As we head into not just another new YEAR, but a new DECADE - we can look back on the last one and truly see the progress that has been made when it comes to eco friendly, sustainable solutions that are not only good for the planet, but better for us humans.
For example - If you were to have said to someone 10 years ago that one of the smartest, most effective natural solutions to life’s everyday stinky stuff would be Bamboo Charcoal - perhaps they would have been mystified as to what you were speaking of. Or, If you would have tried to explain to folks that there was a smarter, safer, healthier way to tackle dampness and odour - than toxic, chemically laden scented sprays and room deodorizers - they may not have believed that either. Especially if you told them the solution was a very effective charcoal made from (gasp) bamboo!
But alas - as the years have passed, so has the inclination to reach for these old outdated stink solutions! Today, most of us engage in trying to live a greener, more eco conscious and earth friendly lifestyle where our personal carbon footprint is visibly diminished. One of the things that has become MORE visible however - is the role of bamboo in nearly every facet of daily life around the globe.
Bamboo is actually considered a ‘woody grass’ that that is native to Southeast Asia and has been thriving there for millions of years. But honestly? Depending on the species, one can find bamboo taking root just about anywhere. One of the reasons why Bamboo is so popular and dependable is that its growth rate makes it incredibly sustainable, readily available and ever renewable. With some plants growing as much as 35 inches in a single 24 hour period, bamboo is considered one of the fastest growing plants on the planet. (GASP!) 35 inches a day? THAT. IS. REMARKABLE.
Beyond being a delicious meal for the beloved Panda Bear - Bamboo has been used for thousands of years in textiles, furniture, and clothing. It is also considered one of the strongest plants in the world. Did you know that bamboo has a higher tensile strength that steel? (Yes, we just heard you gasp AGAIN!)
Certain species of Bamboo are stronger than wood, brick or concrete while others remain pliable enough for durable, yet intricate work. This means that bamboo is one of the cleanest, greenest ways to build anything from boats, paper, flooring and furniture to smaller everyday items like utensils, toothbrushes, musical instruments and clothing. Honestly, its uses are endless and continually growing in the modern world. The best news is, that unlike wood and the growth cycle of trees - it is rapidly growing and sustainable.
Our deodorizing products at Ever Bamboo are made from Bamboo Charcoal.
Harvested after 5 years of growth, the bamboo is heated in ovens of up to 1200 degrees Celsius.
Bamboo Charcoal benefits the environment by reducing pollutant residue, and has a unique and unparalleled absorption property. Because of its naturally occurring porous nature - Bamboo Charcoal pulls moisture and odours from the air and actually eliminates them. The pouches - when reactivated by 2 hours of direct sunlight on each side - dry out, and can then go on to fight moisture and odour for up to a full year with this repeated, proper care.
But that’s not the end of the line for this magical bamboo charcoal. Once a year has passed - you can cut the pouches open and sprinkle the granules into your terrarium or garden where they will go on to regulate moisture in the soil - keeping your plants healthy & happy. Talk about a life well lived. Way to go bamboo!
We believe in the powerful properties of Nature. At Ever Bamboo our goal is to make everyone aware that they have a choice in how they tackle must and odour. Mother Nature is much smarter than we give her credit for. And Bamboo gets an A+ in our book!
