Why is Bamboo Green?
- Bamboo is sustainable. Bamboo is arguably the most renewable resource on our planet. It has an extensive rooting system and needs little water, growing 4–6 new shoots per year. It is, in fact, considered to be the fastest growing plant in the world; it has been clocked surging skyward as fast as 121 cm(47.6 inches) in a 24 hour period, and can also reach maximal growth rate exceeding one meter (39 inches) per hour for short periods of time.
- Bamboo is eco-friendly. Bamboo absorbs nearly 5 times the amount of greenhouse gases and produces 35% more oxygen than the same amount of trees. It is critical in the fight to end global warming. Bamboo is rain-fed only and helps to reduce soil erosion. It is a grass, so it regenerates without the need for replanting.
- Bamboo is 100% biodegradable. Bamboo fiber comes from nature and it returns entirely to nature in the end.
- Products that use bamboo reduce deforestation and also reduce the need for harmful chemical processes that are needed for the manufacture of different metals.
