Photosynthesis is the breathing method all green plants use to survive. In summary, it is the process through which plants use solar energy to transform the carbon dioxide in the air into starch and carbohydrates before releasing oxygen into nature. In other words, the richer the land is in forests, the cleaner its air will be and the more abundant its rain.
Bamboo is an iconic plant of the Far East’s rainy climate. It produces 35 percent more oxygen than similar-sized plants and absorbs four times more carbon dioxide than other plants during photosynthesis. Because of this, bamboo forests are the fastest air cleaners and the fastest contributors to our world.
The use of bamboo products contributes to the increase of industrial bamboo forests. This increases the demand for bamboo, leading to a cleaner world.
Bamboo trees grow very fast and can be harvested several times a year. No other tree species can be harvested this quickly. Typically a 50-year-old oak tree is required to make furniture or kitchen utensils. However, the same product can also be made using a two-month-old bamboo. It will take 50 years to regrow the oak tree, yet the bamboo will return in just a few months.
