In Ghana, there is an abundance of bamboo. So much so, that one company devised an unusual means of transportation: bamboo bikes. Crafting bamboo into bike frames, Boomers has made thousands of the sustainable bikes. Once finished, the bikes are said to be stronger and lighter than even steel. But there is much more to the company that just bikes. Boomers trains young people in rural communities and provides them with employment. With this enterprise, they are hoping to inspire others to get creative and to help their communities.
