Functional surfaces with hardworking modern character

Why is it sustainable? Bamboo is a grass indigenous to South East China that grows quickly and can be harvested without destroying the ground it grows in. Bamboo forests absorb greenhouse gasses and are maintained without fertilizers or pesticides. The material is also both recyclable and biodegradable.
