Bamboo has increasingly become one of the top engineering materials used in the manufacture of everyday items. Bamboo is a readily available resource that has many sustainable and versatile benefits.
Bamboo Is A Renewable Resource – When bamboo is harvested, it will continue to grow new shoots from its amazing root system. There is no additional planting or cultivation. Bamboo requires no chemicals, pesticides or fertilizer to grow and thrive. It’s very own fallen leaves provide the necessary nutrients that get recycled back into the soil.
Every part of the plant can be utilized in one way or another with zero waste. After the bamboo material has reached it’s life span, it can be recycled back into our good earth.
Bamboos Versatility In Building Material – The tensile strength of bamboo is one of mother nature’s most intriguing phenomenon’s. Tensile strength of steel is 24,000 PSI. Tensile strength of bamboo … 28,000 PSI (yes, you are reading that correct!). Bamboo is intrinsically strong in its molecular structure and has been used as a standard building material for the majority of the world for thousands of years.
Bamboo can replace the use of wood for any application from hardwood floors, furniture, utensils, bike frames, phone cases to almost anything imaginable.
