Moso bamboo also takes approximately 6 months to biodegrade, whereas a single plastic toothbrush takes a thousand years.
Sustainable bamboo plantation
One bamboo plant consists of several poles and new shoots will grow from the mother plant every year. Generally, 20-25% of the poles in a sustainable bamboo forest or plantation can be harvested each year. This happens without decreasing the number of poles, the plant does not die after harvesting (unlike with trees), which means no deforestation. In fact, by harvesting the mature plants, the yield and quality of the plantation increases.
How would you feel if you could grow 1 meter a day?
