World Bamboo Day 2017: 5 Ways Bamboo is Sustainable

Today is World Bamboo Day, so Tesoro Woods is sharing the five ways bamboo is sustainable! Tesoro Woods offers beautiful, eco-friendly bamboo flooring products that are perfect for any home.

  1. Bamboo is Rapidly Renewable

Did you know that bamboo is technically a grass? Actually, it’s the world’s fastest growing grass! A rapidly renewable material, bamboo grows for only five to seven years before it is harvested. Comparatively, hardwood grows for approximately 50 years before it can be harvested.

  1. Bamboo is a Natural, Plentiful Source

Bamboo can be harvested after growing for only five to seven years in the forests. After the bamboo is harvested from the forests, the root system remains intact to produce new shoots. Because of this, bamboo is not replanted once it’s cut.

  1. Bamboo has a Beautiful Appearance

Bamboo flooring doesn’t have to look like bamboo. Tesoro Woods’ bamboo flooring has a variety of floors, in different styles and colors. Tesoro Woods’ California Coast Strand Bamboo features six different products with a solid, strand woven construction and unique colors that resemble wood flooring.

  1. Bamboo Contains No VOCs

Tesoro Woods’ bamboo flooring contains no VOCs and no added formaldehyde. The California Coast Strand Bamboo Collection uses a low-VOC water-based finish to help severely limit the number of unsafe chemicals in your home.

  1. Bamboo has Natural Strength

Solid strand bamboo has a Janka hardness rating of 3,014lbf. Comparatively, Red Oak has a Janka hardness of 1260lbf, nearly half the strength of bamboo. Bamboo is naturally strong and rigid, making it a perfect building material.

Additionally, bamboo naturally resists mildew and insects. It also resists dust mites, making it a good choice for those who suffer from allergies.
