16 Conscious Bamboo-Made Goods

From One-for-One Toothbrushes to Accessible Zambian Bicycles

— January 11, 2013 — Social Good
Conscious bamboo-made goods combine an ethical business model with environment-friendlier materials. Bamboo is a much more versatile material than it may seem. This list ranges from rattles for babies and accessible bamboo bicycles to one-for-one toothbrushes that donate a toothbrush to a child in need.

Architecturally speaking, Dharma-Gili by Alfa Resorts is a hotel located in Bali, Indonesia that creates mini villas throughout the property using something called "composite bamboo timber," which is a sustainable and low-impact alternative.

Get creative with these conscious bamboo-made goods and just maybe you'll come across an opportunity to create a product and socially responsible business of your own using the plant that is known in popular culture as reserved for panda bears.
