From the growth of the very first bamboo sprout, there is no ecological compromise. Bamboo is self-regenerating, growing to its full size in only 3-4 months. It absorbs twice as much carbon dioxide and releases approx 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than hardwood trees.
Here are some more of our favourite reasons why we think Bamboo is best:
- From the day it is planted to the day it is harvested, bamboo requires no nasty pesticides, fertilisers or herbicides.
- It offers natural cultivation that does not harm the planet or the precious soil it’s planted in.
- It never needs to be replanted as it self-regenerates from its own roots reducing any chances of local soil erosion.
- Bamboo offers unrivalled strength because of the long fibres that it is created from. This means that your bamboo clothing will last you for many years to come.
- The roots of the bamboo plant increase soil strength and conservation which allows the surrounding land to naturally stabilise, and prevents eco-disasters such as landslides.
- In comparison to fabrics like non-organic cotton, bamboo requires ⅓ less water.
- Bamboo is incredibly agile and has the incredible ability to grow from anywhere and on all terrains. Creating both eco and bio-diversity from wherever it seeds.
- Once composted, Bamboo enriches the materials beneath it and adds no added carbon to the atmosphere.
