What Makes Bamboo Sustainable

Estimated read time 2 min read

Well, bamboo is probably most known as a food or floor covering, but it’s also considered to be one of the most environmentally sound materials in existence, able to grow easily without much human interference (unlike trees). In fact, bamboo has been called the miracle material, as it’s able to grow even in arid environments, which makes it ideal for farmers who want to grow crops without having to worry about their crops dying from lack of water or nutrients.

Unlike many other bio-based materials, which require extensive amounts of natural replenishment, bamboo is able to grow rapidly and keep its own moisture, allowing it to be replenished from above ground up. Bamboo has also been proven to be stronger than most trees (including eucalyptus), and is resistant to a wide range of predators including humans.

It also requires less pesticides and herbicides to grow, making it the ideal material for eco-friendly and organic products such as flooring, plant potting mixes, building materials, and storage containers as well as its use in beauty products and the Bamboo Toothbrush that you can get from Bambooth.

As an eco-friendly material, bamboo products are also friendly to the environment. A person who grows bamboo will often collect bamboo straw for making paper, as it contains cellulose which is an eco-friendly alternative to trees’ bark.
