Bamboo is a weed or a grass, which is used to make many things, including flooring and furniture. People like to use bamboo because it is an environmentally friendly product. Bamboo takes only about 5 years to grow, unlike hardwoods that are used on for furniture, which take at least 50 years to replenish. The renewable nature of bamboo and its lack of pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals makes it eco-friendly and popular. You can buy bamboo furniture for your home, patio or office in retail stores or online. Make sure it is real and sustainable bamboo, and not a material that looks like bamboo.
