Mango Wood is a sustainable and eco-friendly material. Mango farming is a big business in India. Mango trees grow quickly but stop producing fruit after 8-10 years, when they must be cut and replanted. Rather than discarding the wood and letting it rot (which releases CO2 into the air), farmers can sell the wood to make these beautiful boxes and incense burners. This gives their local community extra revenue and reduces harvesting of other wild woods.
