Sustainable bamboo headphones

Plastic waste is a serious concern today which is generated by all kinds of industries. In electronics, plastic is a widely used material. This product is more sustainable than the regular plastic headphone body as more than 70% of the material used in the body is environment-friendly or recyclable. This product can be built by using any bamboo species, with existing bamboo handling & craft techniques. This contributes to a greener future and adds a contemporary yet Indian visual to the product. This headphone celebrates Bamboo craftsmanship, holds the potential to be mass manufactured, and give a new design direction to electronic products.
