The biggest reason we started this journey was to support our community by creating as many jobs as possible. To create jobs, we learned how to responsibly develop our own style of sustainable manufacturing with the island's abundant and renewable organic waste.
Since 2014, our full-time staff has grown to 18 people, making us one the top 3 employers on the island. But we're not going to stop here, we are hoping to grow to at least 35 people by 2018 - and replicate our sustainable manufacturing model on other islands throughout the Pacific.
We have spent the last two years crafting our trade, becoming skilled farmers, fiber processors, papermakers, weavers, sewers, artists, designers, printers, and product finishers. We take pride in the consistent quality and attention to detail in our work.
At Green Banana Paper, we are so excited to be the first in the Pacific to prove this "waste to wealth" concept. We hope you'll come to Kosrae someday.
Of course a big thanks to all of our staff for your hard work and dedication. You are the reason we have come this far. Kulo ma lulap nu suwos kewa.
