Bamboo is better for the earth
Replacing disposables with bamboo material can have a major effect on the rate of deforestation of hardwood forests. Bamboo fibre is a far superior alternative to disposables and the best environmentally‑preferable solution for disposable products for a number of reasons:
- Regenerated cellulose fiber made from bamboo is a bio‑based material and exceptionally soft, making it ideal for a baby’s sensitive skin.
- Bamboo is the fastest‑growing grass on the planet and can shoot up a yard or more a day, making it an endurable natural resource. Bamboo is ready for harvesting in 2‑4 years (as opposed to 30+ years for trees).
- Bamboo does not require replanting after harvesting because of its vast root network.
- Bamboo crops do not require significant amounts of water, In fact, rain water is usually sufficient for growth. The grass does not require the use of fertilisers or pesticides.
- Bamboo generates 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
- Bamboo fibre is 100% biodegradable.
What About the Pandas?
The species of plant used for processing fiber is a different variety to the ones pandas consume. Deforestation, agricultural encroachment and road‑building remain the biggest threats to panda habitats.
Better for Baby
Regular baby wipes are a gleaming shade of white because they are bleached with chlorine or other harsh chemicals. These chemicals are the last thing your baby’s sensitive skin needs. Organic brands like Pure Beginnings also ensure that the ingredients added to the wipes are all of a natural and organic source. Organic Aloe extract is included for its soothing and anti-bacterial properties and Organic Tea Tree oil works as a natural antiseptic and fungicide.
