Bamboo



Bamboo is a hot trend.  Why?  It is a fast growing eco friendly plant.  It can grow 3-4 feet per day without fertilizers or pesticides, needs only a little water and releases more oxygen into the atmosphere than similar sized trees.  

It is being used for clothing, sheets, towels, building materials, home supplies, etc. and even, makeup brushes. Ecotools Makeup Brushes have bamboo handles.  The bristles are synthetic taklon and are 100% cruelty free.  The metal on the brushes is made from recycled aluminum. And they are inexpensive. You can get a 6 piece set for $8.98 at Target.

It is a beautiful plant and can create nice screening but, think twice about planting it in your garden. It will take over and invade everywhere!

Have a Beautiful Day!
