Bamboo is a plant, commonly grown in Asia. It is a type of grass with a hard, woody, hollow stem. Many different climates support bamboo, although it is commonly associated with the tropics. Bamboo is commonly used as a food source. While some bamboo can be eaten raw, some varieties must be cooked to remove some toxic elements.

Bamboo is used as a construction material. Bamboo is also used to make a variety of household goods like furniture, dinnerware, sporting goods, jewellery and hand bags. It is used for flooring, cutting boards, win chimes and nearly any other good that is commonly made of wood.
