Is Bamboo Really Green?

Bamboo baby clothes, bamboo bowls, bamboo this and bamboo that – bamboo really is ‘in’ at the moment. The thing is, most of us don’t really know anything about bamboo at all. As far as we are concerned, bamboo used to be just that stuff that pandas eat and that’s about it. Now that more of us are trying to adopt a more eco-friendly lifestyle, however, we are being confronted with all manner of bamboo products. I mean, how many of our mothers bought ‘bamboo baby leggings’? Not many I bet! But new generations of mums and dads want green baby and ethical baby products and don’t want to contribute to ruining the planet for their children and grandchildren.

So is bamboo really green?

Are organic bamboo clothes as eco-friendly as other organic baby clothes, for example? Well the thing about bamboo is that it grows incredibly quickly and one of the features which makes it particularly appealing is that buying bamboo products means you are actually saving water! Cotton crops need loads of water to grow. The amount of water one person alone will drink in three years, is how much water it takes ust to make just one T-shirt! So if you want to help to conserve water, then buy bamboo! And with climate change and the resultant global warming, water conservation is going to become even more important in the future.

Did you know too that bamboo has a negative carbon footprint? Picture a forest of random trees.Now imagine a forest of bamboo trees. Incredibly, the bamboo forest will produce 35% more oxygen than the other forest and this is what gives bamboo its negative carbon footprint. And whilst the bamboo goes about producing all this oxygen, it absorbs over 12 tons of CO2 per hectare – way more efficient and eco-friendly than your average hardwood tree!

Another important feature bamboo has is that it doesn’t need nasties like insecticides or pesticides to grow. This means that bamboo crops are safer for the environment and for the farm-workers handling the end product.

The method of making, let’s say, organic cotton clothes and bamboo baby clothes is pretty much the same and so are the effects on the environment. What it all boils down too though is that although bamboo doesn’t have a particularly green manufacturing process, everything else about bamboo is significantly more environmentally friendly. It is without doubt grown and produced in a renewable and sustainable way.

So in brief, bamboo is green because it

  • grows naturally
  • grows fast
  • is kind to skin
  • is 100% biodegradable
  • Is antibacterial
  • doesn’t need much water to grow
  • is sustainable
