Bamboo grows very quickly. Some species up to one meter per day. The production yield of bamboo is many times greater than that of trees on the same land area. Therefore, several harvests per year are also possible. New stems grow out, which makes replanting unnecessary. This in turn has a positive influence on soil stability. The plant is also naturally resistant to insects and fungi, and can therefore be grown without pesticides. Bamboo is a better alternative for the climate. It gives a high oxygen production and it absorbs more carbon dioxide and produces more than 30% more oxygen than trees. Bamboo is a fantastic renewable material that grows quickly without the need of added fertilizer. The perfect choice for disposables such as toothbrushes, combs and similar products.
The most important benefits of bamboo are:
Bamboo has a long lifespan, is hard, durable and durable
Due to the compact fiber structure, bamboo is harder than many other types of wood
Is very stable, due to little shrinkage / expansion
Bamboo thrives well under both wet and dry conditions
Bamboo contains no toxic substances and causes no allergies
