You can watch the grass grow
The first big advantage compared to cotton and wood is the speed at which Bamboo grows. It can grow up to one meter in a day. So you really can watch the grass grow. With this speed it yields 10 times more material with a single m² than cotton could in the same amount of time. And because a bamboo plant keeps growing after being cut, the ecosystem does not have to deal with the problem of cleared woodland.
Bamboo is always “organic”
Bamboo is good for farming not only because of its high productivity. The plant itself produces perfect conditions for environmentally friendly and sustainable farming. Bamboo matches the requirements of organic labels on its own. It is possible to forgo pesticides because the plant can protect itself with so-called Bamboo-Kun. This antibacterial substance keeps fungal infestation away and lowers the risk of pests. Bamboo also produces its own manure. Just let the leaves fall on the ground and there’s no need for manure anymore. Because of Bamboo’s ability to store water very effectively, it is not necessary to water the bamboo. Perfect for saving a lot of water and energy.
Take a deep breath with bamboo
Not only is Bamboo ideal for environmentally friendly farming and highly productive, it is also a real CO2 catcher! Bamboo absorbs up to 30% more CO2 than cotton! So take a breath and make your decision.
