Trend – Bamboo Packaging
WHY CHOOSE BAMBOO?
From clothing to building materials to toothbrushes, the bamboo trend is everywhere. Bamboo is a natural plant that is part of the grass family. It has even been showing up more and more in the packaging world due to its sustainability, its luxurious appearance, and its natural strength properties. Below, we’ve outlined the core benefits of choosing bamboo packaging and why it’s a great option for many products.
Bamboo has been called the world's most renewable material for several reasons. Bamboo grows at a surprisingly rapid rate – it can grow as quickly as up to 2 feet per day! It can be harvested in 3-7 years, which is much faster than traditional hardwoods.
Bamboo also absorbs five times more carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than a similar group of trees. Investing in bamboo packaging can drastically reduce your company’s packaging-related carbon footprint.
Additionally, bamboo cultivation promotes healthy soil by protecting against soil erosion. Harvesting bamboo is equally eco-friendly, as it doesn’t require replanting when done properly.
On top of everything, bamboo is easily recyclable and is compost-friendly! Throughout its entire life cycle, bamboo provides endless benefits to the environment, to manufacturers, and to consumers.
