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!
Most Bamboo species are native to warm, moist tropical and warm temperate climates.
