Bamboo is one of the "greenest" and most sustainable resources. It can grow more than three feet in a single day, replenish itself with ease, release 35 percent more oxygen than its fellow plants, and thrive without pesticides or fertilisers. The fastest-growing plant in the world shows up in all kinds of products, including flooring, furniture, and textiles.
Bathrooms can often have a cold or sterile feel, however by using bamboo in your bathroom you are embracing nature, and bringing warmth to the space. By using bamboo you can turn your bathroom into a serene and relaxing retreat.
