10 cool bamboo products for hotels and everyday use

In a world where depletion of natural resources is a growing problem, the use of a quickly renewable material instead of finite resources can provide a solution. Bamboo is such a renewable material. In fact, it is one of the most sustainable, eco-friendly and renewable materials for the manufacturing of everyday products. It can grow exceptionally quickly, without the need of fertilizers, pesticides or much water. Bamboo is so fast-growing that it can produce 20 times more material than trees on the same area.
