Bamboo: The Ultimate Sustainable Promotional Products Material
When choosing promotional products or awards, one of the most important qualities of the items is longevity. How long will the product last and the message remain visible? The lifespan of a promotional product is crucial for branding. It is equally important to the environment as materials will be kept out of landfills. Eco friendly promotional products made from bamboo are the optimal choice for green companies and green events. Bamboo promotional products are high quality, long-lasting and have very little negative impact on the environment.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is nature’s most sustainable and renewable resource. A member of the grass family, it is 100% naturally grown, without assistance from man and is naturally regenerative. Bamboo has an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year, naturally replenishing itself and growing to heights of 60 feet or more. Some bamboo species grow up to four feet per day, can be harvested every three to four years and does not need to be cut at the root. Bamboo spreads rapidly across large areas; because of this, it is known to improve soil quality in degraded and eroded areas of land. Bamboo requires 1/3 the amount of water to grow that cotton uses and has no natural pests which means it is grown without fertilizers, pesticides or chemicals.
Bamboo promotional products range from USB drives, kitchen utensils, desktop accessories, pens and more. With sleek designs that never go out of style, bamboo items have a high-perceived value and will be used for years to come. Bamboo kitchen items are especially popular promotional products as bamboo is naturally antibacterial. Cutting boards, utensils, serving pieces will be used frequently in kitchens keeping your logo and message visible, possibly on a daily basis.
Sustainable organizations choose bamboo awards for events. They recognize that recipients will not always display or keep their awards forever due to space, moves, job changes, etc. Since bamboo is 100% biodegradable, unwanted awards will not take up space in landfills.
At Eco Promotional Products, you will find dozens of bamboo products. What you will not find is bamboo clothing. While bamboo in its original form is highly sustainable and has many environmentally friendly attributes, turning bamboo into fiber for clothing, sheets, furniture, etc. is an unacceptable chemically intensive process. For eco-friendly apparel, consider organic cotton, hemp or fabrics made from recycled content.
