Why Bamboo?

Bamboo is a remarkable and highly versatile natural resource

 

For centuries bamboo has been used in Asia in a multitude of occasions, including cooking, construction, transportation, textiles and medicine

It is fairly new to the Western world, and was discovered for its wide range of benefits and as an eco-friendly solution to many of our modern needs

Bamboo is a wonderful green resource that is highly beneficial both in the way we want to live and to the environment

Sustainability

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Once harvested, bamboo it can replenish itself within a year. It is a naturally resilient plant, which does not need fertilizers to boost its growth, or pesticides since bamboo is naturally pest-resistant. This marks it out from cotton or timber, which needs to be replanted at every harvest and requires extensive spraying and watering to achieve optimal growth.

Eco Friendly

Since bamboo does not require any chemicals and needs very little water to grow, it is an environmental wonder-plant. Bamboo also absorbs more carbon dioxide from the air than either cotton or timber. It also releases more oxygen into the environment which improves air quality. Cotton farming, on the other hand, famously requires extensive irrigation and chemical spraying - a single cotton T-shirt can use up to 2700 litres of water in the growing process!  Bamboo is by far the greener option.

Biodegradable

Bamboo is 100% natural and biodegradable which gives conscientious consumers real peace of mind. Once you have no further use for a bamboo product you can rest easy, knowing that it will return to the Earth leaving minimal environmental impact. So much better to enjoy a product that has a small environmental footprint and leaves barely a trace
