Well, it really doesn’t get much greener than bamboo – in more ways than one! Bamboo is one of the world’s most prolific and fastest growing plants. It’s actually able to reach maturity in about four years, as opposed to your usual trees which take 25 to 70 years. In fact, those cute little bright green bamboo shoots can grow between 24 and 36 inches in a 24-hour period. Wow!
Did you know bamboo is actually a tropical grass? That’s why it grows so damned quickly. Its extensive root system sends out four to six new shoots a year, naturally replenishing itself and growing up to 50 feet or even more. And because of this root system, bamboo pants reduce runoff and prevent water pollution. What a clever little grass it is.
Therefore, bamboo is one of nature’s most sustainable resources as it naturally regenerates itself – replanting and harvesting is not required. And remember, this all happens completely naturally – no pesticides, fertilisers or harsh chemicals.
Oh, and did you realise that bamboo can create up to five times more carbon than the same amount of trees, and almost 35 percent more oxygen? This means that growing bamboo actually reduces greenhouse gases!
Choosing bamboo for your bambino is as kind to the environment as it is to their sensitive skin.
