Bamboo is one of the strongest building materials available. Bamboo’s tensile strength is 28,000 per square inch versus 23,000 for steel. While bamboo is incredibly strong, it is also flexible and lightweight, which makes it an essential structural material in earthquake architecture. In Limon, Costa Rica, only the bamboo houses from the National Bamboo Project stood after their violent earthquake in 1992.
Bamboo Revolution believes purchasing based on long lasting quality, the environmental effects of the production, and what contributions the company offers the community, local or worldwide, is the first step in tipping the scales towards a sustainable society. If each of us — as suppliers, manufacturers, and consumers — demands products and companies to offer more than the cheapest, easiest solution, they will be forced to respond to their customers’ demands.
Bamboo Revolution takes pride providing a gateway to the possibilities of bamboo and its role in responsible, sustainable practices.
