Bamboo is a grass and a rapidly renewable resource. It can be grown with no added fertilizers, pesticides, or irrigation, and can sequester up to 70% more carbon per year than a hardwood forest. Bamboo regenerates annually and has a root structure that holds loose soil in place, preventing erosion. Sturdy bamboo works well for making recognition products, but not all products are equal. These are not your standard bamboo trophies.
