Bamboo has sprouted all over. It’s being used everywhere from floorboards to tableware to inline skates and T-shirts. It comes in an amazing variety of types and sizes, and is now even used in modern building construction.
Now, Dell is using the member of the grass family as a replacement for paper, plastic and plastic foam packaging. The molded cushions that protect two computer models from damage during shipping will be made of crushed bamboo.
NewsOK points out that Dell’s bamboo comes from China’s Jiangxi province, which the company points out is far from the grazing grounds of the endangered giant panda.
