Homemaker with a vision and mission: harness bamboo's sustainability and beauty in a novel way, and reach out and collaborate with others to protect our Blue Planet.

What Inspired You to Make This?

When my son, at age 4, asked me to make wooden toys that didn't exist at that time either online or offline, I started from scratch hand-making wooden toys and furniture out of my imagination; Learning by doing, today I'm able to create some unique wooden crafts that satisfied many children's curiosity very well. Eight years ago, my inquisitive and ingenious mind discovered a novel but practical, and green way to harness the beauty and power of bamboo, and came up with a tiny but effective solution to climate change problems. Now it's time to reach out and share my expertise and findings with more and more people, and it's going to be a great honor to collaborate with others to have a real positive impact on strengthening education and protecting our Blue Planet.
