Growing 1 to 4 inches in a single day, bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. Because the plant regrows quickly after harvesting and the plant's health is improved by cutting, each bamboo plant can be re-harvested every three years with zero negative impact on the environment.

Currently, all bamboo food-safe products on the market do contain some melamine for hardness and durability. The percentage is minimal, making the dishes reusable, durable, but also mostly biodegradable.
