How it works:  Many products traditionally made from trees can instead be made from bamboo, leaving more forests intact to sequester carbon. You’ll jump on this like we did when you learn that 20% of global deforestation is due to tree-based toilet paper and paper towels.  This equals 40,000 trees cut down per day.  Capable of growing up to 3 ft per day, bamboo sequesters carbon in biomass and soil, removing it from the atmosphere faster than almost any other plant.  A type of grass, it has new shoots that sprout right back up after harvesting and can reach full height again in a single growing season.  It also needs 30% less water than hardwood trees.  For more information on bamboo and its critical role in combating climate change, check out Project Drawdown or The International Bamboo and Rattan Association.
