Bamboo releases approximately 30% more oxygen into the air and absorbs more carbon dioxide than other plants, helping to significantly decrease the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere while cleaning the air.
Highly Renewable Resource
Bamboo is a grass from the plant family known as Poacea, and the fastest growing 'wood' plant known, growing up to 36" per day. It reaches full maturity in just 3 to 5 years and simply grows back when cut, very much like a grass.
Despite its almost delicate appearance, bamboo is approximately three times stronger than timber, and its tensile strength ( its ability to withstand more tension or stretching pressure before breaking ) is higher than steel!
Fallen leaves from bamboo decompose and provide all the nutrients the plant needs to thrive, meaning no fertilizers are needed. This eliminates the toxic run-off usually associated with farming and helps keep our rivers and oceans a bit cleaner.
The naturally occurring growth joints in bamboo shoots are transformed into color textures when bamboo is planed into planks, giving the finished wood a visually rich texture and appearance.
