Amazing Woman Quits Job And Follows Her Dream Of Building Sustainable Bamboo Houses
Amazing woman quits job and follows her dream of building sustainable bamboo houses and suddenly makes us all feel like we could do more with our lives.
Elora Hardy had a successful career in NY’s fashion scene but she decided to let it all go in order to pursue her dreams, in order to do something more meaningful with her life, like building amazing bamboo houses in Bali, Indonesia.
Over the past 5 years, Elora and her team have managed to create a real revolution in this domain, by building 100% sustainable homes with bamboo, treated with boron that helps keep insects away in a naturally and eco-friendly way.
“It’s a promise to the kids. It’s one sustainable material that they will not run out of. And when I first saw these structures under construction about six years ago, I just thought, this makes perfect sense…Why hasn’t this happened sooner, and what can we do with it next?”, Elora Hardy explains in her TED Talk.
A lot of you may not know this, but bamboo is an ideal material for constructions, having the compression force of concrete, the strength-to-weight ratio of steel and it’s also one of the fastest growing plants you can find.
