Bamboo is often called ‘the world’s most renewable material’. It can grow up to one meter a day. This fast grower absorbs five times more carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than trees. Bamboo requires no pesticides or fertilizers, and little water. When it is harvested, the plant regenerates itself in no time thanks to its incredible root system. These root systems also prevent erosion and nourish the soil with potassium and other nutrients.
