Why We Designed This

This easel has a natural aesthetic better suited for neutral and early childhood environments.  It is a more sustainable choice than metal models because it has a smaller carbon footprint.

Bamboo is a renewable resource that grows quickly and absorbs 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.

Tips for Eco-Friendly Use

The longer a product lasts, the less resources are needed to replace it. To make sure your whiteboard lasts as long as possible, use non-abrasive cleaners and erasers, do not use permanent markers (but check out our Tips to Remove Permanent Markers video, if you do!), and do not put tape on the board.

If your whiteboard does end up getting a little too worse for wear, we have a whiteboard replacement program! Rather than sending your entire easel to the landfill, we will replace the whiteboard for a reduced price. This reduces the amount of waste created by a great deal.

Design

This easel is made of bamboo, which pulls carbon from the atmosphere as it grows. But wood also pulls carbon - so why did we pick bamboo specifically? There are two main reasons. Firstly, bamboo does not die after it is harvested, unlike trees, it grows back from its stump. Secondly, bamboo is extremely fast growing. It can grow up to a full meter in a single day! Both these factors make it more renewable than any wood - and especially more renewable than steel or plastic.

Sometimes we need to use plastic though. Luckily, our polypropylene tubs are made with 25% recycled polypropylene. That's 25% less plastic going to the landfill and 25% less new plastic being created.

For every bamboo product purchased, we will make a donation to conserve natural panda habitat through the World Wildlife Fund.

Plastic packaging is a global environmental issue. That is why we are working on removing all plastic from our packaging. Check back in with us soon to see our removal journey unfold.

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.
