3. Easy To Find
Bamboo products are the most available in the market, but they are also the easiest to harvest.

So, if one is making products out of them, the resource is found in abundance.
4. Sturdy & Durable
Bamboo is made up of very sturdy and durable material, and bamboo is overall a good investment if you do not wish to use plastic products and dispose of them regularly, creating a hazard to the environment.
Some proud bamboo investors have challenged people to cut a bamboo cane in half. But, apparently, it is not possible since it is ‘supremely strong.’
This is one of the reasons why Bamboo is often given as good luck present in new beginnings. So, your commencement to an auspicious event is also ‘Supremely strong.’
5. Employment For Third World Country
