Bamboo Taxis Hit the Streets of the Philipines

Rustico Balderian, mayor of Tabontabon in the Philippines rolled out two amazing taxis crafted from bamboo as a result of looking for a low-cost, fuel-efficient, safe, and environmentally friendly alternative to motorcycles. These are made from 90% bamboo that are powered by coconut biodiesel.

The vehicles are called the Eco 1 and Eco 2. The Eco 1 seats 20 people and can run on one gallon of biodiesel for about 80 hours. Eco 2 works just as well, but seats around 8. Both vehicles are made by Tabontabon’s out-of-school youth, 90% of each vehicle is made out of bamboo, and they are covered in traditional Filipino woven mats called banig.via
