Story Of The Founder
Social Entrepreneur, TED Speaker, Agile Enthusiast, Innovator
Mr Yogesh Shinde,s vision of Bamboo India goes back a long way to his days as an IT professional in Germany. On one of his visits home to India. He came face to face with the harsh reality of farmer suicides in our country. The incident proved to be cataclysmic. The general notion of farmers as living peaceful pastoral lives was shattered. On his return to Germany, he met farmers who were prosperous, technologically advanced, and secured for the future by their sustainable practises.
So why don't farmers in India enjoy the same level of career growth and Insurance? In the face of growing climate change, inappropriate land use, competition from products in the global market, and inadequate funds and guidance to practice sustainable methods, our farmers are unable to survive. One primary difference he found between farmers of the west and in India was that Indian farmers were struggling to grow crops that were not indigenous to the land. This practice went against the grain of sustainability. Mr Yogesh gave up his IT career to research on the possibilities of starting an environmentally safe and sustainable business in India. The versatility of bamboo as a raw material has always been widely know but is not explored in our modern day because of easy plastic alternatives found in the market. Innovative and functional bamboo products could replace their harmful plastic counterparts. Bamboo India germinated from this research-backed ides.
When you purchase and enjoy the Bamboo India products, you become an integral part of an innovative program of social change. Successfully running their own businesses gives the artisans in rural India the opportunity to forge a new, better future for themselves, their families and even their communities. We are proud to offer you a collection of unique yet versatile, beautiful, traditional & innovative handcrafted products
