Bamboo Products For The 21st Century
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are concerned with living green then you may pay attention to the products used at the home. The 21st century will see a change in how we consume our resources. The world is growing and expanding so consumption of natural resources will be a problem as more nations modernize. The biggest resource we use today which is vital to civilization is oil. So, much is used and made from oil from the plastic bottles contributing to our appliances. We use oil not only to fuel our vehicles but to create our roads with tar.

We are not going to replace oil as a resource anytime soon. Who can imagine a source of fuel and material as oil? The appliances we use in the home is usually surrounded by metal or plastic. Your computer is usually surrounded with plastic and your television. We could surround the appliances with wood it sounds strange but it could be done. By using wood we would be contributing to the deforestation of trees. The removal of forests may contribute to climate change in the world. A good material to use in place of wood is bamboo. Bamboo can be harvested without killing the plant and grow extremely fast as much as 3 feet day. The trees can be spared being chopped down producing oxygen and displacing carbon dioxide. The fast growth of bamboo creates more oxygen than trees and displaces more carbon dioxide.

Trees can still be used by using the bark as it is used in corks to create floors and other materials. I imagine the bark of the tree is important for protecting it from insects and other harmful bacteria. The corks usually come from particular trees with the thickest bark. So the removal of bark from trees has been done before in such a way that it won't destroy the trees. You can only harvest bark when the tree matures to a particular age and so often.

Bamboo can be use to make a variety of products and things. It is a material strong enough to use to make structures. In the east bamboo has been used to make bridges and homes. Bamboo has been demonstrated to be as strong and capable as hard wood.

Some computer companies have used bamboo as featured products around the laptop, keyboards, mouse and the cpu units for desktops. You usually see bamboo cutting boards, bamboo fences, and bamboo chairs. Some manufacturers have made some nice kitchen cabinets from bamboo.

Once a bamboo plant starts growing it's very difficult to remove it. Maybe bamboo can be grown in mass quantities to harvest for material. A plant that removes more carbon dioxide than regular trees when it grows and can be used for other resources is very beneficial.

Bamboo is a plant which can at least assist in reducing our carbon in the 21st Century. And products made from bamboo are very attractive when you see them.
