Bamboo fibre is a biodegradable textile material. It can be 100% biodegraded in soil by microorganism and sunshine. The decomposition process doesn’t cause any pollution environment.
Bamboo fibre is the most sustainable of the natural fibers. The type of bamboo used for making fabric, commonly known as Moso, can reach a mature height of 75 feet in just 45 to 60 days and it grows fast. Because of its natural antibacterial properties, it needs no pesticides. If there is sufficient rainfall, no additional irrigation is required. It regenerates naturally through an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year.
The bamboo harvested for the production of Little Genie products is from an area which contain no Panda bears which are protected by the Chinese government. The bamboo is planted in a natural bamboo forest/mountain, so it does not need to cut down other trees or other forest for the bamboo to grow. Bamboo can be continuously re-harvested every 2-3 years with no damage to the surrounding environment.
If organic wipes made from bamboo becomes popular, it means more bamboo plantations, which means less deforestation and more oxygen for mankind. We would like that!
