We choose to partner with Alterna Corp. to bring you the best in sustainably-sourced, CARB II compliant, FSC-certified bamboo. Bamboo is widely considered to be one of the most sustainable building materials on the planet because of its rapidly renewable properties.
Did you know certain species of bamboo, which is actually a grass, can grow as much as one inch in an hour? But despite being a grass, bamboo performs like many popular hardwood species such as oak or cherry, which can take decades to mature and replenish.
Bamboo can be grown with no added fertilizers, pesticides or irrigation and can sequester up to 70% more carbon per year than a hardwood forest—helping offset carbon dioxide emissions. Bamboo can also be harvested without the need to replant, as its root structure naturally regenerates.
Really want to be amazed and inspired? Check out Elora Hardy’s TED Talk about bamboo that first inspired us to explore innovative solutions using bamboo:
