Although in-tune with the latest trends, Urban Factory presents a line of eco-products, like this 2.0 usb bamboo keyboard.

Key infos about bamboo :

Bamboo is disease free and naturally resistant to mildew and mold.

Bamboo is a fast growing grass and quickly reaches maturity in about four years.

Growing bamboo is eco-friendly. Bamboo plantations have no need for large petroleum tractors to plant seeds and cultivate the soil. Bamboo doesn't need agricultural maintenance because it grows naturally. Growing bamboo reduces greenhouse gases, because bamboo plants absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.

Bamboo can absorb 5 times more carbon than the same amount of trees and 35% more oxygen. Bamboo naturally absorbs 2/3 more carbon dioxide and releases 2/3 more oxygen than any other plant.

Bamboo clothing and the plant are totally decomposable in the soil by micro organisms and natural light from the sun. This is all done because bamboo is 100% bio degradable and doesn't decompose into any pollutants.

    I LOVE the bamboo keyboard! Where are they available and how much do they cost?

    I have a problem: You say, "Bamboo can create 5 times more carbon than the same amount of trees ". Do you mean "Bamboo can ABSORB 5 times...?" It make s a big difference. Why would we want to create 5x more CO2 for more greenhouse effect???
