Bamboo is grown without pesticides, chemical fertilizers or irrigation, making it an eco-friendly and sustainable choice over cotton and other plant materials.
It is a very fast growing, renewable and easy-to-grow resource that after being harvested becomes an extremely versatile material with countless uses, including construction, clothes, food, fuel and paper. There are hundreds of species of bamboo that grow in the most diverse climates, as hot and humid as the tropics or as cold as the Great Plains.
However, the most common and fertile place for Bamboo to grow is in Southeast Asia, where it has been growing for millions of years.
This amazing grass grows extremely fast (as much as 35” per day) and without needing the use of pesticides or herbicides. When it is cut, it starts re-growing immediately with most species reaching maturity in only 3 to 5 years.
Deservedly so, Bamboo is being recognized as a sustainable source of raw materials for the pulp and paper industry.
