Bamboo Bikes in the Philippines
On one of our recent trips, we had the pleasure to meet the bikes of Bambike.com. Bambike is a socio-ecological enterprise based in the Philippines that hand-makes bamboo bicycles with fair-trade labor and sustainable building practices. Some of their bikes are almost completely made of Bamboo, while others have a bamboo look and feel, but are mostly built of traditional materials.
The bikes themselves appear to have a pretty high quality. They are easy to ride, are made of durable materials, and, above all, are all unique! Every ride with the bamboo bikes supports the fight against poverty, and gives people who need it the most another chance to develop themselves. So, the next time you are in Manila, be sure to embark on one of the Eco trips provided in the city, which are by far the best way to escape the crazy Manila traffic!
