Bamboo products have increased in popularity over recent years, especially with people who are conscious about the impact that things like single use plastic are having on the environment around us. But, bamboo has actually been used for centuries in the construction of products and even in construction. It was used centuries ago for channelling water in an early form of plumbing.

Since these early days bamboo has been used to create a number of different products. This is due to the fact that it is an incredibly sustainable product and it grows very quickly. This means that everytime bamboo is removed to be used in products, a new plant is already growing.

Here are some of the types of products that you can find made from bamboo.

Bathroom – face cloths, makeup pads and brushes and toothbrushes from Bamboo Toothbrush UK companies like bambooth.com are all made from the wood. They are all products that are often made of single use plastic or are made from cotton that is disposed of. The bamboo alternatives can be used time and time again and decompose when they are thrown away.

Kitchen – plates, bowls, spoons, kitchen cloths and many more items are available made with bamboo wood and fibres. Again this can help to replace the need for plastic items that are not sustainable. Many kitchen utensils can also be found made out of bamboo.
