Bamboo will become a key resource in the future. It is the fastest growing plant on the planet and it requires less water to grow than trees; bamboo also produces more oxygen than trees. Although bamboo is classified as a grass it is harder than many hardwood timbers and it is very durable. Bamboo can be used to make a wide variety of products. Bamboo is a source of nutrition, medicine and building materials. You can weave bamboo, you can carve bamboo and you can make fabric from bamboo. Because bamboo reaches maturity in just 5 years it can be considered a renewable resource. At present there are many great bamboo gifts available either in shops or from online retailers.
One such product is bamboo charcoal. Bamboo charcoal makes a great ornament for the lounge or kitchen and it is a good air-freshener. It is a 100% natural product containing no VOCs. The charcoal literally sucks all the bad odors out of the air. Bamboo charcoal is also available in handy bags that can be put in the fridge or garbage bin to get rid of bad smells.
Another great bamboo gift idea is bamboo seeds. Bamboo can grow in nearly any climate. Bamboo provides privacy for a garden and helps create a beautiful natural boundary to your property.
For the home, bamboo shades make a great present. Bamboo shades have been used for centuries by people in Japan, China and Korea. They allow people to see out but not for people to see in. The thin pieces of bamboo are often hand-woven into shades that look beautiful. Bamboo shades are easy to install and easy to clean and make great window or door treatments that bring a touch of the Orient into a room.
As hardwood trees become rarer and rarer because deforestation, bamboo will come more to the fore. Bamboo charcoal, bamboo seeds and bamboo shades will be just three of thousands of bamboo products in the future.
