Bamboo is the fastest growing and most sustainable plant on Earth making Bamboo fibers the most eco-friendly, sustainable fibers for a sustainable earth.
- Bamboo can be cultivated at a rate at which it can be grown without planting.
- Bamboo grows rapidly (~12-19” per day) and naturally without any pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers.
- Bamboo does not require agricultural tending or large diesel fuel tractors to plant seeds and cultivate the soil.
- Growing bamboo improves soil quality and helps rebuild eroded soil. The extensive root system of bamboo holds soil together, prevents soil erosion, and retains water in the watershed.
- No irrigation is required. Neither is replanting required. Almost no water is required to grow bamboo compared to cotton. Rain and humidity provide enough water due to the high water absorption of bamboo plants.
- Bamboo plantations are large factories for photosynthesis, which reduces greenhouse gases. Bamboo plants absorb 5 times the amount of carbon dioxide (a primary greenhouse gas) and produce about 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
- Soft as Silk. The bamboo fiber used to make GO Greens is softer than cotton with a similar to silk texture.
- Hypoallergenic. Bamboo fibers are naturally hypoallergenic. The bamboo fiber used to make the GO Greens™ is also Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified which means they are safe and tested for harmful substances.
- Highly absorbent. Bamboo fibers have a 60% higher water absorption rate than cotton.
- UV Protection. Bamboo fibers offer excellent UV protection naturally.
- Strong, Flexible and Abrasion Resistant. Bamboo fiber is strong and flexible, and even abrasion resistant.
The natural latex foam coating in GO Greens™ comes from sustainably grown rubber trees. Latex is 100% organic and it is 100% biodegradable. Like maple syrup, latex comes from the sap of a rubber tree. This type of harvesting doesn’t harm the tree. The latex coating will also decompose naturally.
