Update #9: Bamboo propagation, toys and 3 million kilos of carbon

Oh boy, so much has happened again, we don’t even know where to start. Henri and Christina are back from their trip to Uganda (yes, the carbon emissions of their flights are compensated by our own program for those of you who wonder ;-)…). Here’s a brief summary of what happened during and shortly after their trip.

First bamboo plants at the propagation station

We have planted the first plants at the propagation station. If you have never heard of propogation, no worries. It simply means that we grow new bamboo plants by using the parent stock. This way, we don’t have to buy bamboo seedlings constantly, keeping these cost as low as possible.

Toys, toys, toys

When Henri and Christina traveled towards Uganda, they stuffed their suitcases to the limit with toys for the children in the Nakasongola district. Nothing gives a better feeling than making those little ones smile!

More than 3 million kilos of carbon

We have reached a milestone! We have passed the border of 3 million kilos of carbon emissions that will be compensated at Bamboo Village Uganda. Thanks to our wonderful friends of Fachjan, who compensated more than 1.5 million kilos we were able to make a giant step with the project. It’s awesome to see that more and more people and companies are joining the project. No matter if you buy 5 square meter of bamboo to compensate your city trip or if you offset the entire carbon footprint of your company, we are so grateful for your support. Together we can fight climate change AND poverty.

That’s it for now! If you have any questions about the project, don’t hesitate to leave your comment or to get in touch!
