Bamboo can withstand more stress through it’s entire length because it has no rays or knots

Higher tensile strength than many alloys of steel

Higher compressive strength than many mixtures of concrete

Higher strength-to-weight ratio than graphite

ECONOMIC BENEFITS

GREEN

Bamboo is clocked as the fastest growing plant on Earth. Some species have been measured to grow over 4 feet in 24 hours

A pole of bamboo can regenerate to its full mass in just six months!

Bamboo can be continuously re-harvested every 3 years, without causing damage to the plant system and surrounding environment

During the time it takes to regenerate, the bamboo plant’s root system stays intact so erosion is prevented

Continuous harvesting of this woody grass every 3-7 years, actually improves the overall health of the plant

It is believed that if bamboo were planted on a mass basis it could completely reverse the effects of global warming in just 6 years, while providing a renewable source of food, building material, and erosion prevention
