Since 2004, Pacific Bamboo Resources (PBR) has offered leadership and served communities, governments and industries — regionally and internationally — to research and pursue practical applications for bamboo resources.
Mission: PBR cultivates economic activities that restore the health of our natural and built environments and, in turn, create resilient, sustainable communities across the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
With an emphasis on critical service, PBR projects focus on training, design, and direct use of innovative bamboo products to support poverty alleviation, refugee and at-risk community health and welfare improvements, and social, economic, and environmental vitality.
Equally important, our programs reflect collaborations with international partners and networks.
To apply bamboo technology towards agriculture programs including bamboo based agricultural tools and implements, bamboo biochar, on-farm structures, fencing, trellises, carts and wagons, etc.
To produce innovative transit designs to address transportation issues to improve rural and urban livelihoods including single person bicycles, cargo solutions and combinations.
To enlist bamboo resources for new innovative healthcare products and technologies, new jobs, and new economic development, like bamboo hand washing stations, toilets, braces, crutches and medical disposables.
As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, our mission and interdisciplinary activities align with efforts to address issues of global climate change, sustainable economic development, and community resilience.
