Often labelled 'the world’s most renewable material’ and the fastest growing woody plant in the world, bamboo is a great choice for building, furniture, homewares and flooring. It is naturally anti-bacterial, water resistant, extremely durable and good-looking to boot! Technically a grass, the bamboo tree grows in abundance across the globe, absorbing five times more carbon dioxide and producing 35% more oxygen than a similar group of trees. To thrive like this, bamboo requires no pesticides, and little water so it's a super choice for a more sustainable home.
