Green building products manufacturer to provide materials, funds to build home for local family in need
Cali Bamboo, a premier manufacturer of green building materials made entirely from bamboo for residential and commercial projects, today announced its partnership with the San Diego Habitat for Humanity.
The company will provide $15,000 worth of flooring and fencing materials as well as volunteer employees to help build the final Jimmie Johnson Foundation house in El Cajon as well as other area homes.
“The best part about working with Habitat for Humanity is that we’re actually able to be involved in the construction process and see our products being put towards helping people in need. It’s a truly fulfilling experience and such a remarkable group of people,” said Tanner Haigwood, COO and Vice President of Cali Bamboo. “We’ve always wanted to be in a position where we can help nonprofit organizations both financially and through volunteer efforts, and we couldn’t be more excited about this relationship!”
As part of its membership with “1% of the Planet,” Cali Bamboo earmarks one percent of its annual revenue towards environmental groups around the United States, thereby setting an example for the rest of the business community. The company’s philanthropic gesture will help San Diego Habitat integrate green building techniques into the design and construction of their homes.
“Cali Bamboo provides top-of-the-line products and we’re excited to have the opportunity to use them in our continued efforts to provide affordable housing to San Diego families,” said Bradford Bates, Executive Director for San Diego Habitat for Humanity. “Many people don’t know that bamboo is not only durable, but also sustainable and renewable, which directly helps us in our continued efforts to build environmentally-friendly homes and attain LEED Platinum status on some of our construction projects. It’s exciting to have Cali Bamboo as a partner in helping us achieve our goals.”
