Go Green! Bamboo Tiki Masks at Tikimaster.com

Tikimaster.com has a huge selection of tiki masks, but did you know that they carry a very unique tiki mask that is made out of bamboo? Our skilled craftsmen select just the perfect piece of bamboo and then carefully hand carve a one of a kind tiki face into the bamboo. After, the carvers meticulously hand paint the masks to add greater detail.

Why buy a bamboo tiki mask? Bamboo is a very green, earth friendly medium to use for tiki masks because it is a renewable resource that grow back very quickly. Here are a few other great reasons to purchase a bamboo tiki mask:

Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant on this planet. It grows one third faster than the fastest growing tree. Some species can grow up to 1 meter per day. One can almost "watch it grow". This growth pattern makes it easily accessible in a minimal amount of time. Size ranges from miniatures to towering culms of 60 meters.

Bamboo is a critical element in the balance of oxygen / carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Bamboo i s the fastest growing canopy for the regreening of degraded areas and generates more oxygen than equivalent stand of trees. It lowers light intensity and protects against ultraviolet rays and is an atmospheric and soil purifier.

Bamboo is an enduring natural resource. Bamboo can be selectively harvested annually. Bamboo provided the first re-greening in Hiroshima after the atomic blast in 1945. Thomas Edison successfully used a carbonized bamboo filament in his first experiment with the light bulb.

So, even though St. Patrick's day has come and gone, bamboo is a great reason to stay green all year long! Bamboo tiki masks are all the rage and good for the environment. Be sure to check out all of our tiki masks at tikimaster.com!
