Bamboo is a renewable resource due to its ability to quickly regenerate. Compared to other trees that can take many years to recover from harvesting, bamboo can regrow 1 to 4 inches in 24 hours without fertilizers. This makes bamboo the most sustainable material in the world.
Bamboo absorbs carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than other trees. Hence, it helps create fresher air and minimizes air pollution.
Since the growth rate of bamboo becomes stronger after harvesting, it can be collected every four months without causing any harm to the tree or its ecosystem.
Whilst using correct harvesting methods, bamboo can regenerate itself and promote the growth of new plants. It also contributes to the vitality of the ecosystem around the bamboo bush.
As a sustainable plant, bamboo is a natural alternative to plastic and the perfect material to make reusable, biodegradable straws.
