Bamboo is a remarkable and highly versatile natural resource.
For many centuries it has been utilised in Asia in a range of uses, including in cooking, construction, transport, textiles and medicine.
It is only relatively recently that the Western world has discovered how bamboo offers a wide range of benefits and an eco-friendly solution to many of our modern requirements.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Once harvested, bamboo can replenish itself within a year, and some species can grow up to 120cm per day! It is a resilient plant, which does not need fertilisers to boost its growth, or pesticides since bamboo is naturally pest-resistant.
Since bamboo requires no chemicals and very little water to grow, it is an environmental wonder-plant. As if this were not enough, bamboo absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than either cotton or timber. It also releases more oxygen into the environment which improves air quality. Bamboo is by far the greener option!
