Date:10/9/2009

SEATTLE, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Booshoot (www.booshoot.com) today announced that its founder Jackie Heinricher has been chosen as the winner of Martha Stewart "Dreamers Into Doers" program - an honor recognizing visionary, entrepreneurial women who have turned their passions into a successful for-profit or non-profit career.

Chosen from thousands of nominees, Heinricher received recognition in the for-profit category for her innovative and groundbreaking work related to bamboo. In addition to receiving a $10,000 prize, Heinricher will be featured on 'The Martha Stewart Show' airing on Friday October 9, 2009 (check local listings). Erin Slater, executive director of Indianapolis-based College Mentors, was the non-profit winner.

This breakthrough instantly transformed the plant from a backyard ornamental to an economic powerhouse with the potential to be grown on a mass scale domestically and the ability to compete worldwide in the pulp, paper, textile and hardwood markets. Today, Booshoot is the largest supplier of bamboo plants worldwide.
