Bamboo can grow more than 3 feet per day

Did you know?

Bamboo can be very sustainable if grown in the right conditions. It is a fast growing grass and is very low maintenance as it doesn’t need fertilizers or large amounts of water.

It doesn’t need to be replanted as it self-generates from it’s own roots. Also, it produces 35% more oxygen than other hardwood trees.

Bamboo is ideal when used in it’s raw original form, for furniture, or objects like toothbrushes or cutlery. It is an eco-friendly alternative to other types of hardwood trees like Oak (which grows much slower).

However, be aware than many bamboo fabrics on the market are a form of rayon where the manufacturing process is highly intensive and involves many harmful chemicals.

Although the production of bamboo is more sustainable than cotton, the manufacturing process of bamboo fabrics uses highly toxic chemicals, and is not considered a sustainable solution.

In conclusion, choose bamboo products when they are made of raw bamboo, like furniture, toothbrushes, cutlery, and other objects. It is a sustainable alternative to most woods! Easy! 😉
