*Bamboo is fast-growing and ready to harvest in 4 to 5 years, compared to 30 to 50 years for typical lumber trees. When harvested, bamboo's extensive root systems stay alive and the stands regenerate, preventing erosion, preserving soil quality, improving watersheds, and avoiding other problems caused by clear-cut logging. Bamboo produces 35% more oxygen per acre than hardwood trees and absorbs large quantities of carbon dioxide, a gas blamed for global warming.

I absolutely love these bamboo blocks. Not only are they made out of a renewable resource but they are beautiful, feel great and have a good weight to them, similar to the blocks used in my college Iyengar teacher training program.
