From shirts to sheets, bikes to floors, stakes to instruments, every corner of the consumer market is inundated with bamboo products. Few of these products take advantage of bamboo’s impressive material qualities, but rather use it as “filler” in making every day products. My research takes a closer look at the problems associated with such practices, and suggests a few more efficient ways in which bamboo can be utilized to make our world better.
