BAMBOO is a true wonder plant, in addition to not requiring pesticides or fertiliser to grow,

BAMBOO reaches its mature harvested height in 3 to 5 years (versus 10-20 years for most softwoods).

BAMBOO generates up to 35% more oxygen than hardwood trees, and absorbs four times as much carbon as hardwood.

BAMBOO can detoxify wastewater (due to its high nitrogen consumption) and improve soil quality.

BAMBOO comes from nature and is returned to nature in a smooth natural cycle. It has been grown and husbanded for thousands of years and will continue to be husbanded for many more thousand years without environmental degradation. This is what is meant by complete sustainability.

Very few crops can make this claim.

BAMBOO has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties too.

BAMBOO yarns and textiles are produced without the use of dangerous toxic chemicals and no polluting residues remain in the cloth when it finally wears out and is discarded.

BAMBOO is beautiful to the touch. The fibre is softer than cotton, feels similar to silk or cashmere and has a beautiful sheen.
 
BAMBOO has natural “wicking” properties meaning that it absorbs and evaporates moisture very quickly. 

BAMBOO is anti-bacterial even after 50 washes,

BAMBOO fibre fabric has a 70% elimination rate when incubated with bacteria – this natural anti-bacterial function along with the excellent permeability and evaporation of moisture makes BAMBOO apparel more odour-free, 

BAMBOO is grown without chemicals, the fabric itself is also incredibly smooth and isn't rough or irritable on your skin, great for people with allergies and sensitive skin.

A non-toxic and natural cellulose fibre,
BAMBOO is 100% biodegradable and the decomposition process does not cause any pollution to the environment.
THE ONE PLANT THAT COULD BE DEEMED THE MOST INFLUENTIAL, IMPORTANT PLANT TO HUMAN KIND AND THE ECOSYSTEM

Without a doubt, Bamboo is the one plant that has the widest range of uses and the widest spread of habitats.

Bamboo is a woody perennial evergreen plant that is actually part of the true grass family. Although they can grow to towering heights, bamboo is not actually considered a tree.

Bamboo belongs to the family Poaceae, subfamily Bambusoideae, tribe Bambuseae. Bamboo along with being one of the tallest grasses in the world, is also the fastest growing plant in the world, capable of growing 1M per day!

Bamboo can be found all over the world in varied climates, from the cold mountainous regions to the hot tropical areas.

Bamboo utilizes carbon dioxide at a rate astronomically higher than other trees, and does it year around because it is an evergreen.

Bamboo has the fastest reforestation potential of any plant, making a new canopy in burnt landscapes in a matter of months.

FASCINATING BAMBOO FACTS
Thomas Edison's first successful incandescent lamp (light bulb) used a filament made of carbonized bamboo. It was patented in 1880. This ight bulb still burns today in the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC.

Thomas Edison also used bamboo as rebar for the reinforcement of his swimming pool. To this day, the pool has never leaked.

Alexander Graham Bell used bamboo for the first phonograph needle.

Bamboo survived the atomic bomb at Hiroshima and provided the first re-greening after the blast in 1945.

With a tensile strength superior to mild steel (withstands up to 52,000 pounds of pressure psi) and a weight-to-strength ratio surpassing that of graphite, bamboo is the strongest growing woody plant on earth.

There is a suspension bridge in China 250 yards long, 9 foot wide and rests entirely on bamboo cables fastened over the water. It doesn't have a single nail or piece of iron in it.

Used in ladders, scaffolding and onstruction, bamboo is twice as stable as oak, walnut and teak.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on this planet and provides the best canopy for the greening of degraded lands. (Some species of Bamboo grow as much as 1metre a day).

Its stands release 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees.

Bamboo can also lower light intensity and protects against ultraviolet rays.

Bamboo has thousands of uses including airplane "skins", aphrodisiacs, blinds, brushes, crafts, desalination filters, diesel fuel, fly-fishing poles, flooring, food, furniture, medicine, musical instruments, ornaments, paper, rope, scaffolding, umbrellas, walking sticks, wind chimes and many,
many, more.

Bamboo is harvested and replenished with no impact to the environment. It can be selectively harvested annually and is capable of complete regeneration without need to replant.

Bamboo is an enduring natural resource and provides income, food, and housing to over 2.2 billion people Worldwide.

Bamboo has been around for over 200 million years

Watching the new bamboo shoots emerge in the spring and early summer is a phenomenon unlike any other a gardener is likely to experience. The new shoots emerge from the ground the diameter that the full culm will be, and then grow to their full height in about 60 days. These culms never grow any larger. When conditions are favorable, the bamboo will put up larger shoots, to grow into new and larger culms each spring, until the bamboo reaches its maximum size for the species in those conditions."

Among the earliest historical records, 2nd century B.C. were written on green bamboo strips strung together in a bundle with silk thread.

Instruments made of bamboo create unique resonance.

Bamboos are giant, woody grasses which put out several full length, full diameter, naturally pre-finished, ready-to-use culms ("stems") each year. A single bamboo clump can produce up to 15 kilometres of usable pole (up to 30 cm in diameter) in its lifetime.

The taxonomy of the bamboo remains poorly understood, though the general consensus seems to be that bamboo numbers between 60 and 90 genera with 1,100 to 1,500 species.

Over one billion people in the world live in bamboo houses.

The fastest growing woody plant on this planet. It grows one third faster than the fastest growing tree.
