BAMBOO BUILDING MATERIALS

Bamboo

Sustainability experts nearly universally agree bamboo is one of the best eco-friendly building materials on the planet. Its rate of self-generation is incredibly high, with some species growing up to three feet in 24 hours. Bamboo technically is a perennial grass, not a wood, and it continues spreading and growing without having to be replanted after harvest. It is prevalent around the world and can be found on every continent except Europe and Antarctica.

Bamboo has a high strength-to-weight ratio and exceptional durability — even greater compressive strength than brick or concrete — so it can take a beating without being replaced very often, which is not necessarily the case with other fast-growing, sustainable items such as hemp. That makes bamboo a viable choice for flooring and cabinetry.

Because it is lightweight, bamboo is less energy intensive to transport than many other materials of comparable durability. A drawback is that it requires treatment to resist insects and rot; untreated bamboo has a starch that insects like, and it can swell and crack when it absorbs water.
