Every decision in your life has direct and indirect consequences. If you choose Bamigo then both will be positive. Direct consequences: amazing comfort and great appearance. The indirect effect relates to the environment. But to what extent is bamboo clothing actually environmentally friendly?
Processing bamboo into bamboo fibre can be very unfriendly to the environment. However, that is not the case with us. At Bamigo, the crushing and chemical processing of bamboo stems is done in a closed circuit. As a result, the chemicals never end up in the environment.
Bamboo benefits for the environment
The unique properties of bamboo even have a positive impact on nature. Below you will find some benefits to the environment:
- Bamboo has a high productivity
- Bamboo roots make the soil more fertile
- Bamboo roots prevent erosion
- Compared to cotton, little artificial watering is required and no pesticides are used in the growth of bamboo
Bamboo roots are good in several respects: they prevent erosion by retaining soil. The branched structure of the bamboo roots also loosens the soil, making it more fertile. This forms the basis for healthy plants. No pesticides are used. The soil does not have to recover after harvesting bamboo and therefore remains valuable.
Water absorbing capacity
In addition, bamboo absorbs over three times more moisture than cotton. This means that little artificial watering is required. Certainly in view of the water scarcity in some areas of the world, it is important to use water efficiently.
Bamboo also has a high productivity. This is because bamboo grows again after cutting. In fact, it grows incredibly rapidly. This means that a relatively large amount of bamboo can be harvested in a small area. If you choose bamboo clothing from Bamigo, then you choose a sustainable natural source.
