What plant could possibly be cooler than you?
I'll give you a hint - There's a black and white bear that loves to eat it.
What is it??
It's Bamboo and yes it's cooler than you.
Why is bamboo the Beyonce of plants?
1. What's that saying? It's like watching grass grow? Not with bamboo. It can grow up to 3 feet in one day! Talk about a growth spurt.
Take a look at this time-lapsed video of bamboo growing - mind blown.
2. Move over Maple. Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen than trees.
3. Stronger than steel. Yes, you read that right (and we're from the Steel City).
4. Naturally antibacterial - which is different than antimicrobial. You can read what the difference is here.
5. Bamboo fabric is LUSCIOUS with a capital L. Bamboo fabric is THE SOFTEST THING EVER. If you haven't tried it - you must.
And we at SilverSport happen to have some amazing bamboo products.
Our Bamboo Tee - literal heaven.
Our Ultimate Fitness towel - take me to church honey.
6. Bamboo is edible - and not just for pandas! Bamboo shoots - from very, very young bamboo - are commonly used in Chinese and Thai cooking.
