Bamboa actively promotes the use of the most sustainably resourced bamboo by designing attractive, high quality and practical home and lifestyle products that are made in the homes and small businesses of rural communities across Asia. All of their products are made on a fair-wage basis as a stable source of income, thus helping to alleviate poverty in less-fortunate regions.
They believe that beautiful and durable household products should not come at the environment’s expense. As we head into a future of scarcer resources and limited energy, it is their goal and their passion to rediscover bamboo's beauty and qualities and for it to replace materials such as hardwoods, stainless steel, plastics and concrete, bringing sustainably produced into people’s homes, refining their lifestyle choices.
Each of their products is designed with the highest environmental and social standards, with the quality of the products being directly under their control. They are committed to going beyond actively reducing the need/use of single-use plastic to returning to the source to produce responsibly and sustainably bamboo products as a long-term solution.
ANOTHER REASON WHY WE LOVE BAMBOA
THE GROW BAMBOO INITIATIVE BY BAMBOA
Founded in September 2020 by Julia Washbourne (CEO of Bamboa) and co-founder Dr Shyam Paudel (Forest and climate specialist), The Grow Bamboo Initiative has one main mission:
PROMOTE BAMBOO PLANTATION GLOBALLY TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE AND EMPOWER LOCAL COMMUNITIES AND ECONOMY.
The initiative has started by creating the first community bamboo plantation project in Kavre District, Nepal by supporting a dozen of local families from Dhaneshowri village. One hectare of 250 bamboos has been planted so far. We need your support now more than ever!
