What is Bamboo?
Bamboo is a hollow, evergreen perennial plant, and is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, with some species having the ability to grow 91cm within a 24-hour period, at a rate of almost 4 cm an hour. Bamboo is an extremely sustainable plant, relatively light and renewable, since it grows so swiftly. It doesn’t require any pesticides and grows fast naturally within warm environments. Minimizing the use of chemicals within our production process. This useful plant is used for furniture, buildings, textiles, and even as a food source. Bamboo is now assisting to create a better environment by replacing disposable paper cups through the creation of bamboo cups, which will help reduce paper and plastic waste to the environment.

Bamboo is a renewable resource which can have positive impacts on the environment. Bamboo plants are able to absorb greenhouse gases and reduce carbon dioxide by 35% while releasing more oxygen into the atmosphere. It also helps in reducing water pollution through its absorption of nitrogen compounds. Adding to its usefulness as a renewable energy source.
Furthermore, bamboo’s rapid rate of growth means that it only takes a few years to cultivate an entire forest of usable materials. Its growth requires little structural support and the lack of chemicals involved makes bamboo a very low-cost material to grow.
