How Plyboo is Made
First, bamboo gets chopped down. Then, it is shipped to the different countries. After that it is compacted with an acid called formaldehyde. Next, it is cut into panels and smoothed out. To sum it all up, it is shipped to homes, businesses and stores.
Plyboo on the Campus
At our campus we have Plyboo at the front desk. When you look at this Plyboo you will notice that it has streaks of light colors and dark colors. This is not the the only variation of Plyboo. In fact there are many more types of Plyboo.

Plyboo Pros and Cons
Pros: Plyboo is very durable and flexible, this means it can easily outlast hardwood. Visual appeal, plyboo has many different colors and looks better than hardwood. This is a very sustainable choice because bamboo grows back in 5 yrs so there is no major deforestation.
Cons: Has to be shipped from far away, this means a lot of fossil fuels are used to get it to America. It can also warp if it's immature meaning if it is cut down to early the plyboo could get weird colors or patterns in it.
