Bamboo is the biggest member of the grass family and has thousands of uses. It can be pressed, flattened, molded, sliced, burnt or carved. It is used as paper, flooring, musical instruments; its leaves, as livestock feed; and its shoots are popular in Asian cuisines. Bamboo supports millions of people in cottage industries worldwide.


Three Common Bamboos:
Madake, is a primary building bamboo with thick, strong hulls.
Meyeri, is thinner and more flexible.
Moso is giant, and has been used to build houses in Asia for thousands of years.
