Brian and Leila have a vision to move to Hawaii and spread Aloha. As they look around and notice how much Mother Earth has provided, they want nothing more than to live in a world prosperous in ecological growth. It is their mission to not only help those currently on earth, but the generations ahead to live green.
The idea of a bamboo phone case stemmed when Leila was walking through a mall and saw a kiosk full of wooden carved phone cases. Instead of admiring the carvings, she felt saddened thinking about the trees that had to be cut down. An idea emerged to keep the beautifully carved phone cases using sustainable bamboo. With a vision and a plan in hand, Brian and Leila’s only goal is to keep our earth as healthy and lively as possible.
After doing research, Brian and Leila found out that bamboo yields 20 times more timber than trees and grows in abundance without harming the earths eco system. Not only does bamboo grow fast and without harm, but it is also one of the most durable types of ‘wood’ out there. Bamboo is also:
- The strongest-growing woody plant on earth, bamboo isn’t a tree but a grass.
- Bamboo fiber is 2-3 times stronger than timber.
- Bamboo is the fastest developing plant on the planet.
- The average height of bamboo is 100 times its diameter.
- It can grow over 70 mm every day.
- Its plants reduce up to 35% more carbon dioxide in the climate and deliver more oxygen than trees.
- Bamboo can be harvested every 3-5 years unlike most woods that take 10-20 years to be harvested without destroying the natural forest.
- Bamboo requires less than 1% of the water needed for trees to grow
