Bainbridge Island, WA, Sept. 14, 2012 -- Bamboo firm Teragren will be featured in September and October on the television show The Environmental Report hosted by former NFL Quarterback Terry Bradshaw.
The show airs nationwide on cable networks such as CNN Headline News and Fox Business Network.
In program, Bradshaw introduces viewers to innovative companies and products that provide environmentally conscious alternatives for consumers.
The primary goal of the show is to spotlight those who are championing conservation efforts and to educate the public on protecting the environment.
The news segment takes viewers to Zhejiang Province, China to see up close the bamboo forests of Anji where Teragren bamboo is grown – the same forests where Feature Film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” was filmed.
The segment shows how Teragren bamboo is harvested by hand to protect the fragile root systems of surrounding plants. Viewers are taken inside Teragren’s factory and shown how the round bamboo culm is milled and manufactured into flat bamboo flooring and building products.
“We believe we can make superior products whose use will make the world a better place – leaving more resources for our children, and our children’s children” said Boshart.
