Sustainable & Renewable Bamboo
Bamboo is quickly becoming a popular material in the easel market due to its durability and superior hardness compared to traditional woods. The attractive grain of bamboo, whether natural or caramelized, makes it a distinctive, elegant, and subtle replacement for hardwoods. Bamboo is *stronger than oak*, considered one of the most durable hardwoods, and can withstand a great deal of use without damage. Bamboo displays are one of the many Eco-friendly alternatives to less Eco-conscious products such as aluminum displays. One use of Bamboo displays is in visual merchandising. The distinctive look helps attract potential client's attention to the store window, It attractively displays products and is being used for interior store design as well. Bamboo is not a tree-it is a grass and it grows like one. Many species of bamboo can grow two feet or more a day. After harvesting, it doesn't need to be replanted. Bamboo renews itself readily, unlike hardwood trees, which, once cut, are gone forever. It will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system. Bamboo is an endlessly renewable resource. Farmed bamboo prevents erosion, stabilizes the earth with its roots. It takes in greenhouse gasses and produces oxygen; 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees. It also provides a habitat for birds and animals. Bamboos are becoming more of notable significance all over the world, being used for building materials, as a food source, and as a versatile raw product.
