Kizara is the first step in producing popular &
renewable wood products.

Japanese cedar and cypress wood have anti-bacterial
properties that can potentially keep foods fresher compared to traditional
plastic and paper.
Using products made from these sources helps to raise money to
plant more of these beneficial trees; and, in the long term, to produce a more
vibrant forest and a sustainable foresting industry.
