People spend a lot of their time in the office either at home or at work. It is a room, therefore, that is important to make comfortable and healthy.
It is also a good idea to make the office ‘earth friendly’ to remind yourself that without a healthy environment there would be no more jobs for you to do. One of the best ways to achieve this is to use bamboo in the office.
Bamboo is the best renewable resource because it is the fastest growing resource. It is also highly versatile in its use. Bamboo takes only 5 or 6 years to mature. It can be grown nearly anywhere and it can be grown organically. A stand of bamboo produces more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees and uses less water.
The great thing about bamboo is that although it is technically a grass, it is as hard as many hardwoods. It can be worked in the same way as wood and thus can be used as a replacement for wood. Using bamboo is a good way to stop deforestation and to fight global warming.
In the office you can start off with small items made of bamboo such as bamboo pen holders, bamboo file organizers, bamboo waste bins and then progress to bigger bamboo items for the office such as bamboo office furniture.
Another possibility is to use strand woven bamboo flooring. It can withstand high traffic and has a pleasing look like hardwood flooring. It is also a great way to make a room hypoallergenic. Similarly bamboo shades add style, privacy and insulation to an office. They also look much better than plastic blinds.
And finally, if you really want to complete the bamboo theme in the office you can buy a bamboo laptop from ASUS. The casing of the computer is made of bamboo and reduces the use of plastic in the notebook computer by 15%.
By making your office more earth friendly you will feel happier about being in the office. The psychological power of this could make you more money.
