Environmental benefits of using Bamboo:
Doesn’t clog landfills like single-use plastic
Bamboo, a grass (not a tree), is among the fastest growing plants in the world. Certain species of bamboo can grow 36in within a 24-hour period.
Bamboo can be profitably cultivated in many degraded lands.
This rapid growth and tolerance for marginal land make bamboo a good candidate for afforestation, carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation, absorbing between 100 and 400 tonnes of carbon per hectare.
Bamboo, like wood, has a high strength-to-weight ratio, thus providing strength to structures.
