Why to talk of the Centre of Ecole Française d’Extrême Orient (EFEO) on our blog?
Because the whole structure and the roof of the Centre of EFEO were renovated by Chalet & Bamboo Co., Ltd.
The work has been finished last July, just before the inauguration.We are proud to have contributed to this project.

Bamboo and High-Tech ! Bamboo Computer

Every little bit counts and if saving the planet is one of your passions then you might wish to consider these Bamboo LCD monitors.
Bamboo is a renewable resource and instead of your computer casings being made in plastic stuff that will last a thousand years (and then some) past its usefulness, at least a tiny part of the monitor will be recyclable and you’ll feel warm and fuzzy knowing you’re doing your bit for the planet and besides, what a great way to show what a caring individual you are.
