Bamboo is a very quick growing grass and can easily be harvested again and again in the same spot without destroying the entire plant.
No pesticides are used in bamboo plantations.
Another feature is that bamboo bio-degrades like any other type of wood will when left out in the elements so they can be deposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.
Bamboo boards are lightweight, strong and durable.
Knives won't suffer from friction blunting (like they do on wooden or plastic cutting boards) on the compact structure of bamboo keeping them as sharp as possible.
The strength of bamboo means that heavy duty cutting can be performed without concerns of shattering or splintering the surface.
The surface is also very safe when it comes to harmful bacteria; there are no grooves or gashes where bugs can hide whilst cleaning the surface.
All foods can be cut on bamboo surfaces and with it's flat surface they can be lightly hand-washed and dried in little time.
As little moisture is absorbed, it's a lot less prone to warping and splinting like a traditional wooden chopping board.
Being lightweight you can easily transfer food around the kitchen on the board plus it's not much effort to put away like a glass or oak cutting board would be.
Bamboo chopping boards can also be used as space savers, surface protectors for hot pots and even a stylish serving tray for appetizers or bread.
Their natural colour will never fade as no dyes or staining agents are used; you can find some visually stunning designs combining two different shades of bamboo together on the one surface.
