WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS TO THE PLANET?
Bamboo clothing is 100% biodegradable and can be completely decomposed in the soil by micro-organisms and sunlight
Bamboo only needs rain water to grow. Very little, if any, additional water is ever required.
Bamboo yields the same volume as cotton from 10% of the land area.
Bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilisers.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, so yields more often from the same plot.
As a grass, bamboo is cut not uprooted, so is good for soil – particularly as it can grow on slopes not viable for other crops.
REDUCE GREENHOUSE GASES
Bamboo plantations reduce greenhouse gases. They absorb about 5 times the amount of CO2 and produce about 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
