Sustainable homeware and lifestyle store Bamboa Home has launched the Grow Bamboo Initiative, aiming to support local

communities and economies through planting bamboo. Currently, the initiative is helping families in Nepal’s Kavre District, where one hectare has been filled so far. Bamboo is among the world’s fastest growing plants, a nutritional food source and the rawmaterial for items such as baskets, furniture and chopsticks. For every HK$100 you donate, one bamboo will be planted. Plus, you’ll receive one BOO-Coin, made of 100 percent ethically-sourced bamboo; keep it to use as a coaster, or give it as a holiday gift!
