ZIMBÜ SUPPORTS THE NATIVE CRAFTS OF THAILAND
Our mission is to provide sustainable solutions. Renewable alternatives for plastic, steel or paper, drinking straws, cutlery and home wares.
In developing Zimbu, we have opened a meaningful worthwhile co-operative that provides opportunities and benefits for a small north eastern Thai village and the surrounding communities.
Offering well paid purpose filled work in a safe and healthy workplace with growing assistance to community projects that support the villagers day to day.
We have structured our company to grow as fast as a shoot of bamboo, so that we can facilitate the many wonderful applications of this multi-faceted natural product.
Creating and ensuring long term work environments for the villagers, and providing an internationally positive impact.
