Hi ! I am Shivam, the founder of the ShiBamboo Store, I am a 20 year old guy, just trying to make a effort to reduce plastic pollution in this world.
Every year, about 8.8 million metric tonnes of plastic enter the oceans from land. According to UN Environment, if we continue using plastic like we do now, By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fishes. Plastic is the main cause behind the death of a multitude of endangered species across the oceans and it is the need of the hour to switch to a plastic-free lifestyle.
The idea of this store came to me when i got to know about potential of Bamboo in a conference during my summer internship. Bamboo is an ideal and cheap alternative for the harmful plastic and has so many uses, that it can be easily used in our day to day lifestyles.
Bamboo is the best chance we have of completely eradicating plastic. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and it releases 35% more oxygen than other plants. It is the only material which can eradicate plastic in so many ways like Bamboo toothbrushes for plastic ones, Bamboo Straws for Plastic straws, Bamboo Fibre instead of Polyester( which is a plastic). Like this Bamboo Has around 1000 different uses and they are only growing with people realizing its potential.
The Shibamboo Store was started by me because i thought there was a lack of Bamboo items collected in a single place. I started this store with Rs 10000 i got from my internship and some other savings.. I could have spent it wastefully on clothes or other accessories but i wanted to make an impact.So I started with looking out for vendors who are selling Bamboo related products and contacted them about selling them on our store.
Right now we have few varieties of products available but we are growing and adding more and more quality products made out of Bamboo at the best possible price.Since starting this store from the response is very good, i have got some suppliers to sell on my store and people are liking the products. But as i am not able reach more people, the demand is slowing and its getting difficult for me to maintain the store. I need to put budget into marketing to reach more people and expand the range of products so that awareness and demand increases.
I with this store want to create a platform for the world to buy reusable Bamboo at the lowest possible price. This creates a win-win situation for both me and you as a customers who’s coming to this shop. The store aims to be source where a initiative to protect the environment was taken. Your decision to make a simple lifestyle switch can go a long way in paving the way for a greener future.
