This Bamboo House Is an Affordable Eco-friendly Substitute for Non-Renewable Material

This is bamboo prefabricated housing constructed of bamboo mat board that is designed on a modular basis and requires minimal labor skills. Developed by Bamboo House India, its goal is to transform rural and tribal communities with bamboo-centered sustainable livelihood opportunities. Currently, more than a million people live in bamboo homes.

Bamboo is an affordable, eco-friendly substitute for non-renewable material such as wood, steel, iron, brick, and plastic, etc. With that said, these bamboo houses built without any other raw materials, have a low-energy consumption. They can also be erected in a short amount of time.



According to Bamboo House India, “bamboo can generate 516.33 million man-days of work every year and can be game-changer for the socio-economically backward areas of our country.” In addition to providing livelihood opportunities to these marginalized communities in the bamboo sector, this business model promotes bamboo entrepreneurship, which also further empowers its people.
