Bamboo - a sustainable alternative to wood and plastic

Posted on November 27 2018

The daily requirement for bamboo in a large panda is up to 40 kilograms. However, the plant, which belongs to the family of the sweet cranes, does not only serve the fluffy bear as a food source, but also as an alternative to wood. Furniture, deco and accessories, utility products such as toothbrushes or hairbrushes, as well as parquet floors and other products are now produced from the woody stalks of this impressive plant.

The best feature of bamboo? His fast growth! "Fast" is almost understated here: the "Moso bamboo" grows up to one meter a day! The popular sweetgrass is found in tropical areas around the equator and differs in the height of its grasses; These range from a few centimeters to 40 meters. Bamboo, which is used in this country, is harvested mostly on plantations in China.

Not only his super fast growth makes the bamboo look sustainable. Take a look at the following factors that make this tropical plant a sustainable material and therefore a fitting alternative to conventional wood.

resilience. Since bamboo is very robust, it can be dispensed with in the cultivation - unlike, for example, coffee or bananas - for the most part pesticides or artificial irrigation methods. This has less of a burden on workers and the environment.

Flexibility. The wood of the bamboo is on the one hand hard and dense and on the other hand light and flexible. Therefore, the plant is great as a durable furniture and building material.

  • Growth. Due to its fast growth, bamboo stores a lot of CO2. Unlike deforestation, harvesting bamboo poses no danger of endangering their stock.
  • Not only wood, but also plastic, can be replaced by bamboo. Sweetgrass is considered as an alternative to plastic - the starting material for plastics.

      Mon frère a principalement utilisé le bambou pour aménager son jardin. Je souhaite plutôt utiliser la pierre. Je vais faire appel à un professionnel pour un aménagement total de l’espace et des créations en pierre sur mesures.
