Bamboo and the Environment

Bamboo

Did you know…

Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on earth

Bamboo is a highly sustainable plant. Bamboo can grow to full size in just 3-4 months, compared to standard trees which can take 30+ years to grow.

In the right conditions, it can grow 3 feet tall in 24 hours which means you can literally watch it grow with your own eyes! This makes it a super sustainable alternative due to its naturally renewing properties.

Plus, nasty pesticides and chemicals aren’t required when harvesting bamboo. This means the cultivation is natural, and never harms the environment.

Bamboo is safe and hygienic

Bamboo fibres are naturally anti-bacterial without needing any toxic chemical treatments, all thanks to its substance called ‘bamboo kun’.

Bamboo kun is found in bamboo fibre and is an antimicrobial bio-agent which gives bamboo its natural antibacterial properties. This prevents bacteria and microbes growing on bamboo products making it the perfect material for your babies skin.

Bamboo is Great for the Environment

Bamboo forests have enormous positive benefits for the environment as this incredibly productive plant efficiently stores carbon.

Bamboo absorbs up to 3x more carbon dioxide than trees, which is why they are known to act as carbon sinks. It also generates a vast amount of oxygen, totalling up to 30% more than most plants and trees.

Finally, bamboo helps protect biodiversity and endangered species by creating homes for a variety of different animals. Bamboo forests save and protect the species living in that forest, by providing both homes and food. Don’t forget the giant pandas who rely on bamboo alone!
