Posted October 03, 2018 08:15:00 In 2016, the company Blind Frog Ranch opened its doors in South Africa to sell bamboo blindeners, and now the company is taking off with the launch of its latest line of products.
The company announced today that it had sold a total of 1.5 million bamboo blindgers to date, bringing its total number of sales to over 7 million, and the company has more than tripled the number of its products in its three-year history.
Blind Frog CEO Dr. Nana Kiberel said in a press release that “the launch of our bamboo blindener line has brought us into the spotlight, and with its popularity comes excitement.”
Kibelel said that while the company’s products are currently marketed to consumers in South African and overseas, it is looking to expand into other markets in the future.
Kibel said that bamboo blindners have been an effective alternative to traditional lighting products and are often used as part of home improvement projects.
“In our field, we have to go into situations where there is a very high amount of heat and we need to be able to switch off and on the light, or we don’t want to damage our plants,” she said.
“If we can get the plants to do that and it does not burn us out, then we can turn the lights off and it can go off and go on.
So this bamboo blinding is really an alternative that works well for us.”
The products range from LED lighting to full-size LED bulbs, and they all come in different shapes and sizes.
Kipko Blind, a company that sells LED and LED light bulbs, said that the bamboo blindings are “a great way to light up a space and get the most out of your house.”
Kipka Blind also said that they are working on a “Bamboo Blinder to Go” that would allow for the “use of LED light sources as well as other light sources, including incandescent, LED, and fluorescent light bulbs.”
Kimberel told Business Insider that they also aim to use the products to provide “sustainable” energy to the home and that they have “very positive relationships” with companies that make LED bulbs.
She said that it is a challenge to make products that are sustainable and environmentally friendly, but that they see potential for bamboo blindsticks to be “a very effective alternative” to traditional LED bulbs for indoor lighting.
She added that bamboo lighting is a “very easy thing to do, and we’re working very hard to make it a lot easier.”
Kijana Rana, a senior lecturer in sustainability and climate change at the University of York, told Business News Daily that she is excited to see how the bamboo light bulbs will affect the environment.
“We’ve been doing research on bamboo and the use of bamboo for lighting for over 40 years, and this is really something that is quite new to us,” she told BI.
“I think it’s really important to be aware of the impact that bamboo products will have on the environment and to be mindful of how they are produced, so that we don [have to] be environmentally friendly.”
She added: “It’s important to remember that bamboo is a non-native species that’s grown in very poor conditions, so it will be very difficult for us to produce it.
It will take a very long time to make, and I think that’s the biggest thing with the bamboo products.”
Rana said that “bamboo is also very difficult to use as a source of energy,” because of its size and the fact that it’s a “dense tree.”
“It can be difficult to control because the wood structure is not very symmetrical,” she explained.
“So if you are using it as a light source, it’s very difficult and not easy to use.”
Rannana said the bamboo product line is “very simple, but it can be really useful,” and added that “there’s no doubt that it will have a huge impact on the economy of South Africa.”
Kibi Mokwela, director of the Institute for Sustainable Forestry Research at the National University of South Carolina, told BI that bamboo has a “huge role” in the ecosystem and said that its “natural environment is extremely diverse, and that’s what makes it so important.”
She said, “The bamboo ecosystem is extremely valuable and needs to be preserved.”
She also added that, “it’s very important that we protect it because it’s an important ecosystem, and it’s essential for a very diverse ecosystem.”
She told BI: “Bamboos are very important because they provide a very large part of our water supply.
They’re very important for our water sources and we also use them for cooking and for fertilizing our soil.
It has to be managed in a sustainable way, and you don’t just look at the bamboo as a resource, but
