Bamboo takes in nearly 5 times the amount of greenhouse gases and produces 35% more oxygen, than an equivalent stand of trees.
Bamboo requires minimal water for growing, relying in most cases on natural rainfall. Conventional cotton requires 20,000 litres (that’s 80,000 standard glasses!) to produce 1 kg of cotton.
Bamboo kun is maintained in the process of turning bamboo into fabric, so bamboo clothing is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-fungal and odour resistant. It also draws moisture away from the skin, and has a natural thermo control, keeping wearer cool and dry.
Many Bamboo products are 100% biodegradable.
Many rural communities rely on bamboo agriculture for work. Unlike non-organic cotton, it doesn’t expose them to harmful chemicals, as it grows naturally organically.
An estimated 18 million acres is lost each year globally to deforestation. Growing Bamboo creates natural sustainable, fast growing and self generating forests. Thus revitalising large tracts of land damaged through overgrazing and deforestation .
