Building a Thriving Bamboo Project
Mr. Pecci reveals that the journey of OnlyMoso in Italy began in 2014, preceded by four years of meticulous planning. The company commenced its first plantation in September 2015 and dedicated the initial years to perfecting the agronomic aspects. The results have been remarkable, with the plantations flourishing and turning into stunning bamboo groves.
Specializing in Unique Bamboo Species
OnlyMoso prides itself on specializing in two main bamboo species. While they primarily focused on a specific species, they recently expanded their repertoire by cultivating a shorter bamboo variant. This particular species is ideal for urban settings, gardens, rooftops, and landscapes. Notably, it possesses an incredible capacity to absorb carbon dioxide through its rhizomes, ensuring a perennially green and clean environment.
Bamboo’s Role in Agriculture
Climate change poses significant challenges for industries like winemaking and olive cultivation, especially with extreme weather patterns and water-related issues. Mr. Pecci sees bamboo as a strategic solution for European agriculture. Bamboo’s unique ability to handle water scarcity has caught the attention of farmers. By conducting natural water tests, where bamboo thrives with minimal water requirements during the initial stages of plantation, OnlyMoso aims to revolutionize agriculture in Europe.
Italy: A Home Business and Environmental Advantages
Italy holds a special place for OnlyMoso, as it was the birthplace of their vision. Mr. Pecci explains that the company strives to create a thriving business in Italy, contributing to the local economy while emphasizing environmental sustainability. The versatility of bamboo products further supports this goal, offering numerous possibilities for sustainable creations.
Supporting Farmers and Carbon Credit Initiatives
Acknowledging the initial challenges faced by farmers during the first few years of bamboo plantation, OnlyMoso has implemented programs to support them. To ensure financial stability during the bamboo’s initial growth phase, the company is actively involved in carbon credit initiatives. Through Bamboo Pro, a subsidiary within their group, they create certificates to sell to companies emitting CO2, allowing them to offset their emissions and support farmers in the early stages.
Partnering with Farmers for Successful Plantations
OnlyMoso takes a hands-on approach when assisting farmers. Their team of engineers and consultants collaborate closely with farmers to ensure a smooth and successful plantation process. From providing expert guidance to implementing proper protocols, OnlyMoso ensures that farmers experience minimal challenges. Additionally, they assist in connecting farmers with potential buyers, acting as brokers to facilitate the transition of bamboo from the farm to various industries.
OnlyMoso: Pioneer in Sustainable Bamboo
Mr. Pecci’s innovative approach and OnlyMoso’s comprehensive group of companies have established them as pioneers in the bamboo industry. They have nurseries dedicated to producing high-quality bamboo plants and trading companies such as CBI. Moreover, their environmental projects, managed by Bamboo PRO, calculate CO2 emissions using university expertise and issue blockchain-based certificates, further enhancing transparency and credibility.
Our conversation with Fabrizio Pecci, the President of OnlyMoso Italy, has shed light on the remarkable journey of the company and its significant contributions to the bamboo industry. Their focus on sustainable agriculture, environmental consciousness, and support for farmers highlight their commitment to creating a greener and more prosperous future.
