There’s a raging debate about what to do about traffic, pollution, and all the other problems that come with modern transport. For many, the bicycle seems to be the obvious solution to the problem. Bikes pollute less than cars. They’re far more affordable than your average car and we’re not even talk about gas prices. However, modern bicycle materials aren’t very sustainable. They don’t allow for the smallest carbon footprint possible. The reason is that carbon fiber, while lightweight and strong, is very hard to recycle.

Bamboo Solves The Straw Problem

By Bamboo Grove on April 26, 2018

Plastic drinking straws are a nuisance. That’s a strong stance to take I’m sure. We all love those bendy straws we used to drink out of when we were kids. We couldn’t imagine drinking an Arnold Palmer without a colorful straw. Straws make it easy for us to drink our favorite drinks on the go? What about your morning coffee?

Asus Introduces Bamboo Laptop Computers

By Bamboo Grove on November 28, 2008

We’ve heard about bamboo computer monitors, bamboo computer mice, bamboo keyboards, and other computer peripherals crafted from bamboo but Taiwan-based ASUS, maker of all manner of computer components, has announced laptop computers with bamboo veneers. ASUS’ Bamboo Series features laptop computers with artisan-grade Moso bamboo paneling. Part of their Ultra-Slim line of laptop PCs, these bamboo laptops have bamboo veneer on the back of the display, below the keyboard, and even the touch pad is made from bamboo fibers.

It’s been well-documented that when given the choice, most consumers will choose an environmentally-friendly product if it is equal or superior in quality to less ‘green’ alternatives.
