It’s no secret that things are heating up. Global warming is reaching dangerous levels, and while more people are becoming passionate about reducing damage to the planet, there is still a LOT to be done.
We are in the middle of a “green revolution”—a transformation being driven by individuals, companies, and even entire industries that are realizing it’s past time to reduce the adverse effects we have on the climate. Going green isn’t just about planting trees and recycling; it’s about finding long-term ways of giving back to the earth with sustainable solutions so that everyone can continue to benefit from the goodness our planet has to offer.
Agroforestry is a way of using specific plants, like bamboo, to create environmental, social, and health benefits. By leaning into alternative resources, we can reduce our carbon footprint and avoid devastating global warming effects.
Absolutely. Bamboo has been used for centuries for clothing, medicine, artwork, construction…just about anything imaginable. And the best part is that, not only is it versatile enough to make skyscrapers or bridges, it also does wonders for the environment.
That’s where Green Resources comes in. We’re all about finding ways to help the environment. That’s why it’s no surprise that bamboo is our specialty. It’s a beautiful, easy-to-grow plant that gives back in many ways. While many recognize it for its beauty in landscaping, it is also a very valuable ecological and industrial resource. Not only does it help with erosion management and soil remediation, bamboo is a popular building material, easing the burden on forests worldwide. Plus, it acts as a natural reservoir that absorbs CO2 emitted in the air.
When you select products that are made with bamboo, you are making the conscious choice to use products that are made from sustainable natural resources. Bamboo grows quickly, helps with soil stability and erosion control, provides a wind break and a natural wildlife habitat, and offers an option for forestry-based products. That’s in addition to the clean-air benefits it delivers.
Every time you purchase bamboo products, you’re helping preserve natural resources. You’re giving the planet time to find balance in a world that’s increasingly demanding more and more of her.
Jump over to our All About Bamboo page to learn about different environmental and health benefits, species, and growing techniques, as well as ways you can help. With bamboo, we can propel the green movement forward even faster.
It’s a pretty big undertaking, but at GRC, we’re passionate about helping others and helping the planet. We believe that, working together, we can achieve worldwide balance in the consumption, production, and displacement of natural resources for a sustainable and renewable ecosystem.
The earth has been trying to tell us things are out of balance. Global warming and carbon emissions are at alarming levels, and not enough is being done to stop—or even slow down—their effects.
At Green Resources, we’re working hard to reduce our carbon footprint—and we’re helping others learn how to do the same. Our agroforestry program is our way of giving back to the environment, stopping soil erosion, providing shelter for regional wildlife, releasing more oxygen into the air, and letting Mother Nature know we care.
