Bamboo Does ALL THAT??

December 30, 2008 at 3:19 pm 3 comments

Bamboo is one of the earth’s fastest growing plants with a tensile strength superior to steel!  Over half of the world’s population is using it daily for food, shelter, fuel, and clothing.  Being that bamboo is so versatile and durable, you’re probably asking yourself the same thing we were many months back – “why the heck am I not using bamboo products every day?!

We answered that question with the Bambu line of products for the kitchen (of course we love them for everywhere, but we’ve started with the kitchen.)  Bambu makes stylish products from plates to bowls to cutlery and even serving trays, dip platters, and cutting boards.  Some of the products are reusable while others are bio-degradable and compostable, while simultaneously creating a stylish environment for family meals or when friends are over.  The statement made by Bambu products on the table is that you not only have a flair for decorating in unique ways, but that you thought about how your purchases affect the planet overall.

Check out Bambu’s line of 6″ bowls in a variety of colors – Naked, Sunflower, Cayenne, Chocolate and New Black.  The bowls are coiled, shaped by hand, and covered in a natural lacquer that creates a durable waterproof finish. And when you’re cleaning up, you’ll be pleased that Bambu 6″ bowls are suitable for both hot and cold foods and clean easily with warm soapy water or damp cloth.

(And don’t neglect to check out the Kids Collection, which is separate from the Veneerware).

    Be Careful putting all this information out there about bamboo…

    May I remind you of the story of Hemp.
    Hemp has over 50,000 known uses and products derived from the plant.
    Meanwhile, Rockefeller developed ties in the middle east (cheap oil?) and DuPont realized that in order to succeed with products that were or soon would be inferior/useless, they needed to eliminate the competition. These products were Paper from trees, Nylon, and Plastic derived from Petrol, as well as pesticides and fertilizers to grow Cotton and other crops, and Diesel Fuel as a substitute for Bio-fuel. So They (Rockefeller, DuPont, and company) sent lobbyists to the Capitol, and pushed through legislation to criminalize Cannabis, because “Marijuana was evil.” and by making the entire cannabis strain illegal they included Hemp.

    Now the analogy to my story is if you wouldn’t call a poppy seed, Opium, Then WHY would you call Hemp, Marijuana?

    It’s a little piece of satire to:
    a) open people’s eyes about Hemp
    b) not let history repeat itself for the benefit of corporate greed

    Hello James,
    Thanks for the thoughtful email.
    Of course we don’t want any legislation against bamboo, however we have a mission.
    That mission is to promote eco-consciousness, specifically in the products we use on a daily basis.
    And bamboo falls into that category in a major way.
    We promise you this – if there’s ever a day when bamboo is threatened to be made illegal, we’ll be at the forefront of the fight to keep it au natural.
    Keep the thoughts coming, James.

    Hello Ecosumo,

    Haha, i was merely being sarcastic or satirical, I’m not quite sure which word I prefer, but either way, I doubt they’ll ever make bamboo illegal. Bamboo doesn’t threaten the oil Industry the way Hemp does being twice as productive as any other source known to produce biofuel. Ethanol is a farce. It was merely publicized to get some corporate farms grant money before they capped the limit.

    Did you know that if you take a 20/80 mix of BioDiesel to Diesel respectively that you reduce Emissions by 75%?!?!

    Be Well
