Benefits of Bamboo Plant
Bamboo is one of the quickest growing plants in the world. It can reach up to a meter of growth per day! That also means it can be harvested a lot more frequently than the average crop, making it a great sustainable resource. It also grows incredibly densely, absorbs up to 5x the amount of CO2, and produces 35% more Oxygen than other plants in the same amount of space, which helps decrease the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere.
And because bamboo is cut and not uprooted when it’s harvested, the plant can regrow without having to be replanted, aiding in soil sustainability. The extensive root system holds soil together, preventing soil erosion and helps to retain water, which is why bamboo requires less water than the average plant and can rely solely on rain water.
And the best news for the consumer? Since it is naturally bacteria and pest-resistant, there is no need for the use of pesticides or any other chemicals. It also means it can be composted and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way at the end of its useful life cycle.
