Bamboo is truly a wonder plant. It is a symbol of strength, flexibility, and sustainability. For many reasons bamboo, is often called ‘the world’s most renewable material’. It can grow up to one meter a day. This fast grower absorbs five times more carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than trees.
To bloom like this, bamboo requires no pesticides or fertilizers, and little water. When bamboo is harvested, the plant regenerates itself in no time thanks to its incredible root system. These root systems also prevent erosion and nourish the soil with potassium and other nutrients.
This renewable “Super Hero” remains impressive when crafted into products. Its strength makes it the first choice to create scaffold in Asia. Bamboo has also natural anti-bacterial properties, which makes it an excellent choice for cutlery or straws.
Improved techniques make it possible to create textiles from bamboo. Bamboo fiber is extremely soft, and light weighted and is a more sustainable alternative to cotton.
There are many applications where bamboo is a more sustainable substitute, this is why at Bambaw we love bamboo!
