  Bamboo Farming  
 

It grows faster than any commercialized plant. Bamboo, a member of the grass family, is among the fastest growing woody plants in the world. It can grow up to 24 inches per day and reaches full harvesting maturity in three to seven years, significantly faster than hardwoods.

It is strong. Remarkably, bamboo is tensile or cellulose fiber strength is similar to that of steel and is non-porous when processed as cardboard, making it a reliable material for protecting technology equipment in transit. A viable replacement for wood. Bamboo is one of the strongest packaging materials available today for sustainable packaging. Bamboo's tensile strength is 28,000 per square inch versus 23,000 for steel. While bamboo is incredibly strong, it is also flexible and lightweight, which makes it an essential structural material in earthquake architecture. Bamboo is a critical element in the balance of oxygen / carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Bamboo is the fastest growing canopy for the re-greening of degraded areas and generates 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.

Bamboo may hold the answer to the future re-vegetation of the earth in vast areas in the developing world and other deforested regions around the world. In modern urban centers, bamboo vegetation can be used in creating the balance of wind direction and erosion it is easy on the environment. Bamboo helps promote healthy soil. The plant's deep root systems protect against land erosion, and when harvested correctly, it does not require replanting after harvest because it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system without any reproduction farming tools and fertilization. This means that bamboo renews itself constantly, unlike hardwood trees, which, once cut, are gone forever. Bamboo is an endlessly renewable resource.

Bamboo can be reused and decomposed, but it will not generate harmful materials. With a positive impact on our environment, Bamboo truly is one of the world's renewable sources. Bamboo also helps reduce carbon dioxide gases and mitigates water pollution due to its high nitrogen consumption. The use of bamboo as a packaging material is growing in interest as companies seek to use more sustainable packaging. Bamboo packaging materials provide an innovative texture and look to new products.

Bamboo is Biodegradable
What I love about this option is that we are enlisting the help of nature to help us clean up the mess we created in nature. Microorganisms will break down a bamboo-packaging product if we give them something to munch on. This is where bamboo packaging products is the number choice for sustainability. Bamboo consumes carbon dioxide at rapid rates while growing. Carbon dioxide is the prime contributor to global warming.  Bamboo cultivation does not require the use of pesticides, and fertilizers used are often organic. The typical tree used in standard wooden fencing can take over 30 years or more to re-grow, with a harvesting cycle that produces less oxygen, consumes less carbon dioxide, and produces more run-off than bamboo.

One of the current catch phrases found in the news on a daily basis is "sustainability." Can we find products that we can use that raw materials can be produced in quantities that will not deplete the whole or imbalance the environment. Few raw materials have the potential for true sustainable production and consumption as bamboo. It is a highly versatile grass, with a tremendous growth rate and ability to survive in a both temperate and tropical environments. It's pulp/fibers produce products that are both strong and beautiful, such as restaurant foodservice containers, packing protective cushions and numerous eco-friendly products.

 
     
  The Top Ten Reasons Why Bamboo can Save the Planet  
 

By now, nearly everyone knows that we are depleting the natural resources worldwide at a rate that is well past sustainable. To some extent, we have become inured to alarming reports and ominous warnings about our wasteful ways. Occasionally, a development comes along that provides some optimism about our prospects for making positive changes in our living habits. One such development is the emergence of new uses for a species of grass that has been around far longer than we have. Bamboo has been used for everything from food to bridge building for millennia but consumers and manufacturers are taking a fresh look at all that this amazing plant has to offer. Here are the top ten ways that bamboo will save the planet.

  1. Renewable resource. Depending on the species, bamboo can be harvested in one to five years. Hardwoods like oak take at least forty years to mature before they can be harvested. Almost 1 million acres of forests are lost each week worldwide to deforestation. Bamboo's versatility as a substitute for hardwoods offers a chance to drastically reduce that figure and protect the forests that we have left.
  2. Absorbs greenhouse gases. Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent stand of hardwood trees.
  3. Amazing growth rate. Some species of bamboo grow more than three feet each day! No plant on the planet features a faster growth rate. When it is harvested, it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system with no need for additional planting or cultivation.
  4. Very little waste. After harvesting, virtually every part of the plant is used to make a wide variety of products. From soil-enriching mulch to beautiful furniture to chopsticks, every part of the plant can be utilized.
  5. Versatility. Bamboo can replace the use of wood for nearly every application. Paper, flooring, furniture, charcoal, building materials, and much more can be made from bamboo. What's more, bamboo fibers are far stronger than wood fibers and much less likely to warp from changing atmospheric conditions.
  6. No fertilizer, pesticides, or herbicides needed. Unlike most cash crops, bamboo requires no agricultural chemicals to thrive. Unlike cotton, which is one of the most intensely sprayed crops in the world and rapidly depletes the nutrients in the soil, bamboo sequesters nitrogen and cultivation does not add chemicals to the environment.
  7. Soil protection. Once hardwood forests are clear-cut and the stumps are burned to provide fertilizer and space for growing crops, erosion inevitably occurs as the topsoil and nutrients are washed away by rainfall. The eroded soil then clogs rivers and streams and affects the lives of people and animals living downstream. Bamboo roots remain in place after harvesting where they prevent erosion and help retain nutrients for the next crop.
  8. Economic development. In less developed countries where unemployment leads to civil unrest, bamboo production and the manufacturing of bamboo products provides job opportunities in areas that desperately need social and economic stability.
  9. Bamboo grows in a variety of conditions. Bamboo can grow in arid regions where droughts cause other crops to fail and since the roots are left in place after harvesting, it helps to preserve vital moisture in the soil. From low wetlands to higher elevations in the mountains, bamboo thrives in a wide range of climates.
  10. Optimism and cultural cooperation. In a fractious world where wars are fought over resources, the increasing popularity of bamboo products provides an opportunity for diverse cultures to settle their difference through trade and cooperation that benefits everyone.
