Meet Ghana's Eco-Friendly Bamboo Bikes

Meet the Ghanaian Bernice Dapaah, who's building bikes out of bamboo.

After going to college, Bernice decided she wanted to bring a new and environmentally friendly way of transport to the market: The Bamboo Bike. The young woman started the Ghana Bamboo Bikes Initiative in her hometown Kumasi, Ghana. The bikes Bernice produces are organic, sustainable, non-polluting and recyclable.

Not only the environment profits from Bernice's Bamboo bike. Thanks to her initiative she created employment opportunities for many skilled and unskilled youth and women.
