Earthcycle get their palm husk fibre from oil palm plantations in Malaysia with the cooperation of the  government there.  They are in the news.

Information posted on Friends of Earth about Malaysia is not accurate.  The Malaysian Palm Oil Association (MPOA) is the umbrella body for the private growers of plantation tree crops in Malaysia and it is one of the members of Roundtable on Sustainable Palmoil.  You can see list of members, that includes Earthcycle and WWF-Malaysia, at the following link

WWF-Malaysia has worked on important conservation projects, from saving endangered species such as tigers and turtles, to protecting our highland forests, rivers and seas. WWF-Malaysia currently runs more than 50 projects including: scientific field research, policy work with the government, environmental education, public awareness programmes, working with local communities to improve livelihoods  and protect the environment as well as training and supporting other conservation organisations in Malaysia.

In Malaysia, the company, Ecologico Packaging Sdn Bhd, produces the same packaging under the brand name EcoPak.
