100% biodegradable, 100% sustainable and supremely hypoallergenic.
Unlike a tree, bamboo is a grass and being the fastest growing plant on the earth it is ready for its first harvest in as little as eighteen months after first planting. Unlike a tree which will take around 25 to 30 years.
Being a grass and not a tree bamboo is also self regenerating, just like the grass in a garden.
It also produces 35-40% more oxygen than the preferred tree of the wood pulp industry (Fir tree) as well as being supremely hypoallergenic naturally.
Most importantly it does not require planting in grade A arable lands - so leaving these free for the other main uses needed by mankind. We only have three usage for grade A arable land. Trees, livestock or crops. With growing populations globally we can ill afford to dedicate more land to trees - just for pulping . If we do that means less land for animal stock or food crops. Not a solution many would back we feel.
Bamboo will grow in degenerated lands spaces, on mountainsides and in areas where trees cannot grow any more due to soil erosion over years.
It also produces between five to six times the amount of raw material per hectare when compared to trees grown for wood pulp, so able to answer the future needs of an industry and a growing global population.
Finally as it reaches maturity for harvesting very fast, and in some cases grows three feet per day it produces 35-45% more oxygen per hectare over the preferred tree commonly used across the world for wood pulp.
All of which makes bamboo the lead raw material of the future in this sector.
All of our bamboo comes from certified bamboo farms and mills based in China.
This is because more than 40% of the world's' bamboo grows there. Our bamboo pulping mill partner is located right in the heart of the bamboo growing region of Sichuan where the locally run farms bring their canes daily or weekly for chipping and pulping.
Providing local jobs and livelihoods in the process.
We strongly feel that you're moving to bamboo based products will not alter your daily life, but your doing so will impact greatly on the future of the world we will all be living in.
It's Cool to Care.
