We are in the world where we cannot think without plastic.In our daily life we are almost dependent on different forms of plastic and it is the matter of thinking.Our organization Global Environment Research Foundation is an autonomous center for studies, training and research in the areas of ecology, environment, pollution monitoring & control, natural resource conservation, solid and liquid waste management, and environment audit and our main focus is to preserve our environment. In the same context there is a programme by our organization wherein we provide mentor ship,guidance and training to people who are in need or poor ones on products made of bamboo fibers and shaw leaves.
We all know that bamboo has been used for many applications, from a food source to a building material. But with the age of modern materials, many people don’t understand the scope of uses for bamboo. The shoots can be picked early for eating, and the wood of older canes can be treated and used as anything from decoration to instruments. A fabulous trend right now is bamboo fibers being used in fabrics and clothing.It is becoming a mainstream trend to have bamboo fabric boxes in chain retail stores.
In GERF, we provide training on the said matter that how to use bamboo to make small boxes and usage of shaw leaves to get products to the people. These two are easily accessible every where and we are using these for generating employment and educating general public to use these bamboo and shaw leaves made box,plates etc to reduce the usage of plastic.
We have collaboration with local market, shops and many schools where our hand made bamboo fiber box and shaw leaves plates are being used.
