Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can grow 3 feet in height in 24 hours under appropriate climate conditions. Unlike other woody plants, bamboo reaches maturity after only 3 to 5 years. Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants. This makes it great to use as an alternative to plastic or metal in products and it’s why we try to stock as many bamboo products as possible!
Can you believe that all of these products are made from bamboo?
Well yes they are! Bamboo is a very strong and resilient material with over 1,000 registered different uses worldwide. Bamboo is one of nature’s most sustainable resources since it is naturally regenerative. Bamboo is also softer than cotton – similar to the smooth feel of silk or cashmere.
