Bamboo, the giant grass, is known to be the fastest growing plant in the world. It can grow up to 60 cm a day. This plant has hollow stems with rhythmically spaced nodes and unlike trees; it can grow to its full height within 3-4 months.
Bamboos grow abundantly in tropical regions like the Philippines where, they are used extensively in everyday life as a food source and as a highly versatile raw product. (You’ll enjoy the comfort of living in beautiful nipa-and-bamboo huts with bamboo furniture in famous Philippine beach resorts.)
Among its many uses, matured bamboo stems are transformed into decorative crafts and ethnic jewelry. Today, with green jewelry fast becoming a fashion style on its own, we’re seeing the creative uses of natural materials like bamboo infused with artsy transformations in contemporary designs. So, why not make your own green jewelry looks with bamboo!
I must say, this is heading towards the right direction. Bamboo, among many other natural materials, is renewable and economical.
In fact, green is not just a color, it is a lifestyle. So, go green! Look and feel great, too.
