Bamboo is renowned as a green material used to make a multitude of products. Bamboo can be used to create everything from clothing, housewares, paper and even bio fuels. This wonder plant is as sustainable as it is flexible and can be grown in many climates, included much of the USA. It is an incredibly fast growing crop, requires little water and no pesticides. Additionally, bamboo filters soil and sequesters more CO2 than trees.
A Bamboo Project recently guest posted about their initiative to cultivate a bamboo industry in the USA. Their Indiegogo campaign is raising funds to create a flourishing bamboo American bamboo industry, providing not only eco-friendly products but American jobs. To demonstrate all the lovely things that can be made from bamboo right here in the USA, I’ve put together this collection. Check out some of my favorite products made in USA with bamboo!
