than others in the classroom. Hopefully it sparks some questions and conversations about the importance of recycling!

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.
