Why We LUV Bamboo


  1. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases like crazy

    Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent parcel of hardwood trees. Bamboo is a grass actually, not a tree. Bamboo is actually a evergreen perennial flowering plants in the subfamily Bambusoideae of the grass family Poaceae, which explains its speed of growth. With almost 1,700 varieties, bamboo can fully mature in three to five years, making it one of the fastest growing plants on earth.

  2. Bamboo is naturally organic

    Consider bamboo more like a weed. It doesn’t need pesticides, fertilisers or irrigation to enhance its growth; it is generally a very aggressive ‘runner’ and has been recorded to grow as fast as 4’ in a day and matures in 3-5 years. Not only can bamboo tolerate periods of flooding, it can handle drought, as well.

  3. Bamboo uses date back over 5,000 years

    Bamboo has been a popular material in China for over 5,000 years and is a symbol of strength. It has had hugely diverse uses over the last 5,000 years; clothing, housing, transportation, music instruments and even weapons.

  4. Bamboo is a favorite food on two continents

    Bamboo shoots contain antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory qualities. Low in calories, which makes them weight-loss friendly with a long legacy of amazing dishes throughout Southeast Asia. Just don’t eat raw, when eaten raw, it contains a toxin that produces cyanide in your gut. Elephants in India, and pandas in China and giant gorillas in Africa don’t seem to mind, it’s their primary diet.

  5. Bamboo fabric is antibacterial and hypoallergenic

    Bamboo fabric contains a naturally antibacterial agent that makes it non-irritating to the skin. As a result it’s also more hygienic than similar fabric types and is anti-static, too boot. Since it is a natural fiber material it wicks moisture away from the skin like other natural fiber materials (cotton, wool, silk) to keep you dry and comfortable.
