The needle in Alexander Graham Bell’s first phonograph was made of it and Thomas Edison used it as a filament for his glass bulb. We’re talking about bamboo.

It's World Bamboo Day. Bamboo is amazing!...Here's why:

It requires no pesticides or chemical fertilisers

It grows rapidly and can be harvested in 3-5 years

It rarely needs replanting

It produces more oxygen than trees

It plays an important role in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

It sequesters carbon dioxide and is carbon neutral

It requires no irrigation

It is excellent for inhibiting soil erosion

It grows in a wide range of environments

Its production into fibres has lower environmental impact than other forms of fibre, especially synthetic ones.

It can build houses, schools and other buildings, roads and bridges, is used in medicines, creates strong durable fabrics, can be made into accessories, can be eaten, creates fuel, scaffolding, furniture, rugs, paper, nappies, utensils and tableware, musical instruments, bicycles, the list is endless…
