Traditional degradable plastic items don’t biodegrade well in landfill due to a lack of oxygen. A hot dog was found intact in landfill after 25 years. A newspaper was still readable after 50 years. Please choose certified biodegradable or even better, compostable products. Choosing certified compostable products such as bin liners for your home or buying food items with compostable packaging are an excellent way to avoid contributing to landfill and helping the environment.
Facts about Bamboo
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet. It can grow 3 feet in height in 24 hours under appropriate climate conditions. Unlike other woody plants, bamboo reaches maturity after only 3 to 5 years.
Bamboo releases 30% more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide compared to other plants. Because of these features, bamboo greatly decreases amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and cleans the air.
Bamboo does not require fertilizers for optimal growth. Discarded leaves of bamboo provide all needed nutrients when they start to decompose.
