Bamboo packaging is a range of sustainable packaging made from Bamboo, a fast-growing, oxygen-making, carbon-dioxide sucking GRASS.
One of the key benefits of bamboo packaging is that bamboo is a grass which means it can be harvested above the roots. It then renews itself really quickly (it actually holds the Guiness World Record as the fastest growing plant in the world)
Being #TreeFree is important because when trees are cut down to make paper, the whole tree has to die - roots and all. 29 basketball courts of forests are lost to packaging and fabrics EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND. [Source: Canopy Planet]
We have to urgently find sustainable alternatives to paper and card and that's what FSC Bamboo is!
Bamboo, like any plant, absorbs CO2 (a greenhouse gas) and releases oxygen, except that it does this better than most other plants, and way better than trees.
By choosing Bamboo packaging you're supporting the sustainable management of these amazing carbon sinks which play a crucial role in combatting global warming.
Once it can’t be used any more bamboo packaging can be curbside recycled with paper and cardboard, OR composted.
Because it’s made completely from plant fibres and printed with soy-based inks, it will safely and relatively quickly biodegrade in a compost. Make sure to remove any labels or tape first though, unless they are compostable like these ones.
Our bamboo packaging is not more expensive than paper or card. As a bamboo packaging company, we offer affordable wholesale prices because we believe eco friendly bamboo packaging should be affordable to businesses of all sizes.
