Bamboo vs. Organic Cotton as a Sustainable Material
BAMBOO needs nothing more
than sunlight and rainwater
Bamboo plants are
environmentally friendly, and its
manufacturing process produces a far
smaller carbon footprint.
The production of a single Cotton T-shirt
requires 2,700 litres of water
the equivalent of 70 showers.
No pesticides, insecticides or fertiliser
are required to grow bamboo while cotton is
responsible for no less than
11% of all pesticides and 25%
of all insecticides used in the world.
Approximately 10 times more bamboo
can be produced per square metre
than can be produced using cotton plants.
