Bamboo is has always been popular as a building material, especially in house-building. It is one of the fastest growing and highest yielding renewable natural resource making it a good substitute to wood in mitigating pressure on natural forests. In a world when climate change and sustainability is one of the global issues that needs to be addressed with top priority, Bamboo comes as a welcome option.
