SAN DIEGO, CA, Sept. 30, 2009 -- Cali Bamboo, a premier manufacturer of green residential and commercial building materials made entirely from bamboo, announced today its $14,000 contribution to San Diego Coastkeeper to support their Watershed Monitoring Program.
The donation will help the non-profit organization enhance the physical condition of San Diego's beaches, bays, watersheds and oceans as well as provide valuable public health benefits to residents and visitors.
"Not only is it our mission to do our part as a company to protect the environment, but a lot of our staff enjoy spending time at the beach; so contributing to a program that aims to improve our local waters was important to us," said Jeff Goldberg, CEO of Cali Bamboo. "As we continue to provide products made from renewable resources, we applaud organizations like San Diego Coastkeeper that are helping to create a healthier planet as well."
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.
