It seems like hundreds of products can be made from bamboo. From household items to the entire house, bamboo products are nothing new to society. Ancient civilizations were using bamboo for building long before they were using other materials and this trend has faded slightly over the centuries, but is now making a comeback in parts of the world, becoming a popular resource.
Bamboo has been made into numerous products over the years. From raw products like bamboo charcoal or edible bamboo shoots, to finished pieces like furniture and instruments, there are many kinds of bamboo products out there. Whether they are made of raw or treated bamboo, they all seem to be used with more frequency now that we are re-discovering the versatility of the products. Some bamboo products include:
- Bed sheets
- Paint brushes
- Cutting boards
- Garden plants
There are also some very unusual products made from bamboo out in the world. Most people would never think these products could be made with bamboo, but they hold up just as well as metallic counterparts. These products include:
- Record player needles
- Wedding favors
- Sugar (as in sugar cane)
This is only a tiny representation of what kinds of products can be made with bamboo. There are hundreds of others, all waiting to be accepted into mainstream society as great products to replace those out there made of less renewable resources.
