Bamboo Power

We all know about the sustainability of bamboo. But, do you also know about it's versatility? Bamboo floors have been around for awhile. It's highly durable as a floor product. Bamboo grown on plantations, mostly in South Asia, has found new uses in the world of home decor. It is being woven into lovely functional roller shades and further processed for wallpaper. If you like lots of texture on walls and looking for ways to go green opt for bamboo. To me the newest and most interesting use of this woody grass is in bedding. Bamboo threads are steel like in strength but are soft, breathable, absorbent and fast drying. Bamboo sheets and blankets are light weight and durable. They are comfortable enough to use year round.... So, in your quest to go green... try a set!

We used bamboo in our garden to create some fencing and railings and it works really well. Strong but also more natural and less jarring than using metals.
