Mama Bamboo are proud to be certified "Carbon Positive" once again by the Bamboo Village - Uganda (BVU).
"Carbon Positive" means we remove more carbon from the atmosphere than we put in.
We have collaborated with BVU again to calculate, reduce and offset our carbon through their ONCRA approved afforestation programme.
This year, we have worked hard to reduce our carbon output even further. We reduced our freighting carbon output by 20% per shipment, through innovative use of freight space, and we reduced our factory carbon output, through a switch to solar power wherever possible.
We calculated our remaining carbon output and partnered with BVU once again, to plant acres of beautiful bamboo forest.
Bamboo Village Uganda is a project with love and respect for both people and the Earth. Born as the brainchild of Dutch entrepreneur Henri Potze and executed by a team of hardworking, caring experts who all have the BUV mission at their hearts.
The BUV have a 3 fold mission; to reverse the devasting effects of climate change, to help build houses for those most in need and to provide meaningful employment in poverty-stricken communities.
