SAN DIEGO Ė September 20, 2011 Cali Bamboo, a premier manufacturer of green building materials for residential and commercial projects made primarily from bamboo, announced today it donated $50,000 to the Surfrider Foundation at the Celebrity Expression Session earlier this month.
The company vowed to donate $500 for every celebrity wave caught at the 6th Annual event in Malibu, Calif. which was attended by various celebrities from film, music and television.
“We had a great time at this year’s event and it was exciting to see all the celebrity surfer’s join together to raise money for a good cause,” says Jeff Goldberg, CEO and President of Cali Bamboo. “Our $50,000 contribution will go toward Surfrider’s Ocean Friendly Garden’s campaign and will support their basic educational classes, hands on workshops and Garden Assistance Program for chapters across the U.S.”

“Urban runoff is a number one source of ocean pollution no matter where someone lives. Our Ocean Friendly Gardens campaign raises awareness of those issues and it means so much to have Cali Bamboo’s support as we work to protect our oceans, waves and beaches,” said Matt McClain, Surfrider Foundation’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “Their contribution was very much appreciated and something that all of our chapters will benefit from.”
As part of its membership with 1% for the Planet, Cali Bamboo provides one percent of its annual net revenues towards environmental groups around the United States, thereby setting an example for the rest of the business community.
