What is Bamboo?
Despite its wood-like texture, bamboo is not actually classified as a tree. Technically, bamboo is a type of grass. And, along with many other useful traits, it’s highly renewable. In fact, it’s the fastest growing plant on the planet. Under the right conditions it can grow up to three feet high in just 24 hours. It can also reach full maturity in 1-5 years where a hardwood tree takes 30-40, making it better for acting against deforestation and keeping up with human consumption.
The first use of bamboo, as any panda would tell you, is for food! The shoots of bamboo are an essential ingredient in dishes all around the world, and are even made into tea. However, records suggest that bamboo was used for housing, weapons and other items in China as early as 7,000 years ago. Since then, it’s become an essential building material all around the world. This is partially because of its natural strength and flexibility. The tensile strength of bamboo (the measurement of its resistance to break under tension) is 28,000 PSI. To put it in perspective, that’s even higher than steel, which has a tensile strength of 24,000 PSI.
Bamboo’s strength combined with the recent push to look for more sustainable materials in everyday items makes it perfect for promotional products of all kinds. It’s even anti-bacterial, which is great for kitchen and bathroom items. Containing a naturally occurring bio-agent, bamboo is able to eliminate and prevent more than 70% of bacteria that attempt to grow on it. And it’s an alternative to plastic products, since it’s biodegradable and more sustainably produced.
If you weren’t already sold on all the benefits of bamboo, it’s actually great for the environment for other reasons, too. In general, the plant is a favorite of environmentalists because of its uniquely helpful characteristics. For example, bamboo releases around 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees and is built to withstand extreme weather conditions. Is there anything this plant can’t do?
