Bamboo is such a beautiful and versatile material, and cultivating it can be done quickly as they grow up to two inches an hour! Bamboo can be grown on less fertile lands where even trees can’t be grown. This amazing grassy material stands at the heart of the recent revolution in green products and has been helping in reducing the non-degradable content found in landfills and oceans. Here are our favorite bamboo-based products!
It might seem hassle free to use a single–use plastic cutlery, but plastic utensils are not biodegradable and will stay in landfill for HUNDEREDS of years.

Made from natural bamboo, this makes them antimicrobial and antibacterial. It also comes with an organic cotton pouch so you can store a set in your car, bag or carry them enough hassle free!
Regular plastic bandages are stiff and have the tendency to peel off which means you’ll be creating more waste before you know it!

By contouring to the curves of the skin, this reduces the likelihood of peeling off and consequently, reduces your waste!
