It's an incredible resource
From an environmental point of view where its characteristics explain its current growth. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and, therefore, an ecological and sustainable resource.
There are some 400 species of bamboo in the world, ranging from dwarf bamboos to others that reach 18 to 20 meters. The yield of one hectare of bamboo is ten times that of cotton.
One hectare of bamboo absorbs 20% more CO2 than one hectare of forest.
The contribution it makes to the health of the planet is unimaginable. Its capacity to absorb carbon dioxide is very high. It grows very fast. Its root system of rhizomes retains and accumulates water in the soil, acting as an atmosphere purifier.
But bamboo does not stop there: it is ultra-resistant, can be harvested at any time of the year and will resprout in the same place for many years. Its versatility as a natural resource can have a great impact on the world, as it can be used for countless products.
