Philipino Taxis Are Made Of Bamboo And Running on Coconut Diesel
In Philipines, recently, two bamboo taxis have been made that run on biofuel coconut diesel. A taxi made of bamboo straps pleases the eye as compared to all metallic bodies. It is an extremely environment-friendly material and unlike the body materials of today, the bamboo doesn’t need a lot of work to be done on it. There are two models currently deployed on the roads named Eco1 and Eco2. Eco1 can accommodate twenty passengers and a gallon coconut diesel lasts for an astonishing eighty hours! Eco2 has an even better mileage stats, but it can carry only eight people in it. Ninety percent of the taxis’ exterior is manufactured from bamboo strips and Tabontabon youth were involved in the making of the cab. The vehicles also have a beautiful collection of local mats around the interior that are called banig.
