Think bamboo ... think exotic
The very thought of bamboo conjures up images of exotic tropical scenes - tall, green bamboo forests gently swaying in the soft, warm breeze. Bamboo has helped humankind since time began for shelter, weapons, food, and medicine. Something about bamboo fulfills a basic human need of getting back to nature and a more simple life.
12,000 Documented species & varieties
Bamboo is actually a grass that grows to a harvestable height between 3 - 5 years. Some species grow up to 2 feet per day. After harvesting, bamboo does not require replanting, it has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself, making it one of the most renewable resources known.
No old growth forests are touched, no trees are cut.
Bamboo is 16% harder than maple wood, 1/3 lighter in weight than oak, yet in some instances as strong as steel. Bamboo holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clearcutting of our old growth forests.
The bamboo we use Phyllostachus, Pubescens, more commonly referred to as "Moso"is grown 500k west of Shanghai in China. This part of China has a temperate climate which encourages a slower growing bamboo and therefore producing a much denser, harder and durable culm or stalk. Unlike most other hardwoods, it absorbs very little moisture and consequently does not shrink or swell as much making it a superior choice of material for cutting boards.
Bamboo is not only a "plant" it's a way of life.
We have been bitten by the "bamboo bug". We don't know why but it seems everyone involved in bamboo is so passionate about it - it must be contagious. Bamboo is such a beautiful and useful plant, not to mention an ecologically friendly material.
