Let’s break it down for a second: a mature tree, used for lumber and other building materials can take many DECADES to reach maturity. Then, once ready, loggers will come in and clear cut a massive swath of forest in one fell swoop. This obviously destroys the ecosystem where they once stood.
Here’s why we KNOW bamboo is our future, and why ALL OF OUR PRODUCTS are made from high-quality, eco-friendly bamboo:
BAMBOO CAN REACH MATURITY IN AS FEW AS 90 DAYS
There is one particular species of bamboo that can grow 1.5 inches per hour.
BAMBOO IS “GREEN STEEL”
The strength of bamboo is remarkable. Entire houses are now being constructed of bamboo. It has a greater tensile strength than steel, and is 3 TIMES STRONGER than timber.
BAMBOO IS NATURALLY HYGIENIC
There is a compound in bamboo fiber called “bamboo kun” that naturally repels bacteria. Let’s face it: these days, we could all use a little peace of mind in that department.
BAMBOO IS AMAZING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Bamboo has the capacity to absorb TWICE the amount of carbon dioxide of trees. It also produces a MASSIVE amount of oxygen—about 30% more than trees and other plants. It grows back fast, and has solid roots that prevent soil erosion. Bamboo can be used to quickly restore a deforested area to its former natural glory.
