Bamboo Stabilizes and Nourishes the Soil:
Written by: Founder & CEO of ReNüTeq: Luke Schüette
Guadua bamboo's root system stays in tact throughout growth and harvest. When timber is harvested the root system dies and causes drastic soil instability, and the consequence is top soil erosion. Extreme cases of this have occurred all over the world in places such as India, Asia, and Central/South America. When old growth and timber farms are removed the quality top soil is lost and regrowth of any form of vegetation is limited.
Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource: Harvesting begins at 6-8 years and every year after. Producing 14 Tons useable bamboo fiber/Acre/Year. The yield is 6 times the usable biomass of timber forests.
"Save the Soil to Save the Environment. Soil degradation is the most pressing ecological challenge of our time. Agriculture can only thrive on rich soil – there is simply no other way. Regeneration of Soil is Invigoration of Life." States Sahdguru founder of Conscious Planet - India.
