The Ghana Bamboo Bike Initiative is owned by Bernice Dapaah from Ghana, whose company makes custom bikes out of bamboo. Its definitely not the first person to do it but its now a new trend in Ghana. Each bike is hand made from one of the workers who also paints the bike with different designs to make it attractive. It is eco friendly using the bamboo and is a very strong wood to use for such a creative idea. Through her initiative program Dapaah donates bikes to the local community as well as sells them, while employing more than 35 people from the community. The entire bike frame is recyclable in which makes the whole concept eco friendly. Please take a look at the video below.
