Sustainable bamboo

Today’s consumers are aware of the importance of making sustainable choices and know that you don’t have to sacrifice style for green ethics. It is possible to choose high quality stylish Scandinavian furniture whilst looking after the planet.  

Do you want to purchase new garden furniture and want to make a sustainable choice? Then you should consider bamboo terrace furniture, as bamboo is widely accepted to be the most durable and long-lasting type of wood.  Bamboo is aesthetically pleasing, natural, simple and pure, it is also one of the most environmentally friendly choices for creating stylish natural furniture

Why is bamboo environmentally friendly?

Environmental friendliness is a broad concept. It covers areas such as sustainable material, sustainable processes, sustainable lifespan and much more. Here are just some of the sustainable qualities of bamboo:

o   Bamboo is a resource that is never depleted

There are many different varieties of bamboo, all grow exceptionally fast compared to other trees - in fact, it can grow up to one meter per day. In addition, the newest stems are not harvested, which means that they have plenty of room to grow.

o   Bamboo is extremely durable

The surface of bamboo is generally much more durable than most other types of wood. With other woods, the bark protects the trunk but bamboo is hard throughout. Its strength surpasses that of Oak, Beech and Ash.  When processed properly, the hard bamboo wood offers incredible durability and longevity.

o   Bamboo contributes positively to CO2 development

Bamboo is the plant that releases the most oxygen, up to 35% more than ordinary trees. In addition, bamboo also recycles large amounts of CO2. Once again, it is a consequence of the bamboo's fast-growing stems that flourish without the need for pesticides or artificial fertilizers.
