At Green Paper Products, we’re constantly on the lookout for new materials that our customers are raving about. Packaging made from bamboo is becoming more and more popular each year, and for good reason: it’s an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based pollutants that manages to maintain incredible durability.
What Makes Bamboo Fiber Packaging All The Rage?
Even more than most eco-friendly materials, bamboo fiber packaging is ultra-renewable. It is able to grow incredibly fast, and because of this, has become a go-to for suppliers around the world.
The environmental benefits of bamboo are vast. Bamboo helps counterbalance harmful CO2 emissions by producing over 30% more oxygen than a tree of equal weight. It is also not a plant that needs to be rooted after it is harvested, and instead, when done correctly, it helps prevent soil erosion. Since bamboo is typically grown in high-rain areas that can easily fall prey to soil erosion, this baked-in benefit is a huge reason why it has become so popular with farmers.
An Alternate That Stands Out
Not only are bamboo fiber products an environmentally friendly option, but they are considerably durable and stronger than commonly used ingredients. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, allowing for durability without added chemicals. The elevated appearance of these plant-based products makes them a more aesthetically pleasing option compared to traditional, non-compostable products.
