Our Story

Cambium's story began where my life did, in rural New Mexico. A childhood immersed in woodworking and science instilled in me a deep understanding of sustainable wood use and climate action. I spent considerable time learning the extent of the challenges posed by wood waste mismanagement.

Green Routes, Universal Influence

One day in 2019, while observing imported firewood at a local store, the idea for Cambium was born. We immediately began building a reimagined supply chain to transform local wood waste into viable resources, reduce wasteful consumption and help regenerate urban economies. Our business is more than just a venture; it's a personal mission, deeply rooted in my history and our collective commitment to fight climate change.

Our Impact

46 Mt

To recycle 46 million tons of discarded material, it would require enough energy to power a small city for several years, emphasizing the importance of sustainable practices.
