Anyone trying to lead a more sustainable life will no doubt have already discovered that, in the quest to be green, bamboo is something of a wonder product. But what exactly is it about bamboo that makes it so very sustainable?
Well, first of all, bamboo grows incredibly quickly and can reach its full potential in just a couple of months, whereas it can take trees years to grow to their full size, so supplies can be quickly replenished without doing as much harm to the environment.
And not only that but it’s not necessary to use chemicals and pesticides during the harvest, which means even less harm is being done during the production cycle.
The material can also last for a very long time, so any products you buy made using bamboo won’t need to be replaced and you can continue to enjoy them for years to come, knowing that you’re helping the planet at the same time.
Another great feature of bamboo is its versatility and it can be used for a wide range of different products, everything from kitchenware to fences, furniture and even clothes, so there are lots of opportunities for you to quickly give your sustainability credentials a serious boost.
It isn’t always easy being green and the key to being more eco-friendly is to remember that it’s a journey. Start with a single step and take it from there. You can’t be zero waste overnight but every step counts and before you know it, you’ll have significantly reduced your impact on the planet. It’s time to stand up and be a hero!
