FUN FACTS 1

BAMBOO IS GRASS NOT TREE!

  • Bamboo is an incredibly renewable and sustainable crop. Despite the fact that some plants can grow as tall as the tallest trees, bamboo isn’t actually a tree. It is, in fact, a grass, and one of the most persistent and versatile grasses on the planet.
  • The crop requires very little water (1/3 lesser water than cotton) and doesn’t need to be sprayed with pesticides or fertilizers to grow. Plus, bamboo releases 35% more oxygen into the air compared to trees of the same size.
  • Bamboo grows on every continent except Antarctica.

WHY IS BAMBOO A SUSTAINABLE MATERIAL?

  • Bamboo is sustainable for several reasons. First, it’s darn easy to grow. Bamboo farmers need not do much to ensure a bumper crop. Bamboo is also one of the fastest growing plants on the planet which is where its sustainability claims come from.
  • When bamboo is harvested, it regrows naturally from its own root system and will continue to grow with no additional planting or cultivation. This means no excess tilling and no soil erosion. This all translates into a fair degree of soil conservation, which aids in water absorption and all-around stability wherever bamboo groves flourish. Bamboo improves, rather than depletes soil quality.
