Why Bamboo instead of plastic?
Because bamboo is an environmentally friendly material, bio degradable and reduces the carbon footprint
Advantages of using bamboo for personal care products:
- It is renewable and bamboo forests can be grown in a few years.
- Its naturally waxy surface does not require painting; making it safe from health hazards caused by paints (they contain toxic substances).
- Bamboo can be smoked in its own resin making its surface impenetrable to insects thereby protecting it from insect infestation.
- Pesticides and other chemicals need not be used while cultivating bamboo making it more ecofriendly.
- Pollution is also reduced with bamboo cultivation as the plants reduce up to 35% carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and produce more oxygen.
- it can be recycled and does not have disposal problems.
- The roots in bamboo help control soil erosion as it creates a water barrier. Developing countries use bamboo to protect their crops and villages from washing away.
- Bamboo consumes high quantities of nitrogen and this can help reduce water pollution.
