Bamboo: the efficient raw material

Bamboo: the efficient raw material

Bamboo has many reasons that make it the ideal ecological material today as an alternative to other polluting materials since it is very versatile and versatile. Its characteristics position it as a perfect material for the elaboration of all kinds of goods. With it, we can almost completely replace plastic, metal, oil or other types of wood that are highly polluting.

We are talking about a 100% biodegradable product, one of the most important reasons for its use as an alternative material. You do not need any type of recycling process, choosing whether to use it or treat it as waste, both options being respectful with the environment. Likewise, it is not a scarce resource, it comes from the environment and can be cultivated easily, so it is an infinite source of energy unlike oil, plastic and metal. Its exploitation is based on a sustainable model that allows the generation of durable economic systems.

All this makes bamboo a tool against global warming, being a plant capable of capturing more CO2 than other plants, which is why it is considered a highly efficient species in absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It is a sustainable material since its short production cycles allow to have the necessary quantity for a constant performance.

These same production cycles show that it is an efficient material, since it is one of the fastest growing plants in the world, reaching 15 centimeters per day, making it a highly sustainable material to produce. Therefore, using bamboo is a good solution to optimize the land that humanity allocates to the production of resources, avoiding having to deforest our forests and jungles.

As we have verified, this is a very resistant plant. This translates to little or no presence of chemicals during cultivation. Thus highlighting that chemistry does not play any role in the handling of the bamboo once it is cut as it does not require a complex transformation process.

Similarly, it is a great option for energy production. Its high productive performance makes bamboo a perfect plant for the production of fuel of vegetable origin, being an alternative to other current fuels. It is also an easily applicable recycling option when disposing of bamboo products when they are no longer useful or have become obsolete.

Difference between FSC paper and recycled paper

Difference between FSC paper and recycled paper

Paper is part of our day to day, it covers many essential needs that we are not aware of despite using it daily and on a recurring basis. When we have breakfast and want to clean the table, when we go to the toilet, when we want to take note of something urgent that we do not want to be forgotten and of course, also to package products in a revolutionary and ecological way.

In the market we can find more than 500 different types of paper. The best known among all of them is undoubtedly writing but there are many more types: we can find newsprint, toilet paper, cellulose paper and also compostable paper to be able to wrap our food without harming the planet. We know this evolutionary concept of sustainable packaging as earthpack, a novel packaging system that is totally recyclable and biodegradable both in blue containers and on land and sea if it is not recycled correctly.

Each and every one of the papers that exist are necessary tools that are part of our lives as individuals and as a collective entity, since the role is part of daily communication, of the culture that surrounds our society, of education, of health and all areas that can come to mind.

As its existence is so implanted in our daily reality, most of the time we do not have any kind of feedback on the amount of daily solutions that paper solves for us and on the tasks that they facilitate each day. For years and years, paper has been changing and adapting to human needs, evolving in parallel with the technology developed and adapting to new forms of use and manufacturing, such as evolving to the concept of earthpack, allowing us to wrap fruits and vegetables with attractive , compact packaging, ecological and sustainable.

Paper is still a great unknown for most of the people who use it daily but, we are sure that the technological innovations related to this precious material will not stop surprising us. Its evolution and great utility will continue to accompany us and provide revolutionary solutions in the years to come.
