operation planet basket: strong log baskets

We work with indigenous Dayak communities and other marginalised farmers living in and around the rainforests of Indonesia who for centuries have used the strength of rattan to fashion wicker baskets made to last in an extreme environment. Operation Planet Basket is a small but essential part of the the Katingan Project one of the largest rainforest restoration initiatives in the world. By working directly with the people who live in the area and helping them maximise their rattan resources we are making sure our baskets don’t cost the earth..

Operation PLANET BASKET a small but critical part of the Katingan Project, an important rainforest ERC , Eco System Restoration Concession. We aim to add value to the local rattan industry and in doing so create vital revenue for people who would otherwise have little or no alternative to illegal logging, clearing forest with fires for palm oil cultivation or poaching endangered species including orangutan, pangolin, cloud leopards and orchids.

KATINGAN PROJECT

The Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project (the Katingan Project) is based on the premise that we can still save large areas of peat swamp forest in Indonesian Borneo, offer local people sustainable sources of income, tackle global climate change—and base this on a solid business model. This is a no-nonsense, transparent and result-oriented approach to land-use and conservation in a part of the world where this is needed most.
