Bamboo can be used in a variety of ways, including as food and as a substitute for wood, building, and building materials.

World Bamboo Day is celebrated on September 18 to raise awareness about the conservation of this extremely useful plant. Conceptualized by the World Bamboo Organization (WBO), this day also promotes the bamboo sector by highlighting its concerns.

Bamboo is a fast growing plant and has many traditional uses. One of the main benefits of bamboo is that it costs next to nothing to grow, so even a small source of revenue translates into a profit. The pulped fibers of various species of bamboo, particularly Dendrocalamus strictus and Bambusa bamboos are used to make premium paper. This makes it a commercially viable crop.

Story

The World Bamboo Organization officially declared the day at the 8th World Bamboo Congress held in Bangkok in 2009. WBO wants to bring the amazing properties of bamboo to the fore by celebrating World Bamboo Day.

Importance

By observing World Bamboo Day, WBO aims to raise awareness about the potential uses of bamboo. The promotion of the new culture of bamboo in developing regions around the world can generate considerable economic development.

In fact, bamboo can be used as a substitute for many unsustainable resources. Found in Southeast Asia, bamboo can be used in a variety of ways, including as food and as a substitute for wood, building, and building materials.

The amazing thing about bamboo is that it doesn’t require chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers to grow and thrive. Its dead leaves also provide the necessary nutrients which are recycled into the soil. These properties of bamboo make it very environmentally friendly. One of the main environmental benefits of bamboo is that it can be planted to reclaim severely degraded sites and wastelands.

Theme

The theme for this year’s World Bamboo Day has yet to be announced.
