Tuesday Yoga Giveaway: Bamboo Bottle Co
Posted on March 6th, 2012
Question: What environmental movement do you support?
How about avoiding plastic water bottles? The team at Bamboo Bottle Co. is a leader in this movement, with a canister that is good looking, functional, and as good for the environment as they could make it: from bamboo, a bit of plastic, and glass.
Bamboo is grown and harvested in temperate conditions that allow it to grow to its maximum potential – that’s 90 feet in 9 months. It’s hand selected and hand cut, to allow maturing and flowering strands to remain. This technique is good for ground soil, since no heavy machinery is used. And once cut, the bamboo will continue to grow—just like grass.
Did you know?
- Bamboo replenishes the environment and the air we breathe. Bamboo releases 35% more oxygen than equivalent strands of trees. And it can sequester up to 12 tons of carbon dioxide from the air per hectare. (Bamboo really does help fight global warming!)
- Harvesting bamboo does not destroy its root system, meaning there is no topsoil erosion or run-off.
- Harvesting of bamboo minimally impacts the wildlife, compared to hardwood "logging," where big machinery tears the land apart.
- The bamboo is harvested from areas designated and supported by the Chinese government for the sustainability of the species.
Glass is 100% natural. And the plastic used is BPA-free, dishwasher safe and recyclable.
