One of the biggest problems facing the environment today is deforestation and deforestation, especially of tropical forests. We use the material from the trunks, branches and leaves to produce paper, furniture, floors, etc. Without taking into account that a tree takes about 50 years to grow and reach its fullness depending on the species. In other words, a tree that can take 50 years to grow would be felled in a few hours. If this rhythm is maintained, it is obvious that at some point the forests will be totally deforested.
It is certainly a big problem with a great solution: using alternatives. Little by little, materials are discovered that can replace the wood of the trees, in addition to the recycling process. One of the alternatives that is gaining more popularity is the use of Bamboo Moso (Phyllostachys edulis), also known as Winter Bamboo or Giant Moso Bamboo and why is this alternative possible if it is also a plant? Well ... The time has come to learn and learn a little more about this fantastic species!
We leave you some curiosities so that you can discover why at Brushboo we use this material, and that is that Bamboo Moso:
- -It is edible, although it is not the type of Bamboo that the Panda bears
- -It is fast growing (it can grow up to 30 centimeters in one day!)
- -Meets demanding standards safety, toughness and hygiene
- -is one of the Bambú families most widespread in the world
- -has a great facility to adapt to life in different environments
- -it is originally from Central china
- -produces up 30% more oxygen than other plants
- -It is a plant with the ability to achieve ecological certification when applied in production processes
Although it is true that the transport of this material between countries and continents may leave a certain environmental footprint (CO2 emissions), it is also true that during the short life of this Bamboo (about 5 years), the same plant has generated approximately three times as much oxygen to combat these emissions. It is essential to know that, although the canes can be cut around 5 or 6 years of age, the plantation remains constant and healthy at all times since the mature stems are removed but the woody structure is maintained while the mother plant continues to sprout .
The use of this plant is not current, it has been used for thousands of years for the production of different cultural and everyday materials on the Asian continent. If it is true, it is that today their consumption is exploited more given the popularity with which they have come to light its properties and benefits. Currently this type of plant is used for the production of hundreds of goods, both for daily use and for decorative or cultural use.
Our ecological toothbrushes have already joined this great revolution and we can assure you that we have not been the first, nor will we be the last.
Bamboo Moso is already a reality, the reality that best suits the environment!
Brushboo can be a good start to an eco life!
