Bamboo Facts

Bamboo is a grass, but with a woody stalk. There are over 1250 species of bamboo growing from sea level to 13,500 feet, with varieties found on every continent but the frozen poles. Bamboo has become a hot "green" commodity used in everything from fiber to flooring to fabric. However, few understand its unmatched abilities to sequester CO2 to help fight climate change.
