bamboo is one of the strongest natural materials known to man. bamboo has a higher tensile strength than many steel alloys, and a higher compressive strength than many blends of concrete. it has a higher strength to weight ratio than graphite.
bamboo is a staple building material for civilizations dating back thousands of years. due to a mix of strength and flexibility, bamboo structures withstand earthquakes, typhoons, stresses of every kind.
bamboo is the fastest growing plant on Earth. certain species measure growth over a meter a day. A bamboo plant can regenerate full mass in six months and is ready for harvest within five years.  after harvest, bamboo root systems stay intact and automatically regenerate.
in contrast, trees used in conventional furniture can take fifty years to regenerate. there is no automatic regeneration for traditional wood forests.  poor forestry practices often lead to soil erosion and permanent scarring of land.
