Why choose Bamboo Care
Bamboo - renewable sustainable:
Bamboo is the largest grass in the grass family and also the fastest growing woody plants in the world. They are capable of growing up to 60cm or more per day due to a unique rhizome-dependent system. Bamboo can be selectively harvested every year after 7 years, compared to 30 to 50 years for trees, and bamboo regenerates without replanting. With a 10-30% annual increase in biomass versus 2-5% for trees, bamboo can yield 20 times more timber than trees on the same area.
Bamboo- enviormentally friendly
Bamboo growing quickly but does not require fertilizers and pesticides, and also require very little water which can easily survive in drought conditions. Because of its wide spread root system and large canopy, bamboo greatly reduces rain run off and prevents massive soil erosion. The plant can also releases a significant amount of oxygen into atmosphere; it helps to reduce the lever of carbon dioxide in the air.
