Why Is Bamboo Better For The Environment?



There are many claims that bamboo is better for the environment but why exactly are scientists, environmentalists, and agriculturists making these claims?

It important to note that bamboo has a long history of economic and cultural significance, primarily in East Asia and Southeast Asia where it has been used for centuries for everything from building material to food to medicine. There are over 1,000 different species of bamboo growing in very diverse climates throughout the world.

Bamboo's environmental benefits arise largely out of its ability to grow quickly—in some cases three to four feet per day—without the need for fertilizers, pesticides or much water. That's pretty amazing, right?

The majority of us care about our impact on the environment and want to try and conserve the planet for our kids and their kids. These aspirations seem lofty and it can feel like a losing battle at times.

We at Bamboo Warehouse are very conscious of the ecological effect deforestation has on our beautiful planet. For those of you not too familiar with the term it is the conversion of forested areas to non-forest land for use such as arable land, pasture, urban use, logged area, or wasteland. Deforestation can also be seen as the removal of forests leading to several imbalances ecologically and environmentally and results in declines in habitat and biodiversity. Urbanisation, hardwood production, mining, fires, logging and agricultural activities are few of the causes of deforestation.
