Oct. 19, 2009

SAN DIEGO – Cali Bamboo, a premier manufacturer of green residential and commercial building materials made entirely from bamboo, recently announced that it made a donation to the nonprofit organizationReverb to provide earth-friendly concert and event productions.

The company’s $8,000 contribution will support Reverb’s work helping artists like Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer green their tours while educating and encouraging fans to take sustainable actions in their everyday lives.

“Reverb is such a unique group that’s dedicated to encouraging musicians and concert goers to take action toward a more environmentally sustainable future,” says Tanner Haigwood, COO of Cali Bamboo. “Because our company produces earth-friendly products, we can relate to Reverb’s message and helping their cause is something we’re excited about!”

As part of its membership with “1% for the Planet,” Cali Bamboo provides one percent of its annual revenues towards environmental groups around the United States, thereby setting an example for the rest of the business community.

“On top of Cali Bamboo’s laudable commitment to nonprofit organizations like ours, their products also demonstrate a commitment to the environment, which is something we really value in a partner,” says Adam Gardner, co-founder of Reverb and guitarist/ vocalist for the band Guster.
