Brighten your smile while saving the planet with our bamboo toothbrush!
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet. This makes it a viable substitute for timber and tropical hardwoods. Bamboo grows at an incredibly fast rate, some species grow up to one and a half meters a day, and can be harvested in 3-5 years. Bamboo also requires no fertiliser to grow or chemicals to produce it. All these factors make it a sustainable renewable resource.
The origin of the word Bamboo comes from the Malay word "Mambu". Bamboo belongs to the Bambusoideae subfamily of the perennial evergreen grass family Poaceae (Gramineae). Of all grasses, bamboo is the largest and the only one that can diversify into forest. Although bamboo is a grass, many of the larger woody bamboo species are very tree-like in appearance and are often called "bamboo trees". Bamboo has always been regarded as sacred, symbolizing grace, strength, flexibility, endurance and longevity.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet which makes it a viable substitute for timber and tropical hardwoods. Bamboo grows at 2 inches an hour. Some species grow one and a half meters a day. It is in other words a very fast renewable resource for which no trees have to be cut down and no chemicals are added to produce it. bamboo can be harvested in 3-5 years versus 10-20 years for most softwoods. It requires no fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn’t need to be replanted.
