Sectors in which bamboo is mostly used are:
Investing in bamboo is proving to be a winning choice for many companies. According to Mauro Lajo, the vice president of Forever Bambù, this plant can be a valid ally of the European Union in the fight against plastic pollution.
Furthermore, bamboo is a resource that can bring jobs and wealth to the countries where it is harvested or processed. The plant, after being cut, perishes immediately. For this reason, the transformation and manufacturing process must take place on site, thus bringing benefits to the local economy.
Furthermore, this plant does not need special care to grow and its cultivation improves the quality of groundwater.
In fact, bamboo can become a natural plant for phytoremediation.
The colours, dimensions and particularities of bamboo make it an element that can be used in tourism.
Above all abroad, bamboo is conceived as a tourist attraction. In fact, among the bamboo forests that most intrigue tourists we find: the Bamboo Forest of Arashiyama (or of Sagano) at Kyoto, Shunan Bamboo Forest in China, the Nanshan Zhuhai in China, the Grand National Bamboo Forest in China, theHokokuji Grove in Japan, the Penglipuran Bamboo Forestin Indonesia, and the Bambouseraie de Prafrance in France.
In Italy the importance of this plant has been understood, the cultivation of which is perfect both for the environment and the economy and for tourism.
The location where bamboo captures the attention of tourists is above all the Masone Labyrinth at Fontanellato (Parma), the largest existing labyrinth made up of about 200,000 bamboo plants that are structured along a path of over 3 kilometres. In Italy the forests, groves, oases or bamboo gardens can also be admired in Parco Segantini (Milano), at Bosco di Rovato (Brescia), at Villa Carlotta (Como), at the Parco del Castello Mirandolo (Torino).
In southern Italy it is definitely Borgo del Bambù,in Cilento, the only location that uses bamboo for tourism in the awareness that this plant is a panacea for personal well-being. At the Borgo it is possible to visit the bamboo grove and stay in one of the wonderful apartments of the structure which are surrounded by greenery.
Borgo del Bambù is surrounded by almost 4 hectares of giant bamboo which captures 68 tons of CO2 per year.
The bamboo forest it is an oasis of peace and relaxation, perfect for unwinding and regenerating. Precisely for this reason, the Bamboo Bathing Forest is the wellness package that regenerates the senses.
Borgo del Bambù, moreover, is projected to invest in the bamboo grove so that it will become a center of interest from a tourist point of view,but also economically, as the bamboo grown at the Borgo will be exploited in food,furniture and design .
