Hi Denise:
Nice to see you today. You really are doing a great job. Thanks again
for including me.

Q: What is eco-friendly bamboo?

A: The reason why bamboo is known for its environmental sustainability is that it is considered a grass and not a tree. This means that it is harvested when it is quite young. The comparison is that it takes an oak tree 60 to 120 years to grow to maturity whereas it takes only about five years for a bamboo plant to mature to the point when it can be harvested. It also self-generates in a self-contained pot relatively quickly.
