Keeping Bamboo Strong

WBO: Keeping Bamboo Strong.

The World Bamboo Organization is a diverse group consisting of individual people, commercial businesses, non-profit associations, institutions, and allied trade corporations that all share a common interest = BAMBOO. The purpose of the WBO is to improve and promote this common interest, as well as the conditions affecting, and the industry surrounding, this common interest. We are dedicated to promoting the use of bamboo and bamboo products for the sake of the environment and economy.

Thank you, Luke, Teagan and Alex & the Hillsborough High School!

The Hillsborough Bamboo Project was initiated by three students from Hillsborough High School in New Jersey. As part of their World History Honors class, these kids researched the versatility of bamboo to discover its inherent sustainability. They promoted bamboo to their community and raised over $500, which they generously donated to WBO.
