World Bamboo Day 2023

 

Today is our favourite day of the year, why you ask? Because it is WORLD BAMBOO DAY! Now, we spend all year celebrating bamboo, but today you get to celebrate with us.

Here at The Cheeky Panda, we live and breathe bamboo so you can enjoy our ultra-sustainable essentials, but what’s so special about bamboo? Why is it so sustainable?! let us tell you…

Speed:

Bamboo grows super-fast, it’s the Ferrari of the plant world. In perfect conditions, it can grow up to 3 feet in just 24 hours making it the fastest growing plant in the world – impressive right?! 

Ultra Renewable

Did you know bamboo is actually a grass? It doesn’t feel much like a grass or look much like a grass, but we can confirm it is in fact, a grass. Because it is a grass, when bamboo is harvested, the roots don’t need to be cut. This means the bamboo will grow back in no time (and without the need for human interference!) meaning it can keep up with the demand we have for disposable products.

Number, Numbers, Numbers...

Bamboo grows 30x faster than trees, produces 30% more oxygen, and absorbs 35% more carbon. These figures are important because it means that more bamboo = less carbon and we are always looking for ways to reduce carbon!

Using bamboo helps to reduce deforestation – it’s a simple as that. Thousands of trees are cut down PER DAY to make paper products, and we want to help reduce that. The less demand for tree-based products = less trees needing to be cut down. So, to summarise, use bamboo and save trees. Simple.

If we all work together on making small changes, together we can make a BIG difference. So, join us in celebrating bamboo and all the wonderful things this grass can do (this blog writer also doubles a poet in case you were wondering).

Much love,

Team Cheeky Panda
