Excellent yield - growth, up to 1m/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. The 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 circa.
A hectare of bamboo generates 60 tons of raw material, (a forest only 20 tons), while traditional cotton only produces 2 tons of raw material.
Did you know that bamboo doesn't like water? I
f the 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 just simply suffices. 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!
Generates up to 35% more oxygen.
Bamboo produces up to 35 percent more oxygen than other plantations and creates less carbon dioxide emissions. One hectare of bamboo absorbs 62 tons of CO2 per year, while a forest only absorbs 15 tons in the same time span. This means that cultivating the bamboo has a positive impact on the so-called carbon footprint: it improves the air quality and the living conditions of people and it helps reducing the degradation of the environment.
The bamboo fibre is biodegradable. All types of fiber used in CORA Happywear products are biodegradable and compostable under industrial, domestic, soil, freshwater and marine conditions, so they can fully return to nature. At the end of its efficient cycle of life, the bamboo fibre can be disposed of in an environmentally friendly way.
