What is special about Bamboo?
Bamboo is one of the world's most abundant and sustainable natural resources. This renewable material can be used in anything from clothing and tableware to skin care and dental hygiene! It's a common misconception that bamboo is a species of tree...but it's actually a grass plant! Bamboo is considered a sustainable material as it can be harvested in a significantly shorter amount of time than most commercial plant species, and can be grown without needing to be covered in harmful pesticides or use as much water. Often recognised as the fastest growing plant in the world, some Bamboo species can grow up to one metre a day. This regenerative plant works to remove CO2 emissions, is naturally pest resistant and can even rebuild eroded soil. Bamboo plants also produce 30% more oxygen than an equivalent area of trees!
Natural bamboo products I love and why!

Made with an environmentally sustainable bamboo handle, the Life Basics Charcoal Bamboo Toothbrush is excellent for cleaning teeth and maintaining fresh breath.

It works to clean and brightens your teeth and works to deodorise the mouth by reducing any bacterial growth that causes bad breath.
