It started as a dream. 

Floating in and out of our consciousness. 

Whispering its promise. 

Unclear yet somehow familiar.

Then we road our first bamboo bikes and were swept away. 

The lightness, the calm, the quiet, the brilliance of it. 

It was more than a bike, it was a vision of the future. 

A future built based upon true respect for the earth and its inhabitants.

  • We will strive to reduce the ecological and economic cost of mobility and transportation.
  • We will pursue the principles of an E-CORP (Earth Corporation).
  • We will serve you and the Earth with honesty, transparency and kindness.
  • We will never give up.
  • We will start with a simple bamboo bike and see where it leads us.

And with that we now make our promise to you…

E-CORPS 

We work hard for constant and never-ending innovation and improvement, operating within the values of e-corp philosophy.

EARTH

The enterprise is owned in trust by the Earth.

THE EARTH IS OWNING THE BUSINESS

We are registering EWABI in Indonesia as required by current law and are creating irrevocable clauses in the by-laws to make the commitments listed above binding.

GREEN BONDS

Green Bonds are used for Startup Funds and Working Capital

Once the business starts generating positive free cash flow the debt is to be paid off.  A board of Trustees is overseeing that the business follows the Earth Corporation charter and establish for how the “earth equity” is to be used.

WORKERS

Profits are Shared with Employees up to 20%

VALUE OF THE WORK GOING BACK TO THE RIGHT HANDS

Profits are Shared with Employees up to 20%.

Their work is directly valued by the buyer

NET POSITIVE RESOURCE USE

Generate more of any particular resource than you use.

GENERATING MORE

EWABI is already generating more electricity each day than it uses. It will aim to grow more bamboo than it harvests. It will aim to collect more rain water than it uses..

ZERO TO LANDFILL

No waste

NO WASTE

The goal is to have nothing going to the landfill.  Everything that would be traditionally considered “waste” is somehow turned into an input for something else.

WAGE

Minimum Wage Plus & Defined Maximum Wage

SMALL GAP

With EWABI we have defined Minimum Wage Plus as 50% above the local minimum wage and the Defined Maximum wage is ten times the lowest wage.  

TRANSPARENCY

All of the EWABI working documents are publically available in Google Drive.

It is a work-in-progress : jumbled, incomplete and hardly ready for public exposure. We’ve decided that it is more important to share quickly and fully rather than worry about whether or not everything is in perfect order.  

OPEN BOOKS

An E-CORP publicly publishes its financials.

OPEN BOOKS

While EWABI is just getting ready to produce its first financial statements, the startup expense ledgers are already publicly available.
