ABOUT 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!

FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE AND DEFORESTATION

Bamboo release 35% more oxygen than trees and absorb carbon dioxide. The 250 bamboos planted so far eliminates 200 METRICS TONNES OF CO2 and is also a way to slow deforestation. Fast growing bamboo can help quickly replenish a forest stripped of timber.

SUPPORT RURAL COMMUNITIES

The initiative support a dozen of rural families by providing them with an income for their families and educations of their children. 

On the hectare dedicated to the GBI, the communities will plant and attend to the bamboo until it is ready to be harvested.

PRODUCE ECO FRIENDLY ITEMS

After 3 - 4 years, the bamboo will be harvested and sold locally or will be woven and crafted into daily practical items that are eco-friendly and can serve as a replacement for plastic and other non eco friendly materials.
