02 Bamboo

Bamboo’s unique wood-like qualities and extensive environmental benefits have led to an increasing number of Bamboo forest secure certifications in accordance with the standards of the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). This third party certification provides architects, designers and consumers with the assurance of social and environmental responsibility on the part of the producers.

Environmental Benefits of Bamboo
  • Produces up to 35% more oxygen than equivalent stands of trees.

  • Sequesters up to 70% more carbon dioxide than an equivalent stand of hardwood trees.
