Universally, we create a scary 300 million tons of plastic every year.
And a shocking 9% of this is recycled or reused. This means that 91% of all plastic is only used once, and then ends up getting thrown away- and finding its way into our oceans or landfills. This is a huge amount which is why scientists predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet and can grow to full size in just 3-4 months, compared to standard trees which can take 30+ years to grow.
In optimised conditions, it can grow 3 feet tall in 24. This makes it a super sustainable alternative due to its naturally renewing properties. No chemicals or pesticides are required in growing bamboo.
Known as ‘green steel’ for its versatility and strength in construction, entire homes are now being built entirely from this robust plant. Astounding strength, extended lifespan and light in weight, your bamboo products can be used time and time again with little worry of them deteriorating.
Bamboo kun is found in bamboo fibre and is an antimicrobial bio-agent which gives bamboo its natural antibacterial properties. This prevents bacteria and microbes growing on bamboo products making it the perfect plant for naturally hygienic products such as bamboo straws and cutlery, keeping them sterile and fresh.
