Fast Facts About Bamboo

  • Bamboo is a grass belonging to the perennial evergreen family.
  • There are over 1200 different varieties of bamboo growing on our planet.
  • It is naturally anti-microbial and anti-fungal in its raw state and among the most abundant plant resources on earth.
  • Bamboo makes ecological sense as it is one of nature's most sustainable resources.
  • It doesn’t require pesticides, herbicides or irrigation to grow; rather thriving in its natural environment.
  • Growing at a rapid rate, it continually sends up new shoots and is harvested without the need for replanting.
  • Our Moso bamboo has been measured surging upward as fast as 35 inches in a 24-hour period and matures in 3-5 years. Commercial tree species need 25-70 years!
  • Bamboo grows well on hill slopes where nothing else is viable and its root system stabilizes the soil, prevents soil erosion and improves the soil by removing excess nitrogen.
  • Bamboo is great for the environment, as it removes 40-50% more CO2 from the atmosphere than a tree and produces over 30% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
  • Growing and using more bamboo plants, can perhaps help combat global warming.
  • Bamboo offers an opportunity to stop the destruction of our forests, as it is selectively harvested without destroying the grove or stand.
  • Additionally, bamboo has the ability to rapidly soak up excess nutrients contained in wastewater. This has captured the attention of environmental and manufacturing engineers as an environmentally safe and reliable way to deal with waste issues.
  • Bamboo retains an abundance of water, helping to reduce runoff, protect riverbanks and reduce water pollution (due to its high nitrogen consumption).
