All of Core Bamboo's items are distinctively stylish, ultra durable, and totally organic. The benefits of using bamboo are numerous. For example: As a member of the grass family, not a tree, it grows at a much quicker rate than any other wood. From start to harvest (60-70 feet tall) it can take just four years. Bamboo is also one of the strongest yet lightest materials around. Bamboo is 16% stronger than Maple and is 33% lighter in weight than Oak. Most importantly, it holds the promise of a sustainable, cost effective, and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clear cutting of our old growth forests. Bamboo is good for you and good for the environment! Clean with warm soapy water or a damp cloth.
