Why we love Bamboo!
Welcome to our Eco-Friendly Bamboo Home Decor Store. My name is Vickie and I am the owner of DecoratewithBamboo.com. I am a Interior Designer and in the past, I have always designed homes with a lot of heavy materials such as oak, pine, mahogany, granite and marble. Then a friend of mine wanted me to decorate her home in a Tropical Theme with Bamboo accessories. As I was doing my research for the project, I learned of the many uses of bamboo and how beautiful, unique and eco-friendly it was. Bamboo is considered eco-friendly because it doesn't
cause damage to the environment when items made of bamboo are produced or disposed of. Although very popular in Asia, Bamboo is still new and upcoming in the Western World.
