Bamboo is hailed as the resource of the 21st century because it has countless ethical, environmental and other benefits.
Bamboo is a type of grass: cut it down and it grows back stronger than before. It’s not endangered. Managed bamboo-farms have a minimal effect on the environment.
Bamboo prevents soil erosion, requires no toxic fertilizers, and is lighter and stronger than steel itself! It is a pioneering plant and can be grown in soil damaged by overgrazing and poor agriculture without the need for pesticides or much water.

The United States Congressional Research Services Published a report on bamboo. Bamboo: An Overlooked BioMass Resource? Report released in 2000
