Our All-Natural Bamboo Toothbrushes and other Bamboo Products eliminate unnecessary waste while giving you the same quality of cleaning and durability that plastic and other petroleum based products can offer. The Bamboos (Bambusoidaea) consists of 1439 different species in 116 genera. It is one of the 12 subfamilies of the grass family (Poaceae) and the only one to diversify in forests. Bamboo is a great plant for individuals concern with a green environment. 

 

Our Bamboo is 100% Hand-Grown Moso Bamboo. The largest and most widely spread of all the Bamboos. Moso can reach heights of almost 100 ft tall. No fertilizers or Pesticides are used in the cultivation or manufacturing of our products. The fields our bamboo come from have grown only bamboo for decades, so no new deforestation is required.

  • If cultivated properly, Bamboo is a fully sustainable crop and has many more benefits than can be listed on this page. It can be harvested without damaging its roots and requires only its roots to regrow, and it regrows very quickly!!
     

  • Bamboo does not require fertilizers or pesticides to grow!!! Polluted and nutrient filled freshwater run-off is a major problem, costing billions in taxes to combat (will only continue to increase) and ultimately one of the leading causes of our decline as a living healthy planet.

  • Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth! It has been recorded growing at an amazing 47.6 inches in a 24 hour period.
     

  • Bamboo is a crucial element in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. A grove of bamboo takes in more CO2 and releases 35% more oxygen than and equal amount of timber.
     

  • Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial, which means it has its own built in self defense mechanisms to fight off bacteria, fungus and even pests without the need for any chemicals.
     

  • Bamboo is so much more than just a replacement for wood and other textiles. Bamboo can be harvested in 3-5 years instead of 10-20 years for most softwoods. Bamboo easily out yields pine 6 to 1 in biomass production alone. Bamboo is also one of the strongest building materials with a tensile strength of 28,000 psi, while mild steel only measures 23,000 psi.

  • Bamboo is also a fantastic soil conservation tool. It greatly reduces erosion with a sum of stem flow rate and canopy intercept of 25%. This dramatically reduces rain run-off, preventing massive soil erosion and making it very earth friendly. Bamboo can actually revitalize once fruitless soil.
     

  • Bamboo can be eaten (new shoots), made into fiber for clothing, it can be used in concrete reinforcement, in can provide great livestock feed with the foliage being up to 22% protein, it can be machined into numerous forms of lumber, etc.
     

  • Bamboo can also tolerate extreme conditions that most plants cannot. It was actually the first plant to re-green after the atomic blast in Hiroshima in 1945.

It might be easier to make a list of what bamboo can't be used for than what it is used for...
