Tucked away in China's southern Guangdong Province, lies Xuwen County, a landscape speckled with pineapple plantations under the warm embrace of the sun. Dubbed the "Gateway to the South China Sea," this tropical paradise is where PinoGreen's ingenious eco-textiles story unfolds, turning humble agricultural waste into game-changing textiles and vegan leather.


In Climate We Trust

The climate of Xuwen County basks in a delightful cocktail of tropical monsoon and marine features, tailored exquisitely for the cultivation of pineapples. Temperatures, ever so warm averaging around 23 degrees Celsius, coupled with generous rainfall, generate a perennial tropical backdrop conducive for pineapples to flourish. Abundant sunlight ensures the all-year-round ripening of these sweet fruits, the leaves of which become the beating heart of PinoGreen’s eco-textiles and vegan leather revolution.


Xuwen's Soil: The Silent Nurturer

The fertile, well-drained, red sandy loam soil of Xuwen, pulsating with organic matter and nutrients, is the unsung hero behind the prosperous growth of pineapple plants. This life-sustaining earth bestows upon the pineapples a rich flavor distinct to Xuwen, the leaves of which are the DNA in PinoGreen's sustainable eco-materials blueprint.


Agricultural Tapestry and the Rhythm of Local Economy

In Xuwen, agriculture is not merely an occupation, but the rhythm that orchestrates life. Endless pineapple fields make it the reigning champion of pineapple production in China. But the agro-diversity doesn't end there. Bananas, mulberries, and sugar cane fields punctuate the pineapple-dominated green canvas of Xuwen.

Further enriching this agricultural tapestry is the thriving silkworm industry, sustained by the prevalent mulberry trees. This intricate interdependence of crops and creatures forms a resilient ecological web, fostering sustainable farming and facilitating the production of PinoGreen’s eco-materials.


Harnessing the Elements: Wind and Solar Energy in Xuwen

Adding to Xuwen's sustainability profile is its significant investment in renewable energy, particularly wind and solar power. Blessed with a coastal location, the region harnesses the potent sea breezes to drive wind turbines. In tandem, abundant sunlight allows for the generation of solar energy. Together, these green energy sources reduce Xuwen's carbon footprint, fuel local industries, and provide the electricity to turn PinoGreen’s waste pineapple leaves into vegan leather, thus weaving an even richer tapestry of sustainability in this pineapple kingdom.


Culinary Artistry in Xuwen: A Tapestry of Taste

Xuwen’s bountiful harvest and its location by the sea conspire to create a rich culinary narrative. Indigenous produce such as pineapples, bananas, and sugar cane take center stage in traditional recipes, mirroring Xuwen's agricultural vitality in every dish.
