Bamboo has been utilized by humans for centuries, and grows in tropical climates, it is widely regarded as a miracle plant. It can be used in building materials, manufacturing, decoration ect.
Bamboo is a very sustainable resource and can be used for many purposes. Bamboo is grass that actually helps to prevent soil erosion. It also grows at an astonishing rate. It can also be harvested without the death of the crop. Once you cut down a hardwood, that tree is dead. To replace that tree, may take up to 20-40 years before you can harvest a viable crop again. Contrast this with bamboo, which can grow at a rate of 1 m in a 24 hour period for some species, the bamboo we use is ready for harvest in about 4-8 years.
Bamboo's green footprint makes it a plant that could very well shape our future. As forests continue to be cleared for wood production and other needs, bamboo can offer us an alternative to clearcutting. Bamboo takes in more CO2 and produces much more oxygen than your average hardwood tree. This makes it a valuable partner in fighting climate change.
The strength of bamboo has been found to be very tensile.The beauty of bamboo, is that it isn't made to break. Instead, bamboo goes with the flow and has the ability to bend in a strong windstorm. When stalks are cut and compressed, they can rival the strength of most steel, so bamboo is very useful for many purposes.
