Bamboo for a Green Environment

 

“Because of its elasticity and flexibility, bamboo is stronger than iron. That’s why it is ideal for making scaffoldings and even ladders,” says one bamboo shop owner, Haji Awwal Jaan. On one side, he also has a few wooden logs lined up. “Those are eucalyptus trunks. People buy those for building huts and cabins here. If you ask me these natural materials are best for building tropical homes but no one here thinks on those lines.”
