Green Bamboo

Why Bamboo? 


Bamboo, a woody evergreen plant, is one of the fastest growing species on the planet. Its abundance and amazing growth rate has captured global attention and these properties have enabled it to become an important component in the regreening of our degraded land. Releasing approximately 35% more oxygen than its equivalent in trees and producing a greater yield of raw material (10-30% annual increase in biomass versus 2 to 5% for trees), this renewable resource is quickly becoming one of the most environmentally friendly materials today.

Biodegradable and Recyclable


Bamboo paper is 100% biodegradable and can be recycled in your blue box along with other traditional paper products

Bamboo Paper and Printing


The bamboo plant produces a beautiful paper with a natural look and feel. Bamboo bags are strong, sturdy and superior in quality. They can be hot-stamped, offset-printed and flexo-printed.

Renewable


With a harvesting rate of three to five years (verses a 10-20 year rate for most softwoods), bamboo ranks as one of the fastest growing woody plants we have today. Highly adaptable, it is able to grow in many diverse climates ranging from sea level up to 12,000 feet on every continent (minus the poles). There are over 1,500 different species growing wild across the planet with varying speeds of growth some even growing as fast as two inches an hour or one and a half meters per day.

Minimal Soil Disruption


Unlike tree deforestation, the proper harvesting of bamboo results in little to no topsoil disruption. The ability to farm this material without interference to the environment drastically reduces the possibility of damage caused by erosion.

A Super Strong Substrate


Bamboo is the strongest growing woody plant on earth with a tensile strength superior to mild steel (withstands up to 52,000 pounds of pressure per square inch).
