6 Reasons Why Bamboo Can Save The Earth

Updated: Apr 16, 2021

We're turning our beautiful Ocean into a plastic soup. About 300 million tons of plastic are dumped into the Ocean each year. And 9% of these are recycled or reused. This means 91% of all plastic is used only once and is then thrown away - and found its way into our oceans or landfills. 

If we are not aware of what we are doing with our mother earth, we will have a future with more plastic in the oceans than fish by 2050. Human addiction to plastic use and poor waste management is killing countless birds and marine animals from entanglement or poisoning, and even chemical contamination of the fish we eat.

And a simple way we can make a difference is to switch to using sustainable products and say no to single-use plastic. So, what else can we use instead of plastic? It’s bamboo- an incredible alternative to plastic because it’s so strong and durable - but is biodegradable and natural instead.

Bamboo is a sustainable and eco-friendly material that can improve the ever-increasing depletion of natural resources in the world.

In particular, bamboo is capable of effectively replacing natural wood. The inherent properties of bamboo and advances in manufacturing techniques have resulted in high-value consumer products such as bamboo flooring and bamboo furniture alternative to laminate flooring and wood furniture, offering more benefits to the environment.

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant

Here are 6 reasons why bamboo can save the earth:

1. Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plant on earth

Bamboo can grow to full size in just 3-4 months, compared to other plants like oak, which can take 20+ years to grow. In the right conditions, it can grow up 3 feet tall in just only 24 hours. It means you can watch it grow with your naked eyes!
