I believe that knowledge is power in decision-making, so when I founded My Bamboo Story, I thought I needed to know if and who I would impact with my new venture. I started to investigate which animals were living on Bamboo leaves and sprouts. And am super happy to share my findings with you: of course, the most famous animal is the big Panda bear that lives in Southwest China, but then searching a bit more, I discovered that also the Red Panda, the Elephants in Africa, the Mountain Gorilla in Congo, the Chimpanzee in Africa, the Bamboo Lemur in Madagascar, the Golden Monkey in Africa and last but not least the Bamboo rat that has a presence in South Eastern Asia share an appetite for the Bamboo leaves. Bamboo sprouts are also eatable by humans. I am sharing my finding because when we talk or act about sustainability, we also need to understand what and who we impact with our actions and who can benefit from or be damaged by our far-away decisions. Our fantastic eight animals are in danger, like most of the wildlife, but is not the lack of Bamboo food that is putting them at risk. The most significant threats come from poaching and the deforestation of the Congo forest, but not the absence of leaves or sprouts. One of the reasons why I choose to work with Bamboo is because its generous fast growth always creates new opportunities for the communities that live on it. While working on adding a new collection to My Bamboo Story, I thought of making a collection just for our furriest friends so they could also contribute to the planet's greater good. The Animal world collection is in its infancy, just created, and I am looking forward to receiving your feedback about the products' quality and what other bamboo products you would like added to the collection for you to buy. Let's all contribute to a better planet if we can; even small changes can bring significant impact.
