I like wood. But do you know what I like every more than wood? Bamboo!
It has so many uses just like hardwood except since it’s a grass it grows back when you cut it down. It also grows super fast! So how about including gifts made of bamboo this holiday! It has all the same warm tactile qualities of wood but is also renewable. You can get a bamboo plant. I have somehow manage to keep one alive since September. Do you like handmade gifts? How about decorating and stringing some bamboo beads. Do you know they even make fabric out of bamboo?
Or choose from the follow Amazon finds and a zillion other cool things made of bamboo you can find online!
