Eco-Friendly Bamboo Materials & Fabrics
Sustainability is a vitally important goal as society aims to reduce our carbon footprint, decrease stripping natural resources, and bring the planet as far back to equilibrium as we can. Sustainable farming, local food production, increasing clean energy, and reducing carbon emissions are all steps in the right direction. A lesser known, but just as effective piece of the puzzle, is using bamboo for materials and fabrics.
The environmental footprint involved with harvesting materials from trees is well documented. Bamboo provides an alternative that is environmentally friendly on a number of levels. For example, it grows incredibly fast, allowing for more efficient harvests. Remarkably, the roots of the last crop stay in the ground, making the next crop more durable. You also get twenty times the amount of material from a bamboo harvest, compared to a harvest of standard trees. As if this isn’t enough, bamboo also produces significantly more oxygen than trees.
The quality of the product is also top notch: believe it or not, bamboo is stronger than steel! The material can be used to manufacture a wide variety of products, from construction to keyboards and even clothing. Because bamboo grows best in tropical areas, it provides an excellent economic boost to parts of the world that have high rates of poverty.
The benefits of bamboo are astounding, to the point that it almost sounds too good to be true. But it’s all real, and such a huge help towards creating a more sustainable planet. With societies sharply focused on creating a better environment for future generations, we can expect bamboo to continue increasing in popularity through the century.
