In 2002 Totally Bamboo company owners, Tom & Joanne Sullivan, designed and introduced the world's first bamboo cutting board. Their search for a lightweight, ecologically viable material to replace oak in the manufacturing of "Hollywood Chairs", their luxury customized director's chairs they manufacture and supply to the movie and theater industries, introduced them to bamboo. They experimented with bamboo, long known for its strength versus weight ratio and the resulting chair was much lighter and also stronger than the oak they had been using. Intrigued with using such a renewable and sustainable material, they set out to design products using their "engineered bamboo" and in doing so, developed the world's first bamboo cutting board. Bamboo, they discovered, is harder than maple, making it perfect for a cutting surface. Not only is bamboo hard and lightweight, is it one of the fastest growing, sustainable materials on the planet. Bamboo is a grass that produces more oxygen than a hardwood forest of comparable size. For their products, Totally Bamboo uses only Moso bamboo, which is harvested after the bamboo has grown for at least 5 years - this ensures the fibers are mature, which adds to its strength and density. The Moso bamboo has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself and therefore it does not require replanting, making it one of the most renewable resources known.
