History tells us that bamboo has been around for over seven thousand years.  It has been used for a variety of purposes.  Production materials like paper, arrows, artwork, musical instruments, and building materials. When considering its origins, its economic sustainability, and its present applications, bamboo is an exceptionally renewable resource.

Bamboo’s Origin

Although bamboo does not grow in colder climates, it thrives in many different countries; however, most historians agree that bamboo originated in China. Technically, bamboo is classified as a type of grass, although some species grow as tall and thick as trees. Since bamboo such a rapidly growing and renewable resource, it has had many applications over the centuries including a source of food for herbivorous and omnivorous creatures.
