It takes only 5-6 years to grow and harvest an 80’ Moso bamboo stalk, as opposed to over 30 years for a traditional oak tree to be harvested. It takes up to 90 years for Oak to reach full maturity and it can live over 800 years. Millions of acres of trees from all over the world are cut down every year to keep up with our demands for flooring and other products.
Forests and trees are the number one source of oxygen on our planet. We need forests to produce oxygen and clean the atmosphere to help us breathe. We also know that the earth’s climate can be affected, as well as the water cycle. With this being said, animals are losing their homes at a rapid rate. Some species may be at risk for extinction.
For many residential and commercial purchasers of flooring, awareness of humanity’s impact on the life of the planet earth is just coming into focus. Recent initiatives by local utility companies, local builders and local and national governmental agencies have served to heighten awareness of every individual’s impact on the global environment. “Greening” our homes and commercial properties is turning into serious business besides being a wonderful investment for future generations.
