But, why bamboo? Here's a great except from our friends at Bamboofencer

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.
