BAMBOO VS. OTHER FIBER SOURCES: POLES APART
As a perennial grass, bamboo regenerates itself – and, if that isn’t compelling enough, it’s also the strongest growing woody plant on earth. It is. . .
RENEWABLE RESOURCE: yields 6 times more fiber than trees and regrows from the same root stalk.
VERSATILE: produces raw material fiber for infinite uses including nail laminated timbers, rail ties, decking, furniture, textiles, biocomposites, energy and more.
SUSTAINABLE: captures 5 times more carbon and releases 35% more oxygen to the atmosphere than an equivalent stand of trees.
LOW MAINTENANCE: easily contained to desired areas through man-made barriers and pruning.
BENEFICIAL: creates new industries and supports well-paying permanent jobs in existing industries.
