Bamboo is one of the world’s most sustainable materials and can grow up to 1 meter per day. Bamboo does not require fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots. Learn more about how bamboo is grown by clicking here. Bamboo includes some of the fastest-growing plants in the world, due to a unique rhizome-dependent system. Some species of bamboo can grow 910mm (36in) within a 24-hour period, at a rate of almost 40mm an hour (equivalent to 1mm every 90 seconds). This rapid growth and tolerance for marginal land, make bamboo a good candidate for afforestation, carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation. Choosing bamboo made products has a massive impact and is a great eco-friendly resource.
