Bamboo is one of the world's most prolific and fastest-growing plants, and is able to reach maturity in about four years, compared to the typical 25 to 70 years for commercial tree species.
Bamboo is actually a tropical grass, with an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year, naturally replenishing itself and growing to heights of 50 feet or more. As a result, bamboo is one of nature's most sustainable resources since it is naturally regenerative.
Natural and Chemical-Free
Bamboo is grown without using pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Bamboo fiber is 100% biodegradable.
Scientists found that bamboo has a unique anti-bacterial bio-agent known as "Bamboo Kun" which allows bamboo to thrive naturally in the wild.
