Eco Warrior

Almost 1 million acres of forest are lost each week due to deforestation. Bamboo's versatility provides a substitute for slower growing hardwoods, offering a chance to reduce this figure.

Bamboo helps rebuild eroded soil, important in the process of reforestation. Bamboo replenishes nutrients such as potassium in depleted soil and its amazing root structure provides support for repopulation of other species.

Bamboo is carbon neutral and absorbs 5 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than similar plants. It also produces 35% more oxygen in comparison!

Bamboo, what can't it do?

Bamboo stem has a stronger structure than steel and has the advantage of being lighter, so this makes it the ideal material for construction. You can see it being used in Asia to build roads, bridges, houses and scaffolding.

 

Its antibacterial properties make it an excellent material for utensils, cutlery, containers and beauty products.

 

Textiles can also be made from Bamboo, favoured for being more lightweight and softer than cotton.
