circle12 commented on ECO-FRIENDLY BAMBOO GRASS AS A WOOD SUBSTITUTE

Thanks. I happen to be on the funding aspect of the project. Can we share notes on the budgets?

So far my assesment has been on the profit angle from sales of bamboo poles. The nurseries of the bamboo trees are locally available and willing to provide (on credit) the bamboo in exchange for progressive payment. How were you planning to source the plants?

Ryan Johnson tell me more. I visited the site. Not much information on bamboo projects. Would like to know how we can collaborate.

Kate Rushton I am currently working at delivering innovative and environmentally sustainable, high-quality wooden floorboards of bamboo for local and global export. I aim to involve the local community by encouraging farmers to plant more bamboo, train and develop them to craft bamboo products and create a reliable export avenue for the finished products. My goal is to bridge poverty and planet by improving the livelihood of farmers and reducing the reliance of farmers on wood.

Bamboo provides an alternative raw resource to wood currently sourced from the harvesting of natural forests, reducing deforestation. Our multi faceted solution begins with the conversion of idle and marginalized land into productive bamboo ecosystems that provide a long term and sustainable source of bamboo poles.
