Africa will have bikes made from sustainable bamboo
The Bamboo Bike Project that started in Africa, began with the only aim to reduce the cost of production and use of materials while making a bike. The project propagates building the bike using sustainable materials, such as bamboo. A collective of designers and engineers from the Columbia University thought of growing the materials used to make the bike frame out of native bamboo and teach these skills to local communities. Thus, employment opportunities can also be made this way. I think it is a very good move, which can not only use natural materials to build the bike but can also provide good employment opportunities in rural Africa.
