Excellent yield: up to 1m growth per day
One of the advantages of bamboo is that it grows very fast (up to 1 meter a day) without the use of any pesticides or insecticides. Bamboo grass reaches its maximum height (up to 35 m) in about eight to ten weeks. Indeed, the plant matures quickly and the harvest time is estimated to be within 4-5 years.
A hectare of bamboo generates 60 tons of raw material,, while traditional cotton only produces 2 tons of raw material.
Did you know that bamboo doesn't like water? If bamboo is watered too much, its roots rot. In fact, bamboo plants only need constant weekly watering once they have been newly planted. Afterwards, rain water is simply enough. Indeed, the bamboo grass can survive in regions with a humid and tropical weather.
In comparison to other plants, bamboo only needs a third of water and does not need an artificial irrigation system.
Bamboo is so versatile that some varieties can also grow in extreme conditions, such as in very cold climates where the temperature drops below zero in winter!
Up to 35% more oxygen
Bamboo produces up to 35% more oxygen than other plantations and creates less carbon dioxide emissions. One hectare of bamboo absorbs 62 tons of CO2 per year, while a tree forest only absorbs 15 tons in the same time span. This means that cultivating bamboo has a positive impact on the so-called carbon footprint: it improves air quality and living conditions of people, and helps reducing environment degradation.
The bamboo fibre is biodegradable. All types of fiber used in CORA Happywear products are biodegradable and compostable under industrial and domestic soil, freshwater and marine conditions. So, they can fully return to nature. At the end of its efficient cycle of life, bamboo fibre can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
