You may have heard this a million types but i am here to tell it to you again, because that is how important it is. ‘SMALL CHANGES DO MAKE BIG DIFFERENCES’ not immediately but in the long run? A big YES!
In this blog let us learn how you can start your bamboo journey with just 3 basic bamboo products.
First things first, what is bamboo and why is bamboo all the rage ?
Bamboo is a type of grass and it one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Yes! So wait, how is bambo sustainable? Bamboo grows up to 35 inches a day and 1.5 inches an hour, requires no fertilizer, and self-regenerates from its own root system, making replanting unnecessary. These characteristics make bamboo an environmentally friendly and sustainable material.
Moving on to 3 bamboo products that YOU can actually choose to start your bamboo journey with.
1. Toilet rolls - Some of us absolutely cannot do without it, some of us are looking for a better option than tree based toilet rolls. Whatever your reasons are, bamboo is the answer. There are many options in the market that sell bamboo based toilet rolls. They are made with bamboo fibres, they are soft on the skin, unbleached - meaning they are not bleached to make white like tree based toilet rolls. Since they are based of bamboo, they definitely do not lead to deforestation.
It could be surprising to know that tree based toilet rolls exist, atleast I was when I found out but hey, you should try them out and switch to bamboo!
2. Bamboo Toothbrush - Here is a thought for you, every toothbrush that you have ever used is out there, scary right? Exactly my thought too. Switch to bamboo toothbrush. The handle is bamboo based and completely biodegradeable whereas plastic on the other hand will take ages to decompose. Not only do plastic toothbrushes takes ages to decompose, they are harmful to marine life and end up in landfills damaging the environment. Additionally, bamboo toothbrushes are now becoming increasingly available and are priced mostly at par with plastic toothbrushes, so no they won’t hurt your pocket but will definitely contribute to a beautiful smile and a cleaner, greener earth.
3. Kitchen paper tissues - Are you one of those people that reach out to grab a tissue at every other second? Allow me to paint a picture for you. You crack an egg, you reach out for a kitchen paper tissue, you chop the veggies, you reach out for another one, you spill your tea and you want to grab another tissue and so on and so fourth. SO, are you this person? If yes, then you should definitely switch to bamboo based kitchen paper tissues. Why you ask? Because it does not lead to deforestation. Like toilet rolls, bamboo based kitchen paper tissues are made with bamboo fibres AND they are more absorbent because of bamboo is naturally more absorbent, that means your spills may be more, but the wastage will definitely be less.
You can definitely check them out online but if you want something long lasting then try these, you won’t regret it.
Now that I have shown you three products that you can definitely switch to, what are you waiting for? Try them today.
Remember SMALL CHANGES DO MAKE BIG DIFFERENCES, do it for a greener earth and for the future generations!
