The Project
The objective of Praia do Forte Bamboo is to provide options and enhance businesses opportunities which meets the economic, environmental, social, and cultural needs and in this way can make hopefully a big contribution to a more environmental healthy path of Bahia, the Northeast and finally hopefully to all of Brazil. In Brazil, where bamboo currently plays an insignificant role, bamboo has the potential to fill a niche in a still untapped market for making furniture, growing plantations, for housing and construction and for supplying the food-market. Furthermore, the potential increase in the cost of traditional wood is already leading consumers to demand viable alternatives for forest products. And public awareness of the Amazonian forest destruction and degradation is rising and the public will understand that bamboo help to secure forest resources and therefore will not contribute to this forest destruction.
