Did you know that bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the planet?
I learned that only a couple of years ago, when diving into sustainable living.
Compared to other trees that take about 30+ years to grow, bamboo can be harvested approximately every 3-6 years. Thanks to its rapid growth, it can avoid future deforestation. It actually absorbs five times more carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than its trees equivalent, and the best of all? pesticides and chemicals aren't required when harvesting, so no harming the environment.
