Bamboo is the fastest growing, most versatile woody plant in the world. It can grow up to a whole 2 meters every week and consumes carbon dioxide FOUR times faster than any other plant. Bamboo plantations are large factories for photosynthesis which reduces greenhouse gases. Bamboo plants absorb about 5 times the amount of carbon dioxide (a primary greenhouse gas) and produces about 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
