The U.S. currently has a tremendous imbalance of trade even as we import over 50 million dollars a year worth of bamboo shoots, poles and other products.
We also have: massive unemployment, many abandoned small farms, overburdened landfills, organic waste disposal issues, receding water tables and diminishing water quality, severe soil erosion, worsening air pollution, etc.
Americans Need Jobs. Building a domestic bamboo industry from the ground up creates jobs. Cleaner, greener, and with the promise of cleaning up our soil, air and water. That's Bamboo.
The only roadblock is the political support and front end investment. This is a Bamboo Project.
A Good Idea
Growing of bamboo domestically would not only encourage more use of an environmentally-friendly material but it would also revive the United States agriculture industry.The potential of bamboo to improve the quality of life for a family or a community is vast.
